      Like most children, my daughter is fascinated by both dinosaurs and pirates so a book that has Pirate Dinosaurs was certain to catch her eye Along with, Captain Flinn and the Pirate Dinosaurs Missing Treasure and Captain Flinn and the Pirate Dinosaurs Magic Cutlass this book made up the Story Treasure Chest compilation.All three books start off with Flinn and his friends at school or on a school trip when, through natural curiosity they get warped into a world where Pirate Dinosaurs rule the sea [...]

      This is an excellent book that is about a boy named Flynn who discovers a pirate who seeks helps to get his pirate ship back from dinosaurs who are pirates, they all go on a swashbuckling adventure to defeat the great dinosaur pirates.I used this book in a year 1 class and the kids loved it, anything with dinosaurs would get the kids motivated and completely engaged We spent a week in literacy on this book from creating a fantasy setting to dressing up as pirates an using this theme in our assem [...]

      Class read 12.04.16 I think I enjoyed it than my class didMy class found some of the vocabulary difficult e.g cutlass and thought it was a bit strange that they left the school closet and ended up finding pirates They found that very confusing.There were opportunities for inference questions but my class were definitely not ready in year one for this at all There were some children, who have strong English, enjoyed this but I think children, who struggle, as a result of EAL, I felt struggled Th [...]

      PIRATES AND DINOSAURS It s like the Reese s Peanut Butter Cups of books It was so popular at our house that one of Boy Detective s school teachers asked to borrow it Truth be told, I was laughing as much as the kids Well of course Captain Stubble is crying because dinosaurs stole his pirate ship And of course Flinn and his school friends, who find the Captain in the back of their classroom s supply closet, are the only ones who can help What doesn t make sense about that The art is kid like to r [...]

      Another wonderful book to read aloud full of lovely fun words BASH and CRASH and SMASH Also, it includes awesomely threatening phrases such as, And I ll eat you up with MUCH TOO MUCH KETCHUP It is a silly, thrilling adventure featuring two of my boys favorite elements, pirates AND dinosaurs The illustrations are great as well lovely collages with lettering in varied sizes for emphasis and that travels all over the page as the story takes it.

    11. Kristen

      This was a cute book The story was really engaging and fun to read out loud It had a lot of action and bright colorful images My daughter really liked when the Dinosaurs showed up and she roared every time a dino roared I was disappointed that the dinos weren t in the story for very long This story is very much along the lines of Narnia, where the enter this amazing world through a closet, and then come back through I enjoyed it and so did my 1.5 year old daughter.

    12. Daya B

      I loved reading this book I read it in nursery and the children loved it too It worked well in my lesson as we were learning and sea and travelling The best bit was when the dinosaurs showed his terrible teeth and his terrible claws and his terrible a raws The children all did the actions and that went on for days.

    13. Madison

      Flinn runs out of markers to color his dinosaurs, so he is sent to the supply closet In the closet he runs into a pirate whose boat has been stolen Flinn must go on a grand adventure to rescue the captain s ship and his crew My son loved the fact that this book had dinosaurs and pirates He loved the silly illustrations and begged me to read the book repeatedly.

    14. Kara

      This book is such an egregious Lauren Child ripoff that I sometimes feel a little twinge of guilt or something when reading it out loud But that said, this is a good picture book with one of the best little boy themes I know of, and it gets the kids so excited they can barely contain themselves Featuring a T.Rex pirate captain and several underused plant eating dinosaurs as the ship s crew.

    15. Magila

      4.5Yes I was sucked in by a book about a kid and pirates and dinosaurs It s cliche And I ate it up It was just so fun Plus, the art was colorful and entertaining The picture with everyone in the pirate ship near the end could be a poster Boys will love this The author even integrated some girl pirates into the mix Very recommended.

    16. Tess North

      This is an imaginative book about a child fighting pirates It begins with Flinn searching his schoolroom closet for markers, inside he meets a sobbing pirate who needs help getting his ship, Acorn, back From there, Flinn and his friends, magically fall into the high seas on an adventure to re claim the pirates lost ship Well illustrated and a great adventure for younger readers.

    17. Danie P.

      Great for older readers, preschool age, who enjoy a story that is a bit involved Flinn is asked to go into the supply cabinet at school to retrieve markers he encounters a crying pirate who s ship has been stolen Flinn agrees and so does his school friends They start on an adventure to retrieve Captain Stubble s ship from evil Pirate Dinosaurs

    18. Katherine

      VERY VEry cute book This is a great book for younger boys who love to imagine and get lost in their heads about what they truly love A wonderful book for doing a pirate accent which is always so much fun can t wait to read it to a class full of little ones

    19. Lara

      Really fun book with great illustrations I was thinking about reading it for group story time, but I think it s a little too long for that I can see it being a really entertaining one to read out loud one on one though

    20. Krystyn

      We loved this one Super cute and creative story that reads well and is completely enjoyable The combination of pirates and dinosaurs is perfect for my 4yo son right now He doesn t want to return this one to the library

    21. Malika J.

      This book contains two favorite topics of many children pirates AND dinosaurs I would use this book as inspiration for creative writing It takes an ordinary setting school that children have experience with and takes it into a whole new setting.

    22. Melissa

    24. Kathryn Bergeron

      I didn t love this book as much as I had hoped that I would Pirate Dinosaurs How could you make that not great

    27. Amy

      This was a fine book My nephew liked it, but my niece has gotten too old for stories involving talking dinosaurs She informed me that she only likes books in which she can learn about real dinosaurs now, not books with talking ones Noted I checked this book out for my nephew than for my niece, though, He liked Captain Flinn and the Pirate Dinosaurs, but he knew on literally the first page that the dinosaurs were going to become real in Flinn s world There was enough action in this book to keep [...]
