Sam Silver, Undercover Pirate 2 : The Ghost Ship by Jan Burchett, Sara Vogler, Leo Hartas
  

The Lovereading4Kids comment

A ghostly piratical adventure with thrills, spills and chills! This is the second in a fantastic new series that combines undercover adventure, time-travelling, treasure hunting and swashbuckling exploits. Everything a 7+ year old is looking for in a book.

But don't just take our word for it. A 7 year old boy was lucky enough to get a sneak preview of the first one before it was published and this is what he said:

'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

New adventures for Sam Silver are scheduled throughout 2012 and 2013. To keep abreast of this publishing click here.

Pirate adventurers will be needing a fine sea-worthy flag and a map ! Click here and here for some activity sheets...
