Can Baltazar help them strike pay dirt before their tickets expire?

"The best part? The head pirate, Captain Redlocks, is a redheaded woman. Oh yes she is. And she captains the Cutlass, the fastest ship in the skies. Because not only men can be all swarthy and adventurous and brandish swords and wear cool black eye patches....My redheaded daughter and I think this book should immediately be made into a movie, since the stunning illustrations look like animation and the theme park tie-in is just too good for Hollywood to pass up. When it comes out, don't say I didn't tell you so.” - Cool Mom Picks
Movies and television shows have altered what captivates and entertains our kids during story time these days. Although classic stories will always make a wonderful addition to any collection, children often look for more engaging visuals and storylines. In the new children’s picture book, Baltazar and the Flying Pirates, kids step right into a fun and beautifully illustrated adventure. Baltazar, a young boy with a very imaginative mind, has a dream about pirates and their treasure, bringing readers to an amusement park on a quest to find the pirates’ hidden treasure chest despite having an incomplete map and needing to overcome different obstacles. The story looks like an animated film, and the lively drawings prove perfect for inspiring little minds. Your child will not be disappointed by this story; in fact, don’t be surprised if you get requests to read it over and over again!” - Mom Central
