Whew! "The Word Pirates" is quite a book, with Bumblebirds who steal words "fresh off the page" to feed the pirates.
*
" Captain Rottingbones ate long chewy words, like antidisestablishmentarianism. His crew liked short crunchy words like hop, fib, pop and zip. With milk."
*
Of course with words being stolen, stories don't make much sense.
The Word Pirates is a gem of words and bright busy pictures!

5 Stars for a fun book that celebrates words that make our beloved books.
