    " This is a good story to use if you are wanting to teach kids that it's okay to like reading, even if their friends don't like to read. The pictures are very colorful and detailed to grab your attention. "

    " The power of books! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cat | 2/5/2014

    " This is the perfect book for a children's librarian. The book is about bunnies and pirates and adventure..and the best part the main character is Henry who loves to read! He saves the bunny pirates from destruction by using his book knowledge. It's great! One of my favs! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mandy | 2/2/2014

    " Henry disappoints his father Black Ear because he'd rather read books than act like a bad bunny pirate. But Henry learns lots from his books and knows that a nasty storm is coming. Will the buccaneer bunnies and Black Ear believe him or think he's too absorbed in his tales? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Modboy | 2/1/2014

    " The plot seemed eerily familiar and now I can see that it's the same author who wrote Henry & the Crazed Chicken Pirates, which I liked a tad better. Basically, after a shipwreck reading saves the day and the pirates come around to how cool books are. Colorful detailed art and a happy ending. "

    " Reading saves the day! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Beth | 1/12/2014

    " Black Ear has had enough of his book loving son Henry, who reads Rabbitson Crusoe while cleaning the deck. After the Salty Carrot ship is destroyed in a sea storm, Henry and the crew survive by floating on the chests that carries his books. Black Ear is proud of Henry for using the knowledge in books to start their new island and sees the importance of books. The artwork is impressive! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heidi | 1/12/2014

    " One of my second grade classes (I'm an instructional aide) heard this in the library last week. I loved the pictures, the clever writing, and most importantly the emphasis that books are important. So I bought it for my great-nephew. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer | 1/12/2014

    " Henry is the son of Barnacle Black Ear, the captain and one of the fiercest of the Buccaneer Bunnies. Unfortunately, Henry prefers reading to pirating despite his father's pressure to participate in the pirate life. Once a storm arrives, Henry's reading soon proves its worth. A large portion of the fun in this titles comes from the details - lots of pirate talk and tidbits, but also several references that older readers and parents might recognize such as "Rabbitson Crusoe" and the tatoo of a cabbage named Beatrix on Calico Jack Rabbit's arm. Henry and the Buccaneer Bunnies is a funny, light read which also promotes reading and libraries. "
