" Always love Catrow's frantic illustrations, the rhyming text is uneven, but the list of pirate manners in the back is a nice touch for those scalawags who need to review! " said.

" Want to stress good behavior and still have fun? Read this book to your kids and delight in the antics of silly pirates being polite! Excellent book! " said.

" Great fun! Books on manners can be a tough sell, but occasionally one comes along that gets the message across through cascades of giggles -- the text is solid and mostly well rhymed, but the Catrow's wonderful silly-gross illustrations take it to the next level of endearing. " said.

" I received this fun book from our book fair this week. I then did a guest reading in a first grade room and had some pirate fun! It's a quick, rhyming, fun read for young ones that also can be a good social/behavior reminder. " said.

" Yet another pirate book...but just as good as all the rest! Who better to teach manners than those who know how to live on the edge? Argh, this is an especially good year to go over the rules of common decency. " said.

" By no means literary genius but my 3yo LOVED it and I enjoy Catrow's art. It also came in handy when trying to get her to stop interrupting while other people are speaking..."what do the pirates say?" " said.

" Started out good enough, but the biggest problem is that the pictures don't make any sense at all. They are so disconnected from the narrative that when my child asks why a pirate is doing something in a picture, half the time I don't even know *what* he's doing, let alone why. The message is good enough, but only sometimes reinforced by the illustrations. " said.

"RHyming story that illustrates how pirates use their manners. The text flows, makes sense and rhymes. The message is that pirates have good manners, even if they do steal and do some bad things. The end of the story lists the Pirate Manners. Nice read aloud for younger kids. The list in the back would be a good thing to go over for classroom teachers in the beginning of the year. I don't normally like pirates or rhyming text. I think both can be hard to understand for younger readers, but this one is cute with accessible vocabulary." said.
