Sam’s secret is…. that he can turn into a bold pirate, swashbuckling hero of the seven seas. With a boring uncle coming to visit, Sam knows he must escape – and fast! Soon he’s off on the Sea Wolf with adventures just waiting to happen. Can Sam rescue his crew mate Charlie?


Kidnapped by Jan Burchett, Sara Vogler

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! A fearsome encounter with enemy ships leads to a huge sea battle. When the smoke clears, Sam realises Charlie has vanished. Could his crewmate have been kidnapped? It's Sam Silver to the rescue!


[The series] has all the hallmarks of a good old-style adventure story, with fast-paced action that really involved young readers. PARENTS IN TOUCH I loved this book, and will be passing it on to my young cousin, as it's definitely the type of story that will get youngsters reading ... This book has pirates, and time travel. How can it be anything other than good? GIRL REPORTER BLOG
