    " This book is darling! It's perfect for elementary school. The chapters are an easy length and every couple of pages there's a good vocabulary word to learn. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sarah Sammis | 2/1/2014

    " The illustrations are the best part. It's cute but I'm in the mood for something else. "

    " Fun premise - bird pirates. Great adventure story. Terrific illustrations. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kristin | 1/11/2014

    " I really liked the premise of this book (Blue Jay pirate) and the illustrations. But that's just about it. The story was surprisingly dull, and it's a bit violent--it features numerous battles and deaths. The story themes of oppression and revolution did not seem age appropriate (at least for my six year old). "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Owen Curtsinger | 12/27/2013

    " Wonderfully imaginative. Similar to some of the stories of the Redwall series, but for younger audiences. "

    " This books is silly and full of adventures. I won this book in a First Reads Giveaway. The book is not only visually appealing and grabs the kids attention, but it's fun to read. Very quirky! Love it! Thank you! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Angief | 11/22/2013

    " I thought this book was full of fun and adventure. My son is just a little too young for this book at this time but I had my little cousin read it and he loved it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Traci | 9/12/2013

    " I like the idea of a flying pirate ship manned by birds. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Eugene | 7/19/2013

    " It is one of the better kids book I have read in a while. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lisa Fabiano | 6/27/2013

    " Blue Jay, the pirate captain has a fondness for eggs. When his latest treasured egg hatches, and produces a rather large bird, the fun has just begun. Wonderfully descriptive language helps readers visualize this avian pirate adventure. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Summer Fenwick | 11/6/2012

    " I thought this book was just too fun for words :) - not to mention the illustrations within really made the book come alive. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ted Mccoy | 10/25/2012

    " A middle grade fiction novel detailing the adventures of Blue Jay the Pirate, who hauls in a mysterious egg that hatches into a gosling named Gabriel, ultimately his crew into battle with nefarious crows. Takes a while to get going, but delivers an enjoyable adventure story once it does. "
