SERIES THURSDAY: Puppy Pirates by Erin Soderberg


ABOUT THE BOOK

Ahoy, mateys! Set sail for fun and adventure on a pirate ship full of puppies!

Wally is a pup with a nose for adventure. So when he stumbles onto a ragtag group of puppies who sail the seven seas, he knows he has to join the fun! But if pirates are supposed to be gruff and tough, this furry little guy isn’t exactly first-mate material.  Does he have what it takes to become a full-fledged puppy pirate?

Two perennial kid favorites—dogs and pirates—combine in this new chapter-book series perfect for fans of the Rainbow Magic series and all things piraty!


REVIEW

Wally, a golden retriever pup, left the farm in order to find a place to call home.  When he encounters a crew of puppy pirates he is determined to join them.  The problem is that he is afraid of a lot of things and the pirate crew isn't exactly welcoming.  So, Wally stows away in a crate of steak.  While in hiding he runs into another stowaway, a young boy named Henry.  Together the two must face the plank and pass the tests the captain puts before them in order to become part of the crew. First, I have to say that the cover is absolutely adorable with the puppy in the pirate hat.  Secondly, the story moves quickly and pleasingly.  Wally is a fun character that puppy-loving readers will want to cheer for, especially as he faces the challenges put before him.  The other characters are just as charming, from the pug twins, Puggly and Piggly, who love to pull pranks, to Captain Red Beard, who'd forget his hat if it wasn't on his head to the rascally Chihuahua cook, Steak-eye, who only cooks nasty tasting stew (at least until Wally gets involved).  For young readers who like pirate stories and puppy stories this series is a surefire winner. 


ABOUT THE BOOK

Ahoy, mateys! Set sail for fun and adventure on a pirate ship full of puppies!

Wally and his human friend, Henry, have passed the test. They are now officially puppy pirates—and just in time for an exciting new adventure. A treasure hunt! The puppies sail to a deserted island with treasure map in paw, ready to dig. But uh-oh! This island isn’t deserted after all. . . .

REVIEW

Wally, the golden retriever puppy, and his pirate friends are off to find treasure.  With Growlin' Grace's treasure map they are sure to find it.  But the map appears to be blank and it takes Henry, Wally's best human friend to figure out why.  Once they reach the island, all the excitement leads the crew to leave Wally, Henry, Puggly and Piggly (mischievous pug twins) behind.  Can they find the rest of the crew?  What about the treasure that seems to be guarded by a bunch of dalmatian.  A fun addition to the Puppy Pirates series for young readers who enjoy adventure stories with lots of excitement and plenty of amusement.  The theme of just what makes a treasure shines through without being heavy handed.
