Rated 5 out of 5 by from a wonderful read It's not easy to find a pirate themed book for a younger audience, but this one certainly does the trick! My four year old son absolutely loves this one. The main character searches the high seas for dirty socks, until he meets his match in a female pirate who steals underwear. A great read for children of this age.
