I had high hopes for this book. The cover is so adorable. But I found the story a bit difficult to follow especially for a picture book. The language was rather abstract. "A ship off on adventures. A ship stealing the front of Tom's house for disguise!" I have no idea how the ship stole the front of Tom's house. The book is also A bit scary as the pirates sneak in in the middle of the night and steal treasure from real fire breathing pirates. And why do the pirates who steal Tom away have to be girl pirates? That seemed a little strange. And although the illustrations are colorful and cute, there is an inconsistency to them that made me lose my interest. Overall, I was sadly disappointed.

Girl pirates is a welcome feature, and them inviting curious Tom along makes a good addition to an "acceptance of others" theme.

I like how it gets kids using their imagination, piquing their curiousities about what these pirates could be up to. I read it during a storytime and the kids were caught up in the adventure, one child asking if she could borrow it afterwards.

A keeper to be told again!

I like that the Pirates are girls (that parts great!), but, overall, it was more boring than I thought it was going to be.
