" An attempt at a cute story about a girl kidnapped by pirates on the way to visit her grandmother. Something just fell flat for me, though. There is reference to rum, which could upset some parents. In the end it is discovered that Molly's mother is an even more feared pirate, which seemed kind of odd. Good for those who have exhausted other pirate-themed books. " said.

" Funny that a girl captured by a fearsome group of male pirates and put to work, turns out to be none other than the daughter of a more fearsome group of female pirates who overtake that very group of male pirates and put them to work. Good if you liked the other two Cornelia Funke/Kerstin Meyer books. " said.

" This confused me at first. I expected Molly, kidnapped by pirates, to stage some kind of escape, or at least sabotage the pirates' dinner! Instead she's simply unfazed by her captivity, and completely confident that it's all going to be just fine... because she knows something the pirates don't! The kind of book you appreciate so much at the end, you need to then re-read it once you're in on the joke. Well done! " said.

" Basic Plot: A little girl on her way to visit Grandma gets kidnapped by pirates!This one was a lot of fun. There were great pirate nicknames, funny pirate drawings (though the art wasn't as good of a quality as I'd hoped), and one spunky little girl. The twist at the end was not much of a twist, but for small children who see it coming it's a lot of fun to anticipate. Overall, it was a fun, girl-power story that had my son giggling and me smiling. I'd highly recommend it. " said.

" Final Project: This was a really cute book the illustrations were very fitting for the story and really cute. I liked how this book shows a girl that is not afraid to stand up to the boy pirates. Girls need to know that its ok to stand up to whoever you need to stand up to. I also liked how her mom was a pirate is shows that women can do the same thing that men can do and there is nothing wrong with that. " said.

"When Molly is abducted on the high sea by a boat of men pirates, she outsmarts them and works hard to get a message to her mother - an even more fearsome pirate - and her ship of women pirates so Molly can continue her journey to visit her Grandmother. This would be a great story to read out loud, as Funke develops some great pirate names (e.g. Morgan O'Meany and Willy Wooden Hand) and uses descriptive language meant to be heard. I also enjoyed Meyer's cartoonish illustrations as well, as they have great personality and really fit the tone of the prose. " said.

"Rockin' book. My kids (aka - my students) love pirate tales and this has been a great one to share with them. Molly is a strong female character (and her family is AWESOME!). The book does great things to break down gender stereotypes and expectations -- about what women and girls can do, how they should behave, and their capacity to take care of and provide for themselves. The illustrations are rich and the kids love catching all the exciting little details. A big downfall (for me) is the absence of even a single character of color." said.
