Sam Silver, Undercover Pirate 1 : Skeleton Island by Jan Burchett, Sara Vogler, Leo Hartas
How to become an Undercover Pirate...
1) Have a pirate captain as your ancient ancestor;
2) Find a message in a bottle and a magic gold doubloon;
3) Get whisked back in time to join a pirate crew;
4)When you get home DON'T TELL ANYONE. Remember - you're undercover!
Sam Silver lives near the sea and enjoys beach-combing for pirate treasures. When he finds an ancient message in a bottle he thinks it will make a great new relic for his collection, but the bottle holds a very special secret... Inside is a gold doubloon which whisks Sam back in time to 1705. Suddenly he's on board a pirate ship - the Sea Wolf - surrounded by her fearsome captain and crew and sailing the Caribbean Sea. If Sam can't think of a very good reason why they should keep him alive, he'll be forced to walk the plank!
'I absolutely loved this. I read it so quickly that I went straight back to the beginning to start again when I had finished. The story is great. Sam lives by the sea and loves beach combing. He finds a message in a bottle, rubs some pirate gold and goes back in time and joins the pirates hundreds of years ago in the Caribbean. There is loads of action and I was sad when the book ended. Can't wait for the next one. I will tell my friends and teacher about the book.' Theo, 7
