“With his emphasis on invention over brute force, Herz eloquently models positive attitudes for young readers. . . . The dinosaurs may be extinct but let’s hope dinosaur pirates keep on sailing for arr-ternity.” —Kirkus ReviewsShiver me timbers! It's the DINOSAUR PIRATES! Meet Captain Rex and his band of buccaneers. These dinosaur pirates sail the seven seas in search of buried treasure, but whenever they hit an obstacle—like a giant shark or pea-soup fog—the crew members are quick to say they can’t overcome. To this, Captain Rex just glares with teeth bared and says, “CAN’T YE?” And, somehow, the crew always comes up with a clever solution. A delightful story about using one’s creativity and individual strengths to solve problems. It will encourage kids everywhere to think and say, “I can!”
