Navigators: Pirates by Peter Chrisp

Take to the seas and journey back in time to meet some of history's most terrifying characters. Daring and skulduggery were alive and kicking when Cilician pirates kidnapped Julius Caesar, when a 17th-century buccaneer cut out his victim's heart and when Blackbeard roamed the seas. Explore a pirate ship, meet fearsome female pirates and learn about modern piracy.
