An American Classic. This book is about an island ruled by pirates where the people are not allowed to use the letter O.

A great little book. I read this one to my son, which wasn't always easy when the Os were omitted from words. Very enjoyable.

Available to be checked out from the library again.

Oh, I really like this cute story and the fun pictures! And I can just imagine what a challenge reading it out loud must have been, too. :)

I'll have to look for a copy of my own.

Available for the next reader.

Thanks for sending this to me!

What a wee gem of a book. I had never even heard of it before, but was running out of books to read in Coimbra, so had a look at availables from the 1001-Library. The pictures really make the book, I enjoyed reading this, it is a quick read, but with an effective message.

Back to the 1001-Library.

I thought the concept of this book was good but I didn't really enjoy it, I certainly wouldn't have classed it as an American Classic. Good to see a 1001 library book moving around so much
Ready for another reader.
