Milo and the Pirate Sisters The Milo Adventures by Mary Arrigan

When ghostly Mr Lewis has to leave his cosy home in the castle, Milo and Shane help set him up in a local ruined mill. However, the mill is haunted by two 'lady ghosts', daughters of Granuaile's pirate cousin. Little do the boys realise the danger this puts them in, and the trouble it will cause for themselves - and this time Mr Lewis can't help them. 'this exciting supernatural adventure has great humour, pace and cliffhangers that will keep young readers turning the pages and looking forward to more in the series' Children's Books Ireland on Milo and One Dead Angry Druid 'a wonderful story ...a cracking read' Inis Magazine on Milo and One Dead Angry Druid

Reviews

funny adventure with great characters -- Books Ireland Milo and Shane make for very relatable protagonists as they are just two normal boys trying to do the right thing - but not necessarily feeling brave about it! For us, the real hero of this story is the friendship and loyalty displayed between the two boys who are truly there for each other no matter what wacky situation they find themselves in ... These are great books for young readers, with easy to follow language, engaging storylines and believable protagonists. It's also a brilliant book to get young boys into reading, as Milo and Shane are characters that most will relate to and understand. Like many boys, Milo and Shane seem to have a knack for finding trouble - even when they're not looking for it! -- LeabharLove the language and the story and your own imagination blend and react and fizz with life and possibility ... that's the holy grail for readers of all ages -- Sunday Independent well-paced ... quirky -- CBI Recommended Reads Guide 2014 It is enjoyable to read about boys that are the same age as me. It is exciting and interesting and you want to know what happens next! Aijay, 3rds Class, Limerick -- seomraranga.com this is the third in a pacy adventure series which keeps readers hooked throughout - and wanting more ... the characters are well drawn and true to life and the story is exciting -- parentsintouch.co.uk
