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.
