  Six-year-old Eloise loves to dress up. Sometimes she pretends to be a princess, and sometimes she pretends to be Nanny. Today she is going to be one of her favorite things, a pirate. To get herself ready for the part Eloise dons a pairs of boots, an eye patch, a hat and a sword. Eloise’s little dog Weenie is going to be her first mate and the two of them are going to “set sail.”

  Of course their first task is to find some treasure. Nanny insists that she does not have any treasure. So does Room Service. Perhaps Chef has the treasure. Eloise sets off to find out. But, alas, Chef too insists that he does not have any treasure in his pots and pans. Dear me! Where can the treasure be hidden?

 Young pirate fans will greatly enjoy this delightful book for beginner readers. Without a doubt Eloise’s antics as a pirate are absolutely true to form and any small child will appreciate what she is up to and delight in it. A simple text which is accompanied by amusing illustrations with plenty of visual clues makes this a perfect book for children who are eager to read on their own for the first time.
