Pirates and Plunder by Terry Deary

‘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.
5 stars!

  1. Hi Jude,

    Thank you for that amazing review! You have completely convinced me that Pirates and Plunder is worth a read (and I think there might be a few other people in my house who would enjoy it too!). Your review really whets my appetite and I now want to find out more about what happens to Jem and Meg. And you are getting pretty brilliant at giving us a tantalising quote to make us curious about the story. Fantastic review!!

    Can’t wait to hear about the book you choose next! Happy reading!


  2. This sounds like your favourite book so far that you have reviewed for the blog. Pirate books are the best — I think one of my favourites is Pirate School — have you read it?
    Looking forward to the next review!
