Reviewed by Michelle Robertson for Readers' Favorite "The Lost Crew" (sequel to "The Pirate Bride") was written by Ryan McKinley and illustrated by Jerry Bennett. This book is uniquely created with an adventurous, mysterious, fictionally historical story. It is appropriate for readers of all ages. Having a big family can be hard on the eldest of 13 and having young, loud, obnoxious, and forever on the go brothers is particularly so. It is almost entertainment for those around to view a big family on vacation. This is when Rachael decides to escape her family for a while and take up surf lessons. William, her surf instructor, is but 2 years older than she, and a native to the island. Rachael enjoyed her surf lessons with William that week, but little did she know this particular night's lesson would change her and his life forever. Having beautifully illustrated pages and a descriptive imaginative story line, it allows the readers to let their minds drift into the different periods of time. Historical fiction and children's books are my favorite of all to read. The genre allows the reader to understand the historical nature of what they are reading but also let their minds be drawn into the story. That is a fun and creative way to learn without knowing you are doing so. With each turn of the page and jump in storyline within each chapter of this book the reader gets a descriptive picture of what each time period and culture would have been like, from the surroundings, clothes, and even from the dialogue of persons.
