My boys were so excited the day that these two fun and talented authors came to their school, I knew I wanted to review one of their books on MommaReads. I contacted them and they were gracious enough to send us not only the book A Pirate’s Quest, but also the video, The Riddle in a Bottle, that goes along with it.

The Riddle in a Bottle is a funny, witty and educational film that covers everything from currents, to the water cycle, to ocean and pond life. Your kids will not only love this movie, they will learn and laugh out loud at the cute and funny animal voices all while they are trying to solve a riddle.

The book, A Pirate’s Quest, is about a pirate who has lost his peg leg in a lake. He realizes that the same currents that took his leg could also help him find it, so he travels through lakes, streams and oceans vowing to never give up until he does find it. I would recommend watching the movie first since it does a great job of explaining how water moves on the earth and then reading the book. This movie and book are fantastic together. Two thumbs up!
