Charlotte Jane the Hearty gets all the juice out of her days with pirate-girl pizzazz! She loves swashbuckling sessions, treasure hunts, and Fantastic Feats of Daring-all of which prove she has formidable oomph. There's absolutely no room in her day for bedtime. But can Charlotte Jane refuse to snooze and still be her hearty pirate self?

Myra Wolfe  is a debut picture-book author. She lives in Portland, Oregon, with her family. Maria Monescillo  has worked as an animator and children's book illustrator in her native Spain, where she lives with her husband and baby daughter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love love love this book! This is such a fun read for toddlers. We even use examples from this book to help my 2-year-old stay in bed and go to sleep (or else he'll loose his oomph, like Charlotte Jane). He loves this book and we love reading it to him.

Editorial Reviews

Monescillo's detailed and gently textured watercolors are full of insouciant pirate energy (Charlotte Jane's bravado is matched by that of her surly teddy bear, who wears an eye patch), and Wolfe's text has as much charm and verve as her heroine."- Publishers Weekly "[This] bedtime story is satisfying, and casting a little girl as a pirate is downright refreshing."- Kirkus Reviews "The use of dialogue and strong vocabulary results in a well-paced story that flows elegantly from beginning to end. The whimsical watercolor illustrations-accompanied by digitally created textures to add depth-are captivating, and perfectly complement the text. A generous helping of humorously entertaining pirate speak makes this an enjoyable choice for readers and listeners alike."- School Library Journal "
