  • Everything I Know About Pirates*one of Newsweek's "Books of Wonder" for 2000:

    "Will shiver the timbers and tickle the funny-bones of those salts, both young and old, with a penchant for silliness. * The jaunty cartoon illustrations raise the threshold for zaniness. Boisterous fun from fore to aft."
    *Publishers Weekly

    R "Lichtenheld's humor goes beyond his text to take up residence in his mixed-media cartoons, where captions and labeling act as punchlines for these silly sea-jokes, mad buccaneers, and piratical accoutrements."
    *Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books, recommended book

    "Ingenious."
    *Kirkus

    "The tongue-in-cheek humor will appeal to those who like to be grossed out."
    *School Library Journal

    "Droll* funny* suitably exaggerated boy fantasy."
    *Booklist

    "Lichtenheld's hilarious illustrations and outrageous nonsense make for a delicious reading experience for swashbucklers of all ages."
