This is the first in a fantastic new series that we guarantee will get even the most reluctant reader reading! It combines everything that boys and girls aged 7+ will love including time-travelling, treasure hunting and swashbuckling adventure. Join Sam Silver aboard the pirate ship Sea Wolf for a rip-roaring adventure on the high seas. Can Sam lead the crew to buried treasure, or will he be forced to walk the plank?
But don't just take our word for it. A 7 year old boy was lucky enough to get a sneak preview of the first one and this is what he said:

How to become an Undercover Pirate...
1) Have a pirate captain as your ancient ancestor;
2) Find a message in a bottle and a magic gold doubloon;
3) Get whisked back in time to join a pirate crew;
4)When you get home DON'T TELL ANYONE. Remember - you're undercover!
Sam Silver lives near the sea and enjoys beach-combing for pirate treasures. When he finds an ancient message in a bottle he thinks it will make a great new relic for his collection, but the bottle holds a very special secret... Inside is a gold doubloon which whisks Sam back in time to 1705. Suddenly he's on board a pirate ship - the Sea Wolf - surrounded by her fearsome captain and crew and sailing the Caribbean Sea. If Sam can't think of a very good reason why they should keep him alive, he'll be forced to walk the plank!
'I absolutely loved this. I read it so quickly that I went straight back to the beginning to start again when I had finished. The story is great. Sam lives by the sea and loves beach combing. He finds a message in a bottle, rubs some pirate gold and goes back in time and joins the pirates hundreds of years ago in the Caribbean. There is loads of action and I was sad when the book ended. Can't wait for the next one. I will tell my friends and teacher about the book.' Theo, 7
