Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 5–8—Following her adventures in Hannah Pritchard: Pirate of the Revolution (2008) and Pirate Hannah Pritchard: Captured! (2009, both Enslow), 16-year-old Hannah, her friend Daniel, and Captain Dobbs arrive in their home port of Portsmouth, NH, in 1780 to hire more crew and get supplies for their next mission. Disguised as Jack, Hannah is the cook on a ship known as the Hannah, fighting for the new United States. Also docked is a privateer painted to resemble a sea monster. When Hannah and the crew set out to sea again, Dobbs reveals that their secret mission is to retrieve the chest of gold they buried before the British captured them. However, the privateer's captain, Samuel Cutter, has heard about the treasure and has no intention of letting them have it without a fight. Hannah fears the worst as they try to evade the British, succeed in the mission, and retrieve the gold. This book brings early American history to life. It wraps up with a look at the "real history behind the story," including pictures.—Sarah Polace, Cuyahoga County Public Library, Parma, OH
VOYA - Sela Dragich
Captain Hannah Pritchard is a quick-read adventure story, but it does have some problems. Many parts of the plot are unoriginal, such as buried treasure and a girl disguised as a boy. Also, certain parts of the book seem very historical, such as the slaves, but other parts, such as the dialogue, seem too modern for a historical setting. There is also not much action, but toward the end, the story gets more interesting. 2Q, 3P. Reviewer: Sela Dragich, Teen Reviewer
VOYA - Rebecca Moore
In 1777, Hannah Pritchard disguised herself as a cabin boy and went to sea after her family was massacred by enemies of the Revolution. In this third book in the series, Hannah—still passing as Jack—and her friends return to Portsmouth in 1780 after a miserable stint on a British prison ship. Their ultimate goal is to secretly return to the Carolinas to retrieve gold they buried after their original privateering ship sank. Hampering them, however, is the too-slick privateer Captain Cutter. Why is he so eager for his ship to accompany theirs on their voyage? Despite a few nice moments of description, this entry in the Historical Fiction Adventures series has many issues. For starters, Pryor fills it with awkward info-dumps about the era, mingled with didactic and politically correct declarations. Also, the episodic structure, in which many events have little or nothing to do with the main plot, does not work for an adventure story. Too often not much is happening, but at other times events occur so fast the reader has no time to feel suspense. In addition, the stereotypical characters with their wooden emotions change little through the book. Send readers with a yen for female pirates to L. A. Meyers's Bloody Jack or Tanith Lee's Piratica series instead. The book includes an afterword of historical notes, a bibliography, and related websites. Reviewer: Rebecca Moore
