Synopsis

Meet the Pirates by Liz Miles

You can learn a lot from what archaeologists and historians have uncovered about the past, but what would the people who actually lived at the time be able to tell you? Meet the Pirates does just that! This book will transport you to a pirate ship where you will meet all kinds of people from all walks of life. From the cabin boy to the captain and all the salty sea-dogs in between, they will answer you questions and give you the inside information of what it may have been like to live at this time, before you are then transported back to your own era. Encounters with the Past is a brilliant series designed to shine a light on historical ideas about subjects such as medicine, science, religion, food, magic and society. Perfect for readers aged 9-11 who want a more personal account of these fascinating times.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!
