{Quentin’s Problem: Misty Baker}

{Synopsis} – What’s a pirate student to do when he must pass the Piratish Exam, but he can’t say “Arrr”? Quentin the Quick must figure out a clever way to pass the test, so he comes up with a fantastic, wonderful, crazy idea. It’s not the truth, but it’s not exactly a lie…

But it backfires, and now Quentin must walk the plank. Hungry sharks wait below, ready to feast on a pirate lunch. Can Quentin save his skin and his pride before he becomes a shark snack?

{My thoughts} – Quentin the Quick is a young pirate that is about to be taking his Piratish Exam. He is able to do all the things required of him being a young studying pirate except say the word “ARRRR!!!!” Quentin needs to figure out just what it is that he is going to do when it comes to this specific point in his exam. He comes up with a plan but it doesn’t completely work in his favor.

I really enjoyed reading this book. It had really nice graphics that go soundly with the words written on it’s pages. I also liked that this book had a moral. I always enjoy reading children’s books that have true morals. In this case it is that every one has problems doing something and eventually it is important to ask for help sooner, rather then later. Quentin may have waited awhile before he had asked for help but after he did it didn’t take him long to say “Arrr!!!” like all the other pirates and pirate students.

I look forward to reading this book with my son soon. I am sure that he will enjoy it as much as I have and that it will provoke his curiosity. I love it when books I read to my children cause them to ask me tons of questions and I believe that this is going to be one of those books. This book helps children to face the fear of failure head on and shows them that they can successfully overcome it if they aren’t afraid to ask for help in doing so.

Final Conclusion: 5 Star Rating.
