Praise for Do Pirates Take Baths?
"Rolling motion characterizes both words and pictures in this pleasant book. Bouncy, six-line verses provide colorful, innocent answers to 13 childlike questions... Lighthearted illustrations add to the vision of jolly sea villains. Caricatures drawn with fluid lines and filled in with sunny acrylics show men in constant motion... Only when they are cozily swaying in their hammocks, dreaming of their mothers, are they still. Young children already fascinated with pirates will be pleased with the jovial picture this book paints." — School Library Journal
"This sprightly picture book gives the lowdown on those low-down varmints, pirates. Each two-page spread offers a new glimpse of their sometimes nefarious, sometimes silly activities... Whatever tricks the pirates may be up to, like capturing a rival ship, are lightly looked upon by Westcott's cheerful watercolors. They make pirating seem like lots of fun indeed." — Booklists
