5.0 out of 5 stars GREAT BOOK FOR YOUNG READERS 9 Nov. 2010
By Margaux Paschke - Published on
Format: Hardcover
My son read this book in one sitting and often stopped to read bits of it aloud to me. I learned a lot of facts about pirates (their biscuits are called hardtack for one) and details about some famous ones. I liked how it contained factual information and presented it in a way that encouraged my son to read on.

The favorite part was about the pirate called Blackbeard and how he appeared scary but was not all bad. Blackbeard didn't kill and every man on his ship got a vote. His eventual capture by British soldiers is detailed. Nastier pirates like Yellowbeard are included but more brief.

I recommend this book to all boys but especially reluctant readers.
