 About The Book

Poe is a fish with the body of a little girl and far too much purple hair! As a purple-headed pirate princess Poe escapes Ralph the shark, rescues her fellow fish from fishermen, and proves that she can swim just as fast as any fish, even if she does look like a little girl. Includes seven original oil paintings by world-class artist, Ryan A. Pratt.

So exciting to meet these cool guys, author-illustrator, at the book fair.

My Review

This is a short book with about 24 pages; very nice illustrations. It's a great story with a cute main character named Poe who is a fish. I just love her long purple hair and she looks just like a girl. Poe meets up with an unfriendly shark named Ralph. The story line moves along nicely with Poe's long hair getting tangled,  escaping unfriendly fish and landing on a Pirate Boat. From this point on, you get a sense of many more adventures to come, especially Poe helping her family. I was particularly interested in Sean's writing style. He did a fine job with Poe Princess of Pirates. 
**** stars!
