The Lovereading4Kids comment

Most boys and some girls (Pirate Grace O’Malley is featured here) are mad about pirates and without doubt this is the book for them. Whilst reading the stories and admiring the wonderfully colourful illustrations they can re-enact the life and times of Pirate Grace O’Malley or of Robin Hood and the Pirates to name just two of the stories. An unabridged CD of the stories comes with the book.


Barefoot Book Of Pirates by Richard Walker

This swashbuckling collection of pirate tales is brimful with drama and adventure on the high seas. Young children will meet fierce characters such as the captain in the German tale, Kobold and the Pirates; others, like young Mochimitsu, in the Japanese tale, are friendly and funny. They will also meet the infamous lady pirate, Grace O’Malley, one of Ireland’s most feared pirates. Specially compiled for young readers, these tales are perfect for reading aloud.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!
