"BATH TIME!" calls out the pirate mommy. "ARGHHH!" answer her little pirates. It's time to walk the plank for these two pirate pretenders. To the refrain of "Yo ho, yo ho, it's off to the bath we go!" the pirates and their mommy make their way to a bath full of ships and suds and even a pirate rubber ducky. After all hands on deck have been soaped and swabbed, it's time for a little pirate treasure of ice cream before bedtime!
Whether bath-lovers or bath-haters, children are sure to get caught up in this spirited adventure on the high seas of the bathtub.

Jarrett J. Krosoczka is also the author/illustrator of Good Night, Monkey Boy and Baghead.From School Library Journal:
PreSchool-Grade 2-A jolly "pirate mommy" turns bath time into an excursion at sea as mounds of bubbles create a foaming main for her two sons caught up in pirate fantasies. Even their snarly rubber ducky sports a black eye patch, and the only time the boys look downcast is when they remove their headgear for a hair wash. They don't stay clean long, though, because their reward is ice cream scooped straight from cartons. The unvarying call and response of the text becomes tedious, and the vividly colored illustrations include some jarring elements-the people are almost caricatures (their faces are dominated by large mouths with lots of teeth). Still, fans of Krosoczka's Good Night, Monkey Boy (Knopf, 2001) will enjoy this title as a kind of bedtime companion piece, and it may be considered where there is a need for books with this theme. A more sustained, imaginative bath excursion can be found in Jerry Pallotta's Dory Story (Charlesbridge, 2000), and Simon Puttock's Squeaky Clean (Little, Brown, 2002) offers an exuberant and appealing family of pigs enjoying their bath-time bubbles.
