Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

Special Features:

  • Colorful double-page spreads
  • Informative captions and fact panels
  • Illustrated glossary and index

Review:

"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

Synopsis:

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. The Best Book of Pirates by Barnaby Howard is the perfect book for young swashbucklers!
