The Pirates' Mixed-Up Voyage Reviews
A lovely, enjoyable anarchic children's book. It is very silly. But in a very good way.
My little guy and I really enjoyed this whimsical tale of tea shop pirates who set off on a grand adventure and get much more than they bargained for. Also, if you are a fan of clever alliteration, this book abounds with it, making for a lively and entertaining read-aloud experience. Quotable Quotes:They continued doggedly with their reading lessons, for in times of stress a good book is often all the comfort you can reasonably expect to find."You love me?" the captain could hardly believe his ears, and Toad was actually seen to shake his out in sheer disbelief. "But how can it be? I am a pirate, a proud, unprincipled profligate, peppered with imperfections - possibly penitent but probably past praying for, and you are a detective inspector devoted to duty and decency, deferring to dignity and degree. How can we dare to hope for happiness together?"
Nonostante l'abbia letto per la prima volta in età avanzata mi è piaciuto tantissimo! E' il classico libro per bambini che riesce a far sognare anche gli adulti. L'intreccio della trama è piuttosto elaborato (nonché scorrevole e divertente) e le ambientazioni sono un misto tra la favola e il fantasy.
(3.5) Silly. It's pretty good silly, though.
I read this ages ago and it was awesome and right up my alley - pirates! 1000 islands! weird, cool characters!
Ebbene sì, sto iniziando ad aggiungere anche le bellissime storie lette da ragazzina. Questo libro è divertentissimo e lo conservo ancora gelosamente nella mia libreria.
The first time I experienced this book was with a read aloud. I have since read it multiple times. Each time, it is a fresh, fun adventure tale of piracy and adventure in the Thousand Islands (though not the Thousand Islands on most maps, but different ones entirely, so as to avoid confusion). I love this book, as evidenced by the deplorable condition my copy is in - missing both covers, pages falling out. I think it is an excellently told, complicatedly twisted tale :)
