PreS-Gr 2—The search is on for the treasured Pants of Gold-gold underpants, that is. The pirates of the Black Bloomer are off to find the fabled undies. They land on a small island, but other pirates have already found the treasure. Never fear, "The captain has a cunning plan./It's clever! It's fantastic!/Grab their fancy underpants and…/CUT through the elastic!" Rhymed stanzas tell this silly story, which will elicit giggles from young listeners and readers. The bright cartoon illustrations-which are filled with funny underwear and a variety of pirates, including one female-make this title a storytime treat. Libraries with pirate fans will want to add this one because children always find underpants funny.—Angela J. Reynolds, Annapolis Valley Regional Library, Bridgetown, NS, Canada
