They're pirates. They're dinosaurs? They're Pirasaurs!

We're Pirasaurs! We're Pirasaurs! We rule the open seas! We'll cannon-blast you to the past! We do just what we please!

Meet the Pirasaurs, a ragtag team of seasoned pirate dinosaurs looking for adventure and treasure! There's fearsome Captain Rex, golden-toothed Velocimate, one-eyed Bronto Beard, and more fearsome, buccaneering beasts....as well as one new recruit who may be small, but who's eager to prove he can learn the ropes and find his place on the team.

But when a trap is set upon the Pirasaurs while looking for buried treasure, it's up to the littlest recruit to show the team that there's more to a Pirasaur than meets the eye patch!

Editorial Reviews

â??Prehistoric pirates are always worth a play, as is the peaceable themeâ?¦â? - Kirkus"Funk (Lady Pancake & Sir French Toast) handles this mashup with just the right combination of swagger and heart; his succinct, bouncy text should inspire rollicking read-alouds. Slack's (Race Car Count) richly textured digital artwork may, in this context, bring to mind images painted on a ship's deck. -- Publishers WeeklyPraise for Josh Funk"When I was a kid my best friend was Josh Funk. I think he's about to become a friend to a whole new generation of kids." - B.J. Novak, author of #1 New York Times Bestseller The Book with No PicturesPraise for Michael Slack's Elecopter"The author of Monkey Truck (Holt, 2011) takes his characters to the skies with the highly versatile and helpful Elecopter, an elephant blessed with the main rotor, tail rotor, and landing skids of a helicopter." -- School Library Journal"Ahh! The cuteness! It blinds! Well, that's what you get when you take a rotund, big-eyed baby elephant, give her landing gear and helicopter blades, and send her into the savanna to save animals. Kids will instinctively get it and probably love it." -- Booklist"Giggle-inducing humor and nail-biting action..." -- Publishers Weekly
