Being a pirate I've had me share of adventure and heard many a tall tale. But what I'm pullin' ye into be more thrillin' than any lit keg o'gun powder I ever had the chance to leap away from. . . .
Abandoned on his ship, the Picaroon, by his no-good bad of scoundrels with no provisions except lots and lots of jelly beans, Captain Redbeard sails off to find a new crew . . . only to have horrible, wretched nightmares. Nightmares that bring about serendipitous disasters that doom the Picaroon. Soon Redbeard finds himself shipwrecked on Fundorado Island, where boundless fantastical adventures await.

This book is a thrilling read from beginning to end. With incredible plot turns, witty and memorable characters, and incredibly in-depth sidebar features, it is a must-have for any adventure lover's library. As a former public school teacher, I have a great appreciation for the applicability of the literary features of this book for any child's learning and progress toward mastery of Reading standards, and this is a gem of a book toward that end--although they'll never know they're learning because of all the fun they'll have reading it. Do not miss 'Fundorado Island' and all of its hidden treasures!
This is one of my favorite books of all time. My teacher told us it is a good story and I think she is right. The story is great but the fact that this is Captain Redbeard's journal is even better. All the side stories and drawings and sketches make every page an adventure. Anyone who liked the first Lemony Snicket book will LOVE this one.
My brother and I just got this book last week and we have both already finished reading it. It's full of suspense and something happens on every page. We couldn't put it down. If you like stories with cool characters, lots of jokes and a lot of suspense, (or even if you just like pirates) you will REALLY LIKE this book. Hope there are others from this pirate captain. I will defintely read more.
