Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

What do you get when you mix a fiery, red-headed girl with the high seas?Granuaile, better known as Granny O'Malley! And would she rather raid ships than learn the ways of a woman? Yes. And though a woman, would she become captain of her own crew and take to pirating and plundering every English merchant ship that dares sail by? Indeed. But Red Liz, the Queen of England, isn't going to take Granny O'Malley's filching without a fight. When she imprisons Granny's son, the pirate and the Queen come face to face — and neither feisty female is prepared for what happens next! Matt Faulkner sets readers sailing on a pirating adventure that guarantees you'll never forget the name Granny O'Malley.

Review:

"Buckling swash from first scene to last, sword at hip and long red hair blowing in the sea breezes, O'Malley cuts a decidedly heroic figure in the swirling, action-filled illustrations." Kirkus Reviews

Review:

"This is a nifty pirate story, as well as a sparkling tale of two strong women." Booklist

Synopsis:

Although a woman, Granny O'Malley becomes the captain of her own pirate ship and plunders every English merchant ship that she can. But the Queen of England aims to put a stop to it. When she imprisons Granny's son, the pirate and the Queen come face to face. Full color.
