The dreaded Dirty Joe and his piratical crew sail in search of the smelliest treasure ever: dirty socks! The rogues cheerfully pillage their way across the seven seas, until the day they run across another band of piratesone led by the notorious Stinky Annie Has Dirty Joe finally met his match?From Grammy Award ;winning storyteller Bill Harley and bestselling illustrator Jack E Davis comes a zany, tonguetwisting, sidesplitting tale certain to be prized by budding buccaneers! Dirty Joe is a pirate who sails the seven seas, attacking ships and stealing their stinky socks He finally meets his match when he runs up against Stinky Annie and her crew of women pirates who steal underwear It turns out that Annie is his older sister She bests him in the fight and steals his underpants The moral of the story? Older sisters will always tell you what to do My son liked this story, but it was a bit wordy for him He was definitely squirming half way through. People may think I'm taking this too seriously, or I'm too sensitive, and I'm okay with that This IS a fun story But I find the underwear bounty disturbing Forcing someone else to give you their socks is one thing Forcing someone to give you their underwear is a violation, and I have no desire to teach my children that it is appropriate, or that they have to go along with such a request I also found the lesson about how mean big sisters are to be disturbing, since I was reading the book to my daughter who is a big sister to her little brother. I bet you thought that the reason your socks disappear is because of a sock monster in the wash You'd be wrong There are pirates that steal them! But there's another ship lurking on the oceans that steals something too Our pirate friends better beware.Ages: 4 8Cleanliness: there are pirates that steal undies and hang them on their mast The story ends by saying If you've got an older sister, then I feel bad for you, 'Cause just as long as she's alive, she'll tell you what to do.**Like my reviews?
