See-Through Pirates by Kelly Davis, John Malam

From Captain Hook to Blackbeard, pirates have long captured the imaginations of both children and adults. A stunning collection of tales, facts, images, and maps, this book goes behind the myths and legends with a look at the reality of life on the ocean. Two special spreads with printed, see-through acetate pages provide a window onto the pirates' greatest weapon—their ships—and the tricks they used to surprise their victims. The battles and treasure hunts that are the stuff of classic pirate adventure stories come alive with more than 120 full-color illustrations. Recommended by the Parents' Choice Foundation
