Captain Flinn and the Pirate Dinosaurs Hardcover – October 1, 2005 by Giles Andreae (Author)

This book arrived at my grandson’s address in excellent condition. I purchased this for a little boy who LOVES pirates and we both saw this title at the back of his favourite book at the moment. ..Mungo and the Bedtime Pirates. I pay a lot for postage to Australia ($20) but when I talk to my three year old and he tells me all about it and when I KNOW he loved having the mailman give him his own parcel and how many times he reads the book. ….it’s all worth it!I would recommend this book to anyone who has a special little person in their lives who enjoy you reading with them and who LOVES pirates. Thank you for making my little boy and I very happy. We will be for a long time. …. Check it out!

From School Library Journal Kindergarten-Grade 3–This imaginary adventure combines a boy’s two passions–pirates and prehistoric animals. Flinn’s markers run out while he is drawing a dinosaur at school and he goes to the supply closet to get more. There he discovers a sobbing pirate who explains that his ship has been stolen. Along with three friends, Flinn vows to help Captain Stubble retake the Acorn. The closet wall falls away, revealing a bright blue day and a scrappy-looking vessel. The children don pirate garb and Captain Stubble, who prefers to be the cook, puts Flinn in charge. They discover that the Acorn has been taken over by fierce, pirate dinosaurs, and a great battle ensues. All of the creatures jump overboard–except for the Tyrannosaurus rex. Flinn crosses swords with the frightening beast until it finally surrenders. Then it is time to return to school and the children step back through the closet and into the classroom where everyone is wondering where they have been. Ayto’s watercolor-and-ink illustrations are angular, bold, and lively. The pirate dinosaurs–complete with eye patches and pointy weapons–are a curious combination of ferocious and precious. They look very much like Flinn’s drawing. The fast-paced action and vibrant artwork make this tale a fun and exciting read-aloud.–Linda Staskus, Parma Regional Library, OH Copyright © Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc.

Captain Flinn and the Pirate Dinosaurs Hardcover – October 1, 2005 by Giles Andreae (Author) Review

Our five year old Kindergartener requests all these pirate books by Giles Andreas to be read over and over. He never tires of listening to these stories. -Read Reviews-

Our 4-year-old nephew is obsessed with dinosaurs, so we thought this could be a great book series to get him started on. The story and artwork were pretty fun. It’s a little on the longer side for that age range, but he sat through the whole thing. We’ll probably continue to purchase him books in the series!
