Captain Flinn and the Pirate Dinosaurs: Missing Treasure!

The Story: Flinn loves dinosaurs and is excited when Miss Pie takes his class to the museum to see the dinosaur bones. When the guide reveals that pirate treasure has been stolen from the museum, Flinn is on the case with his friends Violet, Pearl, and Tom.They follow the trail through the museum closet and onto a pirate ship. They discover that the treasure was stolen by Gordon Gurglegutts, who was reclaiming the treasure of his grandfather. Unfortunately, he has recently been pirate dinosaurs! The fearless foursome set off to have an adventure and recover the treasure! 

Mama opines: I like so many things about this book and the other books in the series. I'm learning new things about dinosaurs myself (like how to pronounce giganotosaurus). I also like how they are pirates and they fight, but no one seems to really get hurt. I know that little boys like to play fight and read about fighting, but I still want to keep it preschool appropriate. And have I mentioned the awesome illustrations? Flinn is a lot of fun for little boys and their mommies. 

Thoughts from David: Well, I like it because it has dinosaurs. And because Flinn is a good fighter!
Favorite part: When he ties up the dinosaurs!
