When it comes to the flaps there are a lot on each page and, generally, they're pretty interesting. The only real downside is how difficult they are to open the first time.
Overall very interesting and worth buying - if you're into pirates of course.
I think some of the low scoring reviews of this book are overly harsh. It's depicting a brief history of pirates - they didn't sit around drinking tea! To make the presumption that the book will be suitable for younger children simply because there are flaps to open, frankly, boggles my mind. Book content should be treated like film content: viewed by a parent/responsible adult first so an appropriate decision can be made about its suitability for the recipient. Also, the product description/review on Amazon states "perfectly pitched for Key Stage 2" i.e. 7 to 11 years old. To that end, I would agree with another reviewer's point that this may be best purchased by the parent as opposed to given as a gift (unless it is known that it will be received without criticism).
History was violent, as is the world today. How people choose to explain that to their children - and at what age - is their own business.
