Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 3-6-This book belies its snappy title and cover. The introduction begins well with a stirring description of the genre and the comment, "Ghostly sea stories are filled with horror, creepiness, delight, and even humor." Unfortunately, the pacing in the actual tales is slow. The chapter on dreaded pirate ghosts only discusses two: Blackbeard and Captain Kidd. The Loch Ness monster gets barely a mention in the section titled, "Swish, Swirl, Sea Serpent." Pages on lighthouse ghosts and ghost ships are a little more informative but still dry. In the final chapter, some interesting scenarios are described and readers are prompted to create their own ghost stories. Illustrations include black-and-white photographs, drawings, and reproductions. Given its subject and length, this book may find an audience among reluctant readers but it is likely to disappoint children with a serious interest in the subject.

From Kirkus Reviews

Guiberson (Spotted Owl, 1994, etc.) ventures into Daniel Cohen territory with these riveting, if briefly told, tales of lesser-known ghosts, sea monsters, and haunted pirate treasure. She relates the lurid details with relish: Blackbeard's head was cut off and hung from the bowsprit. . . . The headless body was thrown into the sea [whereupon it] swam one time, two times, then three times around the sloop before sinking into the deep. The author intersperses photos, old prints, and her own evocative black-and-white vignettes, and finishes with five spooky scenarios suitable for developing into new tales of terror. Perfect fare for reading by flashlight. (index, extensive bibliography) (Folklore. 9-11) -- Copyright © 2000 Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved.

Format: Hardcover
Sailing superstitions, ghosts pirates, haunted lighthouses, sea monsters, even ghost ships - real of not? All good tall tales are based on a scrap of truth. Blackbeard and others now seen as ghosts actually existed. Sea monsters may be species thought to be extinct. Mostly no explanations are given for the hows; but the stories of hearing voices when no one is there, objects moved, and ships appearing in the clouds are enough for a mild creepout. The truth is even weirder - for example, Blackbeard's skull was coated with silver and used as a drinking cup by a college fraternity. Photos, pen and ink drawings, bibliography, and index are included. Teachers may use this in a number of ways but there is not enough information for long reports
