Jonny Duddle pirate books are the best! This one is a bit darker than his other picture book, "The Pirate's Next Door" but it's so much fun! We (me and the 5-year-old pirate lover) really enjoyed this the first time though and LOVED it the second the third.

The Pirate Cruncher book. This is the second of Jonny Duddle's pirate books I've read. The plot turned out to be just okay for me. I'm not sold on the ending. The pictures, though, are a lot of fun.

I read this book for my summer camp (30 kids ages 5-8) on a day we did an underwater monster theme. Out of the ten books I did during camp, this was the one they liked the best and kept talking about. I introduced with a quick discussion of the Midas Touch and the dangers of greed, so the kids would know the story didn't end all rosy! I originally DID NOT want to read a book where everyone gets eaten, but it fit our theme so well and I'm glad we chose it, because it kept the kids captivated and it was one none of them had heard before.

We had to warm up to this book. The illustrations are fantastic (that's a big deal in this house).

The biggest draw backs to this book is the choice of fount and black type on a dark background. The publisher needed to help the author of the book understand the difficulty in reading "fancy" font; and then they made it more difficult to read by putting black font on a dark blue background.

With that said after multiple read through I got good enough at reading/remembering the words that I am requested to read this book nearly every night.

Also, there's a pretty cool fold down page toward the end of the book that my son loves (no spoiler alert).

Cute story about greedy pirates following a singing pirate to find treasure... of course they are bold and brave to begin with until the singing pirate tells them that this isn't a safe journey and the island disappears. Spoiler... the island is actually an ocean beast who eats them up and burps out the singing pirate.... who is a marionette. Clever, unexpected ending that had us roaring. We loved looking back at the pictures as we didn't even notice he was a marionette!

This was a big hit with my five year old. We got it as a present for someone else, but after we read it he requested that we buy it for our house. The pictures are very evocative. I did not find the story to be that compelling but my son did. This would be a great choice for a pirate loving kid.

Stunning art, great writing, fun to share!

I've lost track of how many times I've read "The Pirate Cruncher" for my twin 4.25-year-old sons in the few days since I purchased it. I love it because it's interesting to read aloud: there's a mix of reading text and singing verse, plus some of the pirate crew's thoughts are portrayed in illustrations so your pre-literate children can help "read" the book aloud too. My kids LOVE LOVE LOVE the story, and the illustrated clues on each page about the story's mystery. I can't recommend this book highly enough for 4+-year-olds. I too am surprised, like another reviewer, that it did not get a Caldecott award. We own several Caldecott award-winning books and while I see the difference in the sophistication of illustration between "Pirate Cruncher" and, say, "A Sick Day for Amos McGee", these illustrations engage my pre-literate kids on many levels and get them to help me tell the story aloud. Several months ago, I was becoming inclined to try longer, chapter books with my boys but then I read that experts say that parents are abandoning picture books too early for their pre-schoolers. This book is an outstanding example of how pictures can promote a real dialog between the adult reader and his/her audience. Such fun!

I bought this book for 4 year old grandson. I was worried it had a little TOO much crunching but it was a huge hit! There are a lot of funny words, super good illustrations, a big fold-out page that is a hit and and a kind of 'I spy' aspect. It has a lot going on so lends itself to many, many readings!! Not a fast bedtime read. You will be looking at the illustrations over and over..and over again!
This book is adorable! I used it at work today with a first grade group & it was a big hit!
