Class Three at Sea by Julia Jarman illustrated by Lynne Chapman

Class Three at Sea is a tale about a group of school children who are going on a boat ride and run into a little trouble along the way. While the children are paying attention to the many kinds of sea life and donkeys, they fail to notice a group of gross pirates coming their way. No one notices as the pirates board the ship and start grabbing children. Will the children prevail, or will the pirates win in the end?
This book kind of freaked me out. I didn't like how the pirates literally threatened the captain of the boat with the lives of small children. I did like how the animals came to the children's rescue and the way the story ends. This book may be a little scary for small children, especially when one pirate threatens to kill the children.
