Owen's Pirate Adventure
by Patti Larsen (Acorn Press)
illustrated by Shaun Patterson
Owen loves everything about pirates and longs to be one someday. His wish is granted when a fishy-smelling band of pirates take him aboard their flying ship. But after attacks by a green sea monster and an angry cloud, the pirate life loses its allure.
A fun story for kids to read on their own or aloud to younger siblings. Patterson's big-eyed characters are fun to look at, too.
