Horn Book Review

Dirty Joe and his ragged band sail the seven seas in search of dirty socks, proudly flying their foul booty from the rigging and sending searing smells soaring skyward. But Joe meets his match when he encounters Stinky Annie, the undergarment varmint and his long-lost sibling. Funny caricature illustrations enhance the text's rollicking rhymes in this big sister/little brother battle of wits. (c) Copyright 2010.
