Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 2-4-Faulkner relates the story of the legendary Irish pirate Granuaile ("Granny") O'Malley. He describes her early years, when her father's fishing boat and occasional plundering of English merchant vessels held more appeal than her mother's kitchen; her first marriage; and her eventual command of her father's ship. He relates how her exploits angered Queen Elizabeth, who had her declared an outlaw, and the birth of her son, Toby, and his eventual capture while attacking an English ship. The climax of the story comes when Granny travels to London to bargain for Toby's life, and the pirate and the monarch recognize in one another "a woman of consequence." The gouache cartoon illustrations feature people with exaggerated facial expressions and body postures, lending an air of melodrama to his version of history. Emily Arnold McCully's The Pirate Queen (Putnam, 1995) is more complex in terms of the writing style, the breadth of historical background provided, and the characterization of O'Malley. Faulkner's version is a serviceable introduction to the legend of this fascinating woman, but it's an additional purchase for those already owning McCully's book.-Grace Oliff, Ann Blanche Smith School, Hillsdale, NJ Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
Embroidering his first-person historical tale a bit ("It's the way of storytelling," says he in a closing note), Faulkner recounts the exploits of fierce Irish pirate Granuaile (more often known as Grace, or Grania) O'Malley, from birth, through early buccaneering, to a climactic, intrepid face-off with fiery Queen Elizabeth-here dubbed "Red Liz"-after her piratical son's capture. Buckling swash from first scene to last, sword at hip and long red hair blowing in the sea breezes, O'Malley cuts a decidedly heroic figure in the swirling, action-filled illustrations-as does the differently clad but equally dominant (and carrot-topped) Elizabeth. The details may differ, but this rendition is just as stirring as Emily Arnold McCully's The Pirate Queen (1995), and will leave readers awash in admiration for its self-assured narrator.
