Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Illustrated with diagrams, treasure maps and paintings, this guide for aspiring Blackbeards includes recipes and craft projects as well as juicy historical tidbits, such as what a well-dressed female pirate wears. Ages 8-12.
Copyright 1998 Reed Business Information, Inc. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From School Library Journal

Grade 3-5?Aspiring young pirates will enjoy this potluck presentation about one of the world's oldest professions. Lincoln takes an eclectic approach to the history of piracy, covering a broad spectrum of topics?clothing, codes of conduct, flags, ships, and (of course) treasure. The book pairs factual discussions with relevant crafts and activities. For example, a section on provisions is accompanied by a recipe for "ship's biscuit" and a questionnaire on how to determine if a person has scurvy. A gruesome description of the punishments exacted on certain infamous pirates will titillate youngsters as well as make them think twice about a life of crime. "A Rogues' Gallery" at the end of the book gives brief biographies of some of the more notorious villains, including Anne Bonny and Mary Read. Black-and-white and full-color reproductions, photographs, and drawings illustrate the text. Unfortunately, neither a table of contents nor an index is included. More of a browsing item than report material, this unique British import will fascinate and delight readers.?Rosalyn Pierini, San Luis Obispo City-County Library, CA

Format: Paperback
I like this book because it teaches you how to make pirate stuff and it tells you what pirates were really like. It has lots of good pictures of their weapons, maps, flags and clothes. It also describes the different types of pirates. Errol Smith, 8, Montague,NJ

Yarr, and you can become a pirate too! I have been a degenerate menace to civilized society ever since.
This is the coolest book, every rambunctiously imaginative person should check it out.
And some of those imaginative people should write further books on becoming an intergalactic hero, knight, time traveller, robot, cowperson, musketeer, flapper, gangster, bohemian, etcetera, with similar hands on projects that result in cool props...
