PIRATES AND DINOSAURS! It's like the Reese's Peanut Butter Cups of books! It was so popular at our house that one of Boy Detective's school teachers asked to borrow it. Truth be told, I was laughing as much as the kids. Well of course Captain Stubble is crying because dinosaurs stole his pirate ship! And of course Flinn and his school friends, who find the Captain in the back of their classroom's supply closet, are the only ones who can help! What doesn't make sense about that? The art is kid-like to represent Flinn's imagination, without being messy and incoherent. Go for it, you won't be sorry!

My 4 year old daughter loved this book. Despite having 4 other books checked out with this one, she made me read it to her every night.

Imaginative, swashbuckling story + unusually bold illustrations = entertaining read for 6-year-old boys
