The Lovereading4Kids comment
A fabulous swash buckling collection of ten pirate tales full of the requisite adventure, daring, knavery and bloodshed. Chris Mould’s illustrations cleverly capture all the romance and menace of the pirate world as they match stories he has written himself as well as adapted excerpts from classic pirate tales such as Robert Louis Stevenson’s Treasure Island.
