Eddie, Howie, Liza, and Melody are very suspicious of their new boating instructor Captain Teach. Is he really a pirate? Captain Blackbeard Edward TEACH to be exact? Or is he just a VERY strict boating instructor? After they find a treasure map in his cabin theyíre not so sure he is just a boating instructor. But they still have one thing to consider. Pirates donít wear pink sunglasses!
I loved the book Pirates Donít Wear Pink Sunglasses because the characters are very adventurous. They go snooping in their boating instructorís cabin and find a treasure map. They go looking for the treasure, too. I loved the illustrations because they are very realistic and they capture the scene really well even though they are black and white. The characters remind me of myself when I was little because I was always snooping around too .
I recommend this book to 1-3 graders because it has humor 1-3 graders will understand.
