Midwest Book Review, December 2009
The Picturebook Shelf"Baltazar and the Flying Pirates is a tale of a boy's dream adventure search for pirate treasure that leads him (and the pirates) to an unlikely treasure site. Their buried treasure in a swamp has been covered by a huge amusement park! There is no help for it but to go on a touring search for the treasure that is punctuated with fun rides and experiences along the way. Brave Captain Anne Bonney, also known as Redlocks, keeps the buccaneers focused and on task, with plenty of fun laced in. Delightful, lively illustrations keep the adventure leaping ahead as all eyes are on the prize. "Baltazar and the Flying Pirates" is a treat to read and to experience. It will appeal to kids age 6 and up. Promises of a sequel adventure are to be kept!"
