    I didn t like this one The pictures land a little too close to the uncanny valley, and the story doesn t make any sense Worse, the first half of the book is driven by the main character withdrawing weakly from some slightly overbearing neighbors, and then lashing out in disproportionate retaliation once he gets the slightest bit of power For the record, it s unlikely the author would agree with this characterization, but this is, nonetheless, a weird revenge fantasy If I m really honest, th I didn t like this one The pictures land a little too close to the uncanny valley, and the story doesn t make any sense Worse, the first half of the book is driven by the main character withdrawing weakly from some slightly overbearing neighbors, and then lashing out in disproportionate retaliation once he gets the slightest bit of power For the record, it s unlikely the author would agree with this characterization, but this is, nonetheless, a weird revenge fantasy If I m really honest, though, these claims are probably after the fact rationalizing of the fact that I just don t like the book The art reminds me of Chick tracts, and that s strike one, two, and three, all in one go.my favorite quote At last, every single buccaneer was bobbing in the waves, beaten, bubbling, and blustering

    3.5 stars goodThis would be a good book to read for kids who don t like to bathe In it, Sammy is enjoying a game in his basement he made pirates from things standing around, and was working up a plan to get their loot when his mother admonished him to get clean as his grandmother was soon to arrive.His father had just arrived home with a new, very green, bathtub Their neighbor had just arrived home with his own new purchase a red speedboat When Sammy took his bath, the tub took him o 3.5 stars goodThis would be a good book to read for kids who don t like to bathe In it, Sammy is enjoying a game in his basement he made pirates from things standing around, and was working up a plan to get their loot when his mother admonished him to get clean as his grandmother was soon to arrive.His father had just arrived home with a new, very green, bathtub Their neighbor had just arrived home with his own new purchase a red speedboat When Sammy took his bath, the tub took him on an adventure to the seashore Along the way, they overturned the neighbor s sons and caused a wave to rock his boat They also met up with a friendly sea serpent, who helped them defeat a band of pirates and swipe their treasure.I think this would be a fun story for kids who don t like to bathe, as it illustrates the power their imaginations have to turn the boring into the fantastical This particular tale, however, was not really to my taste The illustrations were good but didn t captivate me, and the story itself seemed incomplete the grandmother didn t have a role beyond being mentioned as the reason for the bath, which would have been fine except she appeared in the closing illustrations I would have liked the story better if she had had a role in the pirate adventure perhaps by exclaiming over the stolen loot However, these minor dissatisfactions are my own And my rating is solely based on my own, adult, opinions I don t imagine a child would notice or care, so this would be a great book for kids
