“Parson’s humorous artwork is full of seafaring details and is as colorful as Jones’s pirate vernacular. This adventure will please pirate-loving listeners and has the added bonus of a subtle message that a true leader puts in the work first.”—School Library Journal
“Youngsters might recognize themselves in Hugh, who overlooks his own leadership abilities, and this maritime romp is an entertaining way to deliver an empowering message.”—Booklist
“A job opening on a jolly pirate ship turns out to be unexpectedly hard to fill. . . . [One character] sapiently suggests ’You’ll need one who / will lead your crew / and not just look the part’. . . . A point worth pondering.”—Kirkus Reviews
