    Avast, me hearties! Here be a gem of a book. Adorable, skillfull illustrations of the world's worst (two) pirates, faithful to all their best features and flaws. If ye be a fan of derring-do, belly laughs, and dare me say love, ye'll enjoy this book or I'll be a lily-livered land-lubber. Arggh!

    My Toddler audience loved this book with its humorous illustrations and great read-aloud text. The kids enjoyed yelling tie! after each contest and enjoyed all the craziness that two pirates indulge in when they compete to see who is the mightiest, maddest, burliest, richest pirate in the whole world. One of the few pirate books to feature a female pirate, this book spoke to the girls in my audience, and they loved that Mo was every bit as good as her male companion whether she was eating hardtack or throwing a cannonball.

    Perfect to read to a boy and girl simultaneously! Fun writing, funny lines, great, rollicking clash between Titans pirate story, and rewarding, rather unexpected ending. We loved the illustrations, too! My niece, nephew, sister and I all really enjoyed this. Fun to read aloud, too!

    Pirate vs Pirate is a fun picture book for pre-school through 1st grade kids. They're introduced to the funny tale of two pirates who both rule the open seas, Big Bad Bart and Mean Mo. One day when the two pirates meet & try to up the other on who owns the most things, they both learn an important lesson. Maybe Big Bad Bart and Mean Mo aren't as bad as they try to be. This is a fun, laugh out loud read that kids who are fans of pirates and stories that take them out on the open sea will enjoy.

    A funny tale of Big Bad Bart and Mean Mo. Both pirates, one of the Atlantic, one of the Pacific. Both pirates try to best the other and find they are equals in everything, including amount of treasure. It ends as a love story. Great book!

    A match made in pirate heaven! Two pirates battle it out to see who is better, and discover that they may have met their match. Pirate lubbers will say Aarrr for this jolly tale of friendly pirate competition.
