Shiver me timbers! It's the DINOSAUR PIRATES!

Meet Captain Rex and his band of buccaneers. These dinosaur pirates sail the seven seas in search of buried treasure, but whenever they hit an obstacle-like a giant shark or pea-soup fog-the crew members are quick to say they can't overcome. But Captain Rex just glares and says, "CAN'T YE?" And, somehow, the crew always comes up with a solution.

A delightful story about using one's creativity and individual strengths to solve problems. It will encourage kids everywhere to think and say, "I can!"

Review quote

Cartoonish illustrations feature thick, solid colors and a mix of textures. The palette shifts according to the dinosaurs' environment, which provides visual clues to the story's progression. The crew demonstrates that they have learned the lessons well when they outsmart Rex at the end, making sure that he shares the treasure. The author includes a list of "piratey words" to be sure readers understand everything in the story and to possibly inspire them toward their own fantasy adventures.-- "Booklist" (6/3/2017 12:00:00 AM)
