About the Author

Ben Oliver is making up stories almost every day of the week. Thinking up exciting adventures and daring heroes, there is nothing more fulfilling for him than to put these stories into written words for others to read.

"Kitt Pirate" is a character that has been rattling around his brain for some time until he thought the story was ready to be released for others to enjoy.

The story was well developed, full of action and adventure, without being violent or gory.

Parents, teachers and homeschoolers will have a blast creating treasure maps for scavenger hunts and incorporating pirate tales and slang from history.

Captain Kitt may be young, but he surely does not lack wisdom or courage. He and his crew are seeking the treasure of Captain Snaggletooth, thanks to a map the Kitt has. After being at sea for so long, the crew finally reaches Caverock Island, home to the treasure. What further adventures await once they reach the land, and will Kitt and his crew really find the treasure?

This book is, in a word, splendid. Intended for a middle grades audience, I found the book to be a fantastic story, perfect for enticing children to read. The story was well developed, full of action and adventure, without being violent or gory. I loved the illustrations, which will really help a young reader better envision the story while reading. I thought the action moved at an appropriate pace, given that readers of this age can still be intimidated by some chapter books.

The characters were fantastic; character development in a children's book is tough. I think we learn just enough about Kitt and his crew to remain interested and invested in the story, without overwhelming they young reader with information.

Good middle grades books are hard to come by, particularly those that entice kids who are not big fans of reading. I think this book is perfect for that audience, particularly young males who would typically be more interested in video games. The fact that this book is available as an ebook might help entice skittish readers as well, allowing them a chance to get used to ebook technology.

I would be remiss if I did not add that I sincerely hope Kitt has continuing adventures. With the recent success of pirate themed movies, I think more of these books would do really well.

Format: Paperback
Kitt is the captain of a ship called the Bonito. He and his trusted crew have set sail to Caverock Island in search of Snaggletooht's Treasure. This long lost bounty has been hidden away for years. It was in Tortuga that Kitt bought the treasure map that would lead him to Captain 'Snaggletooth' Gustavo's legendary treasure. The map was a mere few pieces of copper. Kitt wondered if the treasure was real and if whether or not they could really find it.

Kitt's main objective was to find the treasure and help the very poor, especially in Hispaniola, get food, clothing and provide shelter. His intentions were honorable. Once Kitt and his crew reached the island the long path up a steep hill would prove to be exhausting. The loud shrieks from strange creatures practically scared his crew away. Giant spiders and their webs forced Kitt an his crew to dig deep to muster up courage to keep moving forward. Hidden caves in the sides of the cliff and more strange noises greet them along the way for the search of treasure. But Kitt learns about his wits when he encounters the biggest challenge of all, Marumba a giant octopus.

This is definitely a book for boys, but girls will love it as well. Young readers will enjoy the adventures of pirates looking for treasure. This quick read will have readers longing for more. Parents, teachers and homeschoolers will have a blast creating treasure maps for scavenger hunts and incorporating pirate tales and slang from history.

Format: Paperback
Kitt Pirate: Snaggletooth's Treasure By Ben Oliver is a great for children that are just beginning to read chapter books. The chapters are not overwhelming and keep the readers enticed with the illustrations. The illustrations help young readers envision the story a bit better.
Intended for a middle school grade audience, I found the book to be a wonderful story, perfect for enticing young children to read. The story was well developed, full of action and adventure, without the typical violence and gore you see with pirate adventures. The characters were wonderful; character development in a children's book is tough. The story reveals just enough about Kitt and his crew to keep the reader wanting more, without giving them too much information, which confuses a new reader.

Captain Kitt may be young, but his courage in the seas paired with his knowledge is a great asset. He and his crew are in search of the treasure of Captain Snaggletooth, thanks to a map the Kitt has. The crew finally reaches Caverock Island, home to the treasure and a very long time at sea. What adventures will Kitt and his crew face and will they actually find the treasure?? You need to read it to find out.

Good middle grades books are hard to come by, particularly those that lure kids who are not big fans of reading. I think this book is perfect for that audience, particularly young males who normally play video games and like action packed adventures, which is my 17-year-old son.

My 17 year old read this book and said, "This book is actually pretty good, and I hope they have more adventures with Kitt and his crew!"

Format: Paperback
I've been on a pirate reading kick lately. This book is geared toward the younger readers. There are plenty of illustrations to help the readers' active imaginations. I enjoyed the story a good deal. As I read, I had to remind myself that this is meant for middle grade readers. With only 125 pages, it is a little hard to get a great deal of character development, but there was plenty of action.
The story itself is told from the first person point of view (of the ship's captain). The pirates aren't your typical pirates either. There is no pillaging and plundering in this book. In fact, Captain Kitt and his crew are more like philanthropists. They seek out treasure in order to help the less fortunate. It's like Robin Hood on the high seas! The villains in the book aren't other pirates, but savage beasts of the jungle. There was a chapter full of heart pumping action involving a gigantic spider. Thankfully, it was a quick chapter. I don't do spiders. There was also an interesting take on riddles and the guardian of Snaggletooth's treasure.
Overall, this was a quick and enjoyable read. Young boys between the ages of 8-11 would enjoy this book. It would also be a great read aloud for younger kids. It's clean and full of action. Not to mention that the pirates are good hearted and clean mouthed.
