Join Captain Crave and his pirate crew as they race and chase critters of every shape and size in the search for the

perfect pet.

"Live in the sunshine,  swim the sea, drink the wild air."

"Ferry fills her yarn with loads of pirate lingo and affectionate pokes at pirate tradition, while Myer's luscious, thickly painted illustrations look as if they've been frosted. Readalouds don't come much rowdier."                                                                                                               -Publishers Weekly (starred review)

              "Rife with buccaneer-speak and salty seadog sentences,

                Ferry's text uses repetition to its greatest advantage." -Kirkus Review

"Ferry's story and Myers'acrylic and oil paint illustrations are a perfect match - the details in the writing and the accompanying pictures are hilarious and smart, and the dialect will encourage children to try out their best pirate accents. Animated readers may find a new read-aloud in this book. The illustrations will delight kids, who will find something new every time they pick it up.  Great writing and vivid illustrations make this a sure bet for most collections."  -School Library Journal
