Molly Rogers to the Rescue Reader Reviews

Molly Rogers to the Rescue

Fern Tolley

Watch out, Pirates! Better not stay... Molly Rogers is on her way!

Cornelia Funke is back with another swashbuckling adventure in the form of Molly Rogers! First introduced in Molly Rogers Pirate Girl, the fearless and feisty Molly, and her mum, Barbarous Bertha, are on a new high seas mission to save Red Swallow Island and all its animals and treasure from the ferocious Captain Firebeard. But thieves, greedy pirates and mischief-makers are no match for the famous Molly Rogers and children will laugh-out-loud as she calls out for a friend or two to stop Firebeard in his tracks!

Bursting with bright illustrations and brilliant characters, this book is perfect for those little readers with the growing confidence to tackle some short but challenging chapters. Encouragingly spread out with a chunky, friendly format, Molly Rogers to the Rescue will be enjoyed by both girls and boys embarking on a lifelong journey through the wonders of books and stories.

Matilda Garey

A great book about Molly and her mum going to Monkey Skull Island and defeating pirates.

It was a great book. In the story, Molly and her mum rescue a man from sharks. He lives on Monkey Skull Island and loves animals. Pirates attack the island to get the treasure. Molly, the man, and the animals work together to defeat the pirates. I thought the jokes were very funny. I really liked the names of the island and characters. I wished there were more crew members in the story because then it would be more exciting. I liked the adjectives and the descriptions of the people and the island. I really liked the part about the Kraken, it was both exciting and funny. Firebeard, the pirate captain, should've said where his child prisoners were from but other than that it was amazing.

I would give this book 5 out of 5 stars.
