Join Sam Silver aboard the pirate ship Sea Wolf for a rip-roaring adventure on the high seas. 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:'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
