The Pirate Train...Written by Nicole Fisk, with Jack Fisk....Illustrated by Chad Vivas
This is at the top of the list of books that I've personally enjoyed reading and reviewing. I read it three times and forgot that I was reading it to provide a review in the process.
This rhyming story from its highly educated author is a showcase in originality and precision. If you don't love pirates, you will still love this book. And if, like myself, you are fascinated by pirates and their lore, you will love this even more. Displaying an exceptional knowledge of pirate lingo, Nicole weaves together a sequence of rhyme patterns that are never forced or clumsy. This story, without giving it away, teaches in a fun way how a family can adapt and change courses in life if things aren't working out as planned. And it does this in such an imaginative way that you'll be hard-pressed to find anyone who's come up with the notion and main idea presented here. Enjoy this today by following the Amazon link to the right, and be sure to leave a review. Chances are it will you'll give it an A+ like I did.
