‘When I was a pirate,’ the one eyed man said in a horse whisper, ‘ we sailed the seven seas!’
Pirates and Plunder is an excellent book! I was so excited to find out about the adventures of Jem and Meg Hawkwood, Royal Navy sailors aboard the warship Goliath. When the mother and son encounter merchant vessels, French warships and angry admirals, they go through life threatening situations as pirates.
I couldn’t put this book down because it was so marvellous. It was as good as a fiction book, but it has facts chucked in as well.
I recommend it to anyone who loves Horrible Histories but wants a more fiction type book by Terry Deary.
