      I like this book because the dread crew [a group of land pirates]learn that to get things you want you don't have to steal them you can just be nice and make friends

      This was a book that sang and snorted, lilted and tripped, spun in a circle with joy and a great slosh of sluggy mud. It was just such a book. Unexpected, inventive and full of delicious words.'The Dread Crew' is the tale of a boy, a pirate tracker, and the crew of junk-hunting pirates who hurtle through the Nova Scotia backwoods in an enormous wooden pirate ship, the barrow. Kate Inglis is a marvelous writer; she paints the landscape of her beloved homeland with fearsome talent; she crafts sent [...]

      Open this book, and be dropped into a world of adventurers and junk-purveyers, of the sweet high stink of old gumboots and slug-trail wine.Kate Inglis has created a yarn to stand the tests of time and many readings - clever enough to snare youngsters but enthrall adults, and leave them thinking during that next walk in the woods"Was that.a pirate?"

      I can't say it better than Jim said it here, but I will say that Kate Inglis is a ridiculously talented prose writer, and I love that she doesn't shy from bringing such intricate language to a book for children. Underneath the delicious prose and the completely disgusting portrayal of the roughest band of pirates you'll ever know, the two messages at the core of The Dread Crew are two of my favorites in life:1. You'll catch more flies with honey than with vinegar.2. It's the chaos, the unexpecte [...]

      This is a magical story and Inglis has created a world of genuine wonder. I was enthralled with the fanciful and often hilarious characters, the romance of the location, and the originality of the adventure itself. Inglis writes in a timeless style that harkens back to a hard-to-pin-down bygone era, but is at the same time completely new and fresh feeling. The effect is pure wonder: I was often left smiling and I imagined reading this story on a hot, hazy August day beneath a shady tree. Or a ha [...]

      Loved this one. As a first novel, there are a few spots that could be smoothed out, and a few necessary commas are missing. But the greatness of this book can be summed up from a paragraph from page 41: "Jo told the captain the secret of his life, the thing that every single one of his adventures had taught him: that being nice is always more profitable than being nasty. That helping other people, and working hard, and having clever ideas and a cheerful disposition make people like having you ar [...]

      Someone else mentioned in their review (Sara Gilbert, I think?) that The Dread Crew is "full of delicious words." I think that's a perfect way to describe this book, and why I enjoyed it as much as I did. Kate just has such a captivating style and voice. Her writing (and this book) is also full of delicious sounds and scents and scenes I could see unfolding brilliantly in front of me. I also think the hardcover illustrated edition is definitely worth the additional cost. The illustrations are wo [...]

      The premise is strong: a wannabe pirate tracker, exercising a vivid imagination ("boredom, the mother of excitement"), and newspaper headlines of sundry crimes committed by hooligans.The writing is of literary quality, suitable for ten-to-twelve-year olds who are advanced readers. Younger children will enjoy the story and its pirate talk, authentic dialect, and entertaining vernacular if it is read to them in a lively voice. The illustrations of pirates on the front cover and the end papers are [...]

      A wonderful, slime-encrusted romp. Full of the best kind of magic, the raunchiest kind of fun. Makes me want to pack up and move to Nova Scotia, if only for movie night at the Stewart's. I have respectfully covered my copy in gobs of hummus, marmalade and snail snot. Highly recommended.

    • Amy Blum says:

      I loved the book and concur with other reviewers that a hundred or so more pages would have been fine with me. I hope this indicates that Kate is working on sequels to give us more of these wonderous characters!

    • Tabitha says:

      This first book by Kate Inglis is aimed at a younger crowd, but is an absolutely delightful read for all ages. Her novel take on pirates weaves an unconventional story about humanity, aging, exploration, and environmentalism. Fantastic!

    • Monique says:

      Delightful. A raucous, romping tale for boys and girls, and adults who still remember being a kid.

    • Virginia says:

      rambunctious, irreverant, silly and fun, with a good story:) In the Prirates Vs Wereducks debate, I admit i fall on the side of wereducks, but it is a close race;P

    • Angella says:

      Immensely entertaining. It's filed under ages 9-12 in our local Chapters but I'm far older than that and had a hard time putting it down.

    • Christine says:

      Absolute magic.
