More About the Author

K. V. Johansen was born in Kingston, Ontario, Canada, where she developed her lifelong fascination with fantasy literature after reading The Lord of the Rings at the age of eight. Her interest in the history and languages of the Middle Ages led her to take a Master's Degree in Medieval Studies at the Centre for Medieval Studies at the University of Toronto, and a second M.A. in English Literature at McMaster University, where she wrote her thesis on Layamon's Brut, an Early Middle English epic poem. While spending most of her time writing, she retains her interest in medieval history and languages and is a member of the Tolkien Society and the Early English Text Society, as well as the SFWA and the Writers' Union of Canada. Her previous works for adults include the Sunburst-nominated Blackdog and the short story collection The Storyteller. She is also the author of two works on the history of children's fantasy literature and a number of books for children and teens, including the award-winning Warlocks of Talverdin and Torrie series. Various of her books have been translated into French, Macedonian, and Danish. Visit her online at www.kvj.ca

Teacher Review ... fun to read, but .... 18 July 2006
By Reading Teacher - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
lacked the excitment and adventure that I was hoping for. Being a teacher of fourth grade, I was excited to find a book about a young FEMALE Pirate Captain. I read it hoping to read it aloud to my class. There were abundant opportunities for adventure and excitement that just weren't brought to fruition. It was an easy read (even for 9-12 year olds), entertaining, and funny at times, but not a book I'd read aloud. I will do a Book Talk on it to my class and hope that students will chose to read it independently. The young captian is brave and decisive ... and as I said ... a girl! (It is very difficult to find a book with a strong female character.) I'll keep looking for that fiction pirate book to read-aloud ... and if it has a female lead -- all the better.
