School Library Journal Review

Gr 2-4-This series is a great introduction to pirate life for young swashbucklers. The rich colors, bold graphics, and thrilling artwork will catch their attention, and the texts are manageable and engaging. The few sentences per page contain interesting tidbits of information about tools, weaponry, the pirate code, life on a ship, and famous buccaneers. The books are well organized into short chapters, and some paragraphs have their own simple subtitles, helping young readers anticipate main ideas. Highlighted terms are defined at the bottom of the pages and in the glossaries. Fact boxes offer additional intriguing nuggets. The books have a wealth of entertaining, accessible information in an eye-popping package, and readers will plunder the shelves for them again and again. (c) Copyright 2012.
