Synopsis: "Yo ho ho! Pete loves pirates, but his mom thinks they are rude and messy. Then Pete and his mom go to see the Amazing Marco, and Marco hypnotizes Pete’s mom into thinking she’s a pirate! Now Pete’s mom won’t behave. She chases the neighbors. She steals underwear off other people’s clotheslines. She’s even flying the Jolly Roger over the house. Pete has to find the Amazing Marco. He wants his real mom back!"
My Review: This was such a fun and silly book to read with Munchkin. We both had some laughs watching the mom act like a pirate. Munchkin loved that she used a wooden spoon for a sword. It is a good level 3 book for those readers who have gained a lot of confidence and who have a little bit longer of an attention span. The illustrations in this one also added to the quirky and funny story, it will definitely keep young readers interest.
My Rating: This was definitely a fun and silly book to read with kids, a goofy role reversal where the kid has to take care of his hypnotized mom. We had a blast reading this book and give it a rating of Three Paws and a Stump Wag.
Good Night! Sweet Dreams!
