Coming on March 22, 2011

Mean Mo and Bad Bart, the two strong and funny characters Mary Quattlebaum created, grabbed me immediately, when I first read this manuscript. 

excerpt from the Publishers Weekly review: 

Pirate Vs. Pirate: The terrific Tale of a Big, Blustery Maritime Match
Mary Quattlebaum, illus. by Alexandra Boiger, Disney-Hyperion

  ...Boiger's (The Monster Princess) extravagant spreads are filled with billowy curves--foamy waves, full sails, and the bellies of Bad Bart's henchmen. Their romantic aesthetic, as a counterpoint to Quattlebaum's (Winter Friends) piratical hijinks, is central to the story's charm. An all-around winner.
