My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Josh Funk cleverly combines two things our kids love, Pirates and Dinosaurs in a swashbuckling tale across the open seas where adventure and treasures abound. With plenty of buccaneering beasts, prehistoric scallywags, and mutiny, you are sure to wish you could join Captain Rex and her crew.
Michael Slack’s illustrations are fun and playful and puts you right in the middle of the action as a new recruit tries to prove his worth, longing to become a Pirasaur. Your children are sure to love this book as much as I did. My students love Josh Funk. He writes the sort of books they like to read. He also has an incredible website that has lots of resources for kids, parents, and educators.
