About the Book



As Colin imagines himself in a series of adventures beginning with joining a pirate crew, his mother assures him that she will always be there to help if he needs her.



Book Synopsis



A delightful story of steadfast love between a pirate boy and his brave mom.

After reading his favorite book about a pirate boy, Danny wonders what would happen if he sailed away on a pirate ship. Luckily, his mother reassures him that she would find him, even if she had to swim on a dolphin, battle sea monsters, and wield a bottle of pirate-shrinking magic spray to do it! Young readers will love this adventurous and ultimately reassuring tale of a mother's love.



Review Quotes




"a warmhearted portrait of an endlessly patient parent, ready to help her child work through his fears and desires."--Publishers Weekly

"Danny and his mother read a picture book called Pirate Boy together and then, in a question-and-answer dialogue, create their own pirate adventure featuring Danny sailing away on a pirate ship with Mom close at hand, should he have second thoughts about the escapade. . . . Softly colored, uncluttered watercolor-style digital illustrations scored with thin, scratchy lines to suggest wind and motion perfectly match the nonthreatening tone of the text and feature just the right amount of accoutrement appropriate for a pirate story."--Booklist

"As he reads with his mom, little Danny wonders aloud what it would be like to be a pirate. From the comfort of his couch, his questions persist. 'What if I don't like it on the pirate ship? And I want to come back home?' With steadfast love, his mother answers every 'What if. . . ?' with confident answers that reassure the young boy. . . . A sweet Runaway Bunny book for the pirate set."--Kirkus Reviews
