The Best Book of Piratesby Barnaby Harward
Synopses & Reviews
Kids fascinated by buccaneers, corsairs, treasure maps, and pieces of eight, will find this a most seaworthy introduction to the lives of these salty scoundrels. From the legend of the gap-toothed Jolly Roger to the gritty realities of pirate life, children will discover why pirates and smugglers have been feared throughout history.
"Each topic is briefly covered in a paragraph of large-print text, supplemented by detailed captions for the numerous drawings. The colorful illustrations detail different pirate flags; a cross-section of Captain Kidd's ship, the Adventure Galley; an assortment of weapons; and plentiful scenes of pirates in action." School Library Journal
Stunning artwork depicts the lives and daredevil raids of famous pirates
such as Blackbeard, Madame Cheng, and Captain Kidd, while clever cutaways and authoritative text reveal the day-to-day life on board their ships. This is the perfect book for young swashbucklers!
