Pirate v. Pirate - Book Review

Pirate vs. Pirate is an exciting children's book by Mary Quattlebaum and Alexandra Boiger. This book is intended for children ages 4-8 but I feel it appeals to a broader audience, including me!

The first thing I noticed about this book is the amazing illustrations. Many of the pictures are full page, making the story really come to life! Each pirate in the story has a different look with the neatest features. And the two main pirates are gruesome and grizzly while still being incredibly sweet in their own way!

These two pirates meet in the middle of the sea and battle each other to see who is the best! They go through many competitions to come down to a tie breaker. That's when the story takes a funny turn that you will just have to read the book to see!

The entire story is fun! From the pirate language and funny folks, to the funny challenges. This book is sure to appeal to boys and girls!
