Stunningly produced, Pirateology is a treasure trove of information, packed with everything you could want to know about pirates. It’s definitely an adventure not to be missed. Every page of the book is crammed full of fascinating facts told in interesting and different ways. Open flaps, lift out facsimile documents including letters and a treasure map, handle a swatch of a pirate flag, discover what’s in the gold glitter pouches and read stories about real pirates from the past. All of this is possible and is guaranteed to provide hours of endless fun for readers – equally accessible to children and adults - time and time again as well as providing a genuine source of information. Why not take a look at the other title in the Pirateology series Pirateology Handbook? Also available in the 'Ology' series are Dragonology, Monsterology, Wizardology, and Mythology.

Synopsis

Pirateology by Dugald Steer

Very much in the style of Templar's groundbreaking "Dragonology", "Piratology" is the 1720 work of Captain William Lubber, Pirate Hunter General to the Admiralty, and contains a similar variety of recreations and novelties, such as a real compass set into the cover, a hidden treasure map, a working sun-dial, a page of foiled, embossed doubloons and pieces of eight and much more. Lubber is also hot on the trail of wicked pirate Arabella Drummond, her cut-throat crew of sea dogs and her ship's cat, the redoubtable Mr. Teach. "Pirateology" follows the enormously successful "Dragonology", "Egyptology" and Wizardology", which have each sold over one million copies worldwide.

Dugald A. Steer was born in 1965 and lives in Surrey. His love of books and reading led him to study English Literature and Philosophy at Bristol University where he was an avid contributor to the Poetry Society Magazine. After stints working for Friends of the Earth and the Duchy of Lancaster Office, Dugald trained to teach English and spent the next five years in Spain, living in Galicia and Andalucia, writing in his spare time.

Dugald Steer now works as a freelance author for Templar Publishing, for whom he worked as an inhouse writer and editor for ten years. He has written a large number of books, including Mythical Mazes, Scary Fairies, An Accidental Christmas, Just One More Story and The Night Tiger among others. He has also made contributions to many of Templar’s best known series’, including Maurice Pledger’s Peek and Find series, and Derek Matthews’ highly successful Happy Snappy® series, for which he has written many books. He has edited many other books, has created Picture This... and Alphabet with Alison Jay and has also written The Toys’ Easter Surprise and the Little Mouse series. Dugald has wrote the handbook How to Be a Knight which he recently followed up with How to be an Explorer.
