About this title

Synopsis:

It's the ultimate showdown, Our Heroic-ish Pirates versus Those Lousy Vikings to decide the fate of a kingdom! Who will be the victorious, bearded, giant-hat-wearing masters of the sea? Their weapons of choice? BAKED GOODS! Deliciously-Evil Viking Pie, a threat to their homemade pirate cookies, forces Captain Scurvybeard and crew to embark on a quest to find the ultimate pastry: The long lost CUPCAKES OF DOOM! It gets rather silly.

From Booklist:

The cookie-loving pirates from previousYARG! efforts return as the featured players in this unrelentingly pun- and gag-filled adventure. Escaping from a desert island, the pirates tackle everything from the justice system and going into business to relationships and dealing with mothers (all in an age-appropriate fashion, of course) as they trade blows and jokes with a bunch of rather hoity-toity Vikings. The point here is not serious social commentary but rather to offer as many jokes per page (and panel, and word balloon) as possible. While some will fly over the heads of the intended readership, it hardly matters given their extraordinary density. It’s notable that if manga is the reigning graphic format art style for young adults these days, the style for younger readers is quickly settling upon what is on display here—a lighthearted, animation-inspired use of cartoon figures, digital colors, and rough backgrounds—so that the transition from reading to television and back is becoming disturbingly seamless. Grades 4-6. --Jesse Karp
