Book 85 - Pirates Love Underpants #100daysofbooks (verdict: whacky fun)

Day 85 was quite a schmozzle, so we're late with the book we read, Pirates Love Underpants. That's quite a statement, I thought, and the story is just whacky. Treasure map, pirate rivalry, a skirmish, all in the name of a moral to check that your underpant elastic is functional, lest you embarrass yourself. There's one page in the middle that reverses orientation (pictured) just to keep it interesting. The whole thing reminded me somewhat of Robert DeNiro's character in the movie of Stardust. In any case, it rhymed and had big bright illustrations. Lots of fun for everyone.

Master A's verdict: Tried to turn the pages.
