IMAGINING AN ADVENTURE 17 July 2011
By Gail Cooke - Published on Amazon.com
Format: School & Library Binding
Most young ones probably dream about going to the moon, becoming a princess in a far away land, sailing as captain on a pirate ship, and much more. However, at the bottom of these dreams what they always want to have is the safety of home, so youngsters will be pleased with this reassuring tale of a mother's love and what she will do to bring her son home should he go off on a fantastic adventure.

Eve Bunting has penned well over 100 books for children - do believe we've read a great many of them and enjoyed each one as they always entertain and teach a valuable lesson.

An abstract painter and children's book illustrator Jill Fortenberry creates charming and alarming (in the case of sea monsters) full color full-page illustrations to accompany this story of a small boy who wonders what his mother might do should he go off on a pirate ship.

There is always a solution no matter how dire the situation 19 Feb. 2014
By Carole P. Roman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I think this was the cutest book. It reads like a real conversation between a mother and son. The son keeps coming up with perilous or uncomfortable situations, and Mom calmly anticipates and provides a solution. The beautiful theme is that I will always be there for you , no matter what the situation. You are never lost or abandoned, and there will always be a way to put things the way we want. Lovely sentiment, a relaxing reinforcement to put any child at ease in our anxiety driven society. I love this book!

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Wonderful read before bed time and/or kids interested in pirate stories. Beautifully written and illustrated depicting a mother's love for her child.
A bit like The Runaway Bunny 20 Dec. 2011
By Debnance at Readerbuzz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: School & Library Binding
While a boy and his mom were reading a book called Pirate Boy, the boy asked his mom, "What if I want to be a pirate and sail away on a pirate ship?" His mom reassures him that she will follow him wherever he goes and that she will be there with him to protect him from all danger.

A gentle story that reminds children that moms will always be there for them.

"'Okay. But, Mom, what if there are sea monsters, and they want to eat you up?'

`Then I will spray them with my magic spray. SSSSSSS. And they will get smaller and smaller and smaller. They will be as small as your goldfish.'"
Great story with charming illustrations 11 Aug. 2012
By Lisa - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Great story with charming illustrations. Danny and his mom read a pirate book together. "What if I want to be a pirate and sail away on a pirate ship?" Mom would be sad, but will always be ready to rescue him and bring him home if he needs it, armed with magic spray that shrinks monsters and pirates. Definitely recommended.

(Note: I received a free advance reading copy of this book from the publisher at an American Library Association Annual Conference. I was not required to write a positive review. Thank you, Holiday House!)
