This book was impossible to put down--I read it in one sitting, and I am FAR above the age-range this book is intended for. It is barrels of fun, and for younger readers, a real hoot. Not only is the book highly enjoyable and easy to read, but it is extremely well researched, making the days of piracy come alive for the reader! This book would be a perfect choice for those 'reluctant' readers, as they will be glued to the book as soon as they start. My 10-year old read it before school, during school, after school, to the point where we actually had to take it away for a short time so she could get a few other things done! Her comments were, 'This is the BEST book I've ever read!!' I recommend this book highly for kids (and their parents! :-)

I really enjoyed it! It was so good that I couldn't put it down. I liked the suspense, and the way the characters went with the story. I loved the detail, because it was like you were really there, watching the story pass by you! I could picture the pirates in my head--the spit coming down their chin and their greasy hair; what they ate--I could smell it. I even made cookies that were 'piratey' cookies (they ended up tasting like something that was dunked in sea water. Bleck!) This surpasses all the other pirate history books, because it made it fun; it was a fun way of learning about pirates and about how they had to live. I recommend this book for the adventurous type!

It's a great read. With a well researched story that will increase historical knowledge, there is also an allure to broaden the imagination.
