PreSchool-Grade 3. Edward is an endearing, studious-looking little boy who reads everything he can get his hands on."Cereal boxes at the breakfast table...seed catalogues that arrived on the coldest day of winter, the inscription on the monument in the town square, and books.all kinds of books." Edward becomes so involved that whatever he reads seems to be real. One day at the local library he finds a volume entitled Lost Pirate Treasure and takes it home; that night pirates invade his bedroom, demanding that he hand over the book. In the ruckus that ensues, the child bravely refuses (it's checked out on HIS card, after all), but generously ends up reading it aloud to the pirates, who never learned how themselves. McPhail's tale colourfully shows the magical worlds a good book can create. The acrylic on canvas illustrations have a fantastical appearance, especially when Edward leaps into action with Admiral Peary, Robin Hood, and Joan of Arc. Edward and the Pirates will make a great read-aloud as it encourages children to read and discover the fun and adventure in books..Christina Linz, Macon Technical Institute Library, GA
