fun plot-- a greedy pirate gets his comeuppance 1 Feb 2003
By Ken Miller - Published on
Format: Paperback
Pat Hutchins' _One Eyed Jake_ is a picture book about Jake, a pirate who can't seem to get enough booty, even if it means sinking his own ship.
Jake travels with a crew of three-- a bosun, a cook, and a cabin boy. None of his crewmates enjoy working with Jake-- he's mean, cruel, and they are tired of stealing. Each has his own aspirations. The bosun wants to guide large cargo ships, the cook wants to be a chef on a large passenger ship, and the cabin boy wants to be a fisherman.
Jake's ship steals a whopping load of booty from, in turn, a cargo ship, a passenger ship, and a fishing vessel. Each time, in order to keep his ship from sinking under the weight of the loot, Jake tosses one of his crew members overboard to the other vessel.
So, in the end, the bosun, cabin boy, and cook all get their wishes. Jake's ship, however, sinks under the weight of all that treasure.
One Eyed Jake's illustrations are not terribly good, but the text is fun to read, and my son's interest is held throughout. This book makes a nice complement to other pirate picture books, such as McPhail's _Edward and the Pirates_, and Mem Fox's _Tough Boris_.

Bright, funny, unique, weird...another Pat Hutchins classic 7 Feb 2012
By R. Frenzl - Published on
Format: Paperback
I remember "Rosie's Walk" as a child, and I loved the illustrations. Not long ago, I also came across "Clocks and More Clocks" and "Good-Night, Owl!" All three are brilliantly stylized, in the sort of folky-trippy illustrative manner of the 70s (which is my FAVORITE picture-book style). This book is illustrated much differently, but it still has Ms. Hutchins' distinctive eye for wackiness. Very colorful, very strange, reads a bit like a traditional folklore with a dash of modern dialogue. Any little boy who loves pirates should find this book amusing, and parents who appreciate the retro imagery of their youth will probably take a liking to it as well.

This was a favorite book from my husband's childhood. I wanted to find it hoping I could get it in good condition. I not only found it at a great price, but wonderful condition. Now, my husband and my children love reading it together!

Extremely Dissatisfied 18 Nov 2011
By Britt - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
When I received this book it was not in as good condition as it claimed to be. It was crumbled and REEKED of smoke. It's been a couple days now and the smell is still so strong. I can't even read this book because the smell is so overwhelming.
