(Albert Whitman & Company, September 2015)


"Multiethnic treat-or-treaters dressed as pirates conquer the streets of their suburban neighborhood...Kimmelman's playfully assured verse is punctuated with pirate exclamations ('Fill my belly!' 'Rot my teeth!')...and Monlongo's illustrations capture the visceral excitement of fully escaping into character on Halloween."  − Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"With its kid-friendly rhymes and abundance of pirate lingo, this appealing mash-up of Halloween and pirate themes captures the lighthearted fun of the holiday."  − The Horn Book
