A very entertaining read for adults, written in pirate dialect Would be great for someone who can do a good pirate accent (not me) and/or for TalkLikeAPirateDay Aimed at first grade, but a little too sophisticated for 1st graders, I think Since it is entirely in dialect, even though the pictures emphasize what is actually going on, the whole book is written with vocabulary that would likely have to be explained.However, excellent illustrations and a good book for pirate enthusiasts who might already be familiar with pirate dialect. My Review: Munchkin and I found this at the library and it was absolutely perfect, I am hosting Arrgust on my blog and Munchkin is starting 1st Grade this month It was not exactly what I was expecting but it was entertaining The little boy had some imaginary pirate friends that helped him through his first day of school with reminders and helpful tips all in the typical pirate way Munchkin really liked the pirate talk and how none of the adults seemed to mind It is a fun book to ease a new 1st grader into school if they are a fan of pirates! Cute idea But the artwork shows a kid that does not look like a first grader He seems to be about 9 or 10 And either way, there are better pirate books for a child of either age than Treasure Island In this book we follow the journey of a boy through his 1st day of school, but there is a pirate twist to the story I gave this book 4 stars because it is a cute twist on your typical first day of school book It has great pictures and I loved how there were always pirates around the little boy I would recommend this book from kindergarteners to 2nd graders because they would enjoy reading an book about the first day of school, and they would love the way the book compared a school to a pirate ship The theme of this book is that you can make anythinginteresting if you let your imagination take over, and the genre is fiction. Although I did not particularly care for this book, I think it would be very popular with children who love pirates! Ruth's illustrations are beautifully rendered using pencil, Sumi ink, watercolor oilstick, and pastels I look forward to seeingof his work. What a cute book! Even the font of the writing fits in with the story This was a great read aloud for little ones just starting school or kids who have active imaginations and love pirates! Ever wonder how the imagination runs rampant in young minds This book looks into the mind of a first grade boy on his first day of school He imagines that he is a pirate The pirate theme is carried out throughout the entire story and pirate talk fills the pages of this book This is a book perfect for a read aloud in a first grade classroom as it is geared directly at first graders This book will help teachers explain that imagination has a place in the classroom, but it has to take a back seat at some point to learning I think that this book was very cute It uses words the way a pirate would say them and while this may be difficult for students to read and understand by themselves, it is the perfect book to help create a great lesson plan as a teacher The few things that really stood out to me from this book were the writing style, the pictures, and the plot overall The writing style was different and would definitely keep the interest of young readers The pictures were very colorful and made the children in the story look lifelike The author also included pictures of pirates in the background to help show what the boy was imagining I felt that this was a great way of illustrating the story The plot overall was good It kept myself, as an adult reader, interested to see what happened at the end of the story Overall a great book for the first day of school, and definitely age appropriate for first graders As a teacher, this book allows you to role play for your students and make the lesson fun for them by giving you the ability to dress as a pirate and explore the open seas (the students' imaginations) with them. It is a boy’s first day of school, so he dons his skull and crossbones tshirt and completes the morning routine, with an imaginary crew of pirates swaggering right along with him As the boy climbs aboard the “grand jolly boat” (school bus), he observes: “Fore and aft bustled a salty crew of swabbies, sailing for adventure across the briny deep!” The story is told entirely in pirate lingo, so the “Pirate’s Vocabulary” at the book’s end is essential for the ordinary land lubber The events in the students’ actual school day are portrayed realistically with bright watercolors, but the imaginary pirates and their antics are comically rendered in muted pencil on the outskirts of each scene The pirates can be seen ambling along with their peg legs, swords in hand, and parrots by their side, running to the playground for recess time and sitting as still as can be during a story about the sea Pirate enthusiasts and their “hearties,” (aka “friends”) will be amused by such scenes as the students making a classmate walk the plank (down the length of the seesaw), with the pirates egging them on in the background The target audience of kindergarten/early elementary may be slightly discouraged by the image of a first grader tackling Treasure Island on his own, and perhaps the illustration would have madeof a connection if it portrayed the boy reading it with an adult Otherwise, a whale of a tale that will be most enjoyed when read aloud with a gruff and energetic pirate’s voice.

I read it to my boys the day before my oldest started kindergarten Immediately the language of the book sucks you in and begs to be voiced by a thick accented buccaneer We got to the end and went straight back to the beginning to read it again! This time we spenttime looking at the pictures The illustrations in this book are pure genius! They bring a young boy's imagination to life a clear and perfect companion to the text.Of course my favorite part was last night when I tossed the book to my husband, who is usually reluctant to read to the boys (because I'm so good at it?) He consented before knowing he was being asked to perform, but to my amazement took out his best deep, gravely pirate voice and put on a show for a captivated audience He outdid my pirate rendition considerably! It was amazing! What a wonderful book and a wonderful memory! This one is definitely going on my list for the book shelf!
