Synopsis

Nasty Pirates by Fiona MacDonald

Whether it's a Viking pirate wielding axe and shield or Irish duo Anne Boony and Mary Read in cunning disguise, you know you're in trouble if they're in this book. Top Ten Nasty Pirates features a wide variety of cutthroats and vagabonds from all across the world. You can learn about their amazing boats, their fearsome flags and their fierce weapons. You can hear terrible tales of dastardly deeds and discover that there's many a fate worse than walking the plank! Captions and speech bubbles bring the illustrations to life while 'Vital Statistics' fact boxes fill you in on all the details. It features a full glossary and index, which backs up the scientific and historical information found within the book.
