Marc Rosenthal. Archie and the Pirates
Harper Collins $22.50 ISBN 978-0-06-144164-6
Reviewed by Koryn, Age 12

In the morning, Archie is jolted awake with terrible news. Rough and smelly pirates have landed on the island and captured Beatrice!

Archie the monkey wakes up one morning on an island in the middle of the ocean. He quickly makes friends with Clarice the bird and Beatrice the tiger. When pirates capture Beatrice, Archie must think up a plan-and fast!

Archie and the Pirates is a cute, funny, and creative picture book. The story and the illustrations were great, and who doesn’t love monkeys? Archie and the Pirates is an awesome book for little boys ages 4-8. Personally, I think this is a book anyone can enjoy.

Marc Rosenthal is the author and illustrator of many picture books, many of which have won awards. He lives with his wife, son, and cat. Mr. Rosenthal really likes pirates.

I give Archie and the Pirates 5 stars.
