Sam Silver: Undercover Pirate: Skeleton Island Book 1 Press Reviews

good clean fun. Perfect for little boys and maybe even some tomboy girls. And nice and short and easy to read. How refreshing is that in the run up to Christmas? * JE TOWEY * An enjoyable, pacy first book in a new series ... with plenty of exciting escapades. * PRIMARY TIMES * a great read, full of swashbuckling adventure, unlikely friendships and time-travelling mayhem. Girls and boys will love the action, fast-paced plot and large-print text, letting them easily read along for themselves. Highly recommended. * BOOKAPOET * Skeleton Island, and it's equally enjoyable sequel The Ghost Ship, are perfect stories for pirate-fixated kids aged 6 and above. * THE BOOK ZONE FOR BOYS * We are always being asked for information - fact or fiction - about pirates, so I know that this series will be hugely popular. With its fast-paced narrative and plenty of swashbuckling action, young readers will be quickly drawn into the stories and will look forward to more. * PARENTS IN TOUCH *
