ALA Booklist
For a vacation, the Moody family visits North Carolina's Okracoke Island, where Judy and Stink take part in the Pirate Island Treasure Hunt. They work together, visiting sites on the island and figuring out five clues phrased as rhyming riddles. Rivalry with another set of siblings provides mild tension, but characterization is perfunctory and the episodic story line is unexciting. Still, the pirate theme has definite appeal, and readers who enjoy wordplay and verbal sparring will find something to like here. Like the previous volume in the Judy Moody & Stink sub-series, Judy Moody & Stink: The Holly Joliday (2007), this book features many colorful illustrations.
Horn Book
A family vacation quickly turns into an adventure when Judy Moody and younger brother Stink enter a pirate treasure hunt. McDonald keeps the focus squarely on her young protagonists, tracking their successes and frustrations as they pool their resources to capture the prize. As usual, the sibling dynamic is humorously realistic; fans of previous Moody escapades will not be disappointed.

Gr 13 It's a pirate-themed holiday for Judy and younger brother Stink as the Moody family makes their way to historic Ocracoke Island, home of Blackbeard. Stepping off the ferry, the siblings enthusiastically tackle a scavenger hunt organized by "Scurvy Sam," aka Cap'n Weevil. Solving each riddle leads to "pieces of eight" given by locals playing along with the contest. As Judy and Stink race around the island, two other kids seem to be hot on their heels. With a bit of ingenuity and perseverance, the Moodys manage to outwit their competition. Their joy in victory is tempered by the realization that the other kids who have been trying hard have inadvertently led them to the answers on a number of their clues. They decide to include them on their prize tripa sail around the bay on a real pirate ship. With a mix of pirate slang, silly jokes, Morse code, and tantalizing puzzles, enlivened with full-color cartoons throughout, this book is a humorous summer read.

Judy and Stink co-star in their second full-color adventure — crawling with pirates and puzzles, carbuncles and chuckles.

As soon as the Moody family drops anchor on "Artichoke" Island, they are greeted by Cap’n Weevil, a one-eyed buccaneer with a scraggly beard and a secret treasure map. Before you can say "Davy Jones’s Locker," Stink and Judy are racing across the island in search of gold. But—shiver me timbers!—they’re not the only salty dogs lookin’ for loot. Can Mad Molly O’Maggot and Scurvy Stink beat out their rivals, Tall Boy and Smart Girl? Can they find the hidden clues, crack the secret codes, and solve the tricky puzzles before time runs out? Aaarrr!
