4.0 out of 5 stars Funny Pirate Story 25 Nov 2013
Having never heard of author or illustrator I had no high expectations of this easy reader beginning chapter book. I was therefore pleasantly surprised to find a fun, imaginative story with a message for both the child and the parent. The art is also humorous and of the cartoon show quality. When Pete wishes his mom would play pirates with him he gets way more than he expected after she is hypnotized into believing she is one. Pete comes out realizing he'd better be careful what he wishes for and thankful for the mum he does have, not the one he wishes for. Parents themselves can take note to remember that of course you must play with your children but remember to be their parent, not their friend. If the messages don't hit you, it's still a funny story seeing mom getting into pirate escapades that she is going to have a lot of explaining to do for tomorrow!

5.0 out of 5 stars Pirate Mom Rocks 19 Jun 2006
By Raj Bhimani - Published on
I've shared this wonderful book with a dozen of my students so far. They've all been completely engrossed and enchanted by the magical story and the entertaining drawings. The 7 year olds can read it on their own, and have been reading it aloud to my younger students. It's adorable to watch. It's been a huge hit, and most of the students have gone out to get copies of their own to enjoy at home.

My wife is a pediatrician and this book has already become

a popular favorite in her waiting room. It puts several modern twists on the age-old childhood fantasy of becoming a pirate and does so in a very clever and engaging way.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun for Moms and Kids 5 July 2009
By Amazon Customer - Published on
The MC's mom is hypnotized into believing she is a pirate (at her son's request) then the hypnotist has to run to meet his laboring wife at the hospital without snapping her out of it. Among the many events that they have to get through before they track down the magician is a PTA meeting. As a mom this book was worth it just for that scene.

It is not a super easy read, but not too hard. Solid early to mid first grade, the sentence structure is a bit more complex than in the lvl 1 & 2 books in the same series. Since the MC is a boy, my daughter didn't enjoy this one as much as I did, but we had a few laughs. Perfect book for a pirate-loving little boy.
