Horn Book Review

When Edward, an avid reader with a vivid imagination, brings home a library book called 'Lost Pirate Treasure', a group of pirates seeking their lost riches visits him in the night. Although they beg and threaten, Edward refuses to hand over the book but offers to read it to them after learning that they don't know how. The acrylic art, rendered in a painterly style with a dark palette, and the easy text emphasize that reading is an adventure. From HORN BOOK 1997, (c) Copyright 2010.
