Editorial Reviews

CM Magazine
"Helmer writes the relationship between Jacob and Charlotte with attention to the complexity of sibling rivalry; discussing jealousy, sharing, competition, promises and guilt...Useful as a story for character education, Helmer ensures that the children solve their own problems with little to no interference from their grandpa. New readers will enjoy the adventurous spirit of the characters, and more experienced readers will enjoy predicting what may happen next on Pirate Island."
Resource Links
"Jacob and Charlotte are relatable siblings...A fun adventure story that will be enjoyed by readers."
Southwestern Ohio Young Adult Materials Review Group
"Generously illustrated with simple pen-and-ink drawings, this easy-to-read chapter book provides appealing independent reading experience for young students."
Children's Literature - Phyllis Kennemer
A visit with Grandpa offers great adventure for Charlotte and Jacob. After a hearty breakfast of blueberry pancakes, the three boards Grandpa’s boat and head for Pirate Island. The day is perfect for treasure hunting. The siblings interact in typical brother-sister ways with a mixture of competitiveness, jealously, and kindness toward each other. Charlotte finds the first treasure--sand dollars. Jacob spots a fallen tree that resembles a pirate ship. A stone with a hole in the middle could be a spyglass. A smooth piece of driftwood serves as a cutlass. Polished pieces of glass are sea jewels. An abandoned lobster trap will fit in the d?cor of Jacob’s room. When they find an old bottle, they decide to make a treasure map to place inside. They show the places where the treasures were found. In the process, they also make up their own pirate story to share with Jack Mawdy when they eat fish and chips in his snack shack on their return. Pen-and-ink illustrations complement the action of this family adventure story. Reviewer: Phyllis Kennemer, Ph.D. AGERANGE: Ages 6 to 8.

Meet the Author

Marilyn Helmer was born in St. John's, Newfoundland, moved to New Brunswick, then to Quebec, then to Ireland, then back to Canada, all before she was five years old. Perhaps that is why she loves to travel, both in North America and abroad. Marilyn's main passion though is writing for children. She discovered a knack for storytelling at a very young age when she made up wild and creative excuses for the occasional bout of mischief. In elementary school she became an avid Nancy Drew fan. With a couple of like-minded friends, she began writing and telling her own mystery stories. But it wasn't until many years later, when she started reading to her son and daughter, that Marilyn's dream of writing for children was born. Success did not happen overnight but it did happen. Marilyn's stories, poems and articles have appeared in children's magazines and anthologies in Canada and the United States. Her published books include picturebooks, chapter books, novels, riddle books and retold fairy tales.
