I liked the author because she is creative. I think the author is creative because after every chapter in the book she puts a quote from Jolly Rogerís Guide to Life. Not a lot of authorís do that. An example is after chapter 1 it said ďIf ye be seeking adventure, mateys, the only place to look be the high seas! From Jolly Rogerís Guide to Life by I.C Waters.Ē I learned that even though someone is mean to you doesnít mean you have to be mean back. When Kirk was being mean to Richie and doing all the work on the boat didnít mean Richie had to bring the submarine to the contest. My favorite part was when Humphrey was in the boat and pretended to sail. That was my favorite part because I didnít know what was going to happen next.
I recommend this book to boys and girls in second grade and up. If you like adventure, and cute animals, then you will like this book. I think you will like this book if you like authors with unique style. Humphrey is a nice, kind, and funny character who loves solving other peopleís problems. If you like that kind of character, then you will like this book. Now all you have to do is. . . READ!
