Discovering Pirates by Richard Platt
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


"Discovering Pirates" is an authoritative book about pirates for 7-11 year olds. It focuses on the golden age of piracy when notorious figures such as Blackbeard and Captain Kidd plundered treasure ships in the Spanish Main. In 13 superbly illustrated sections the book looks at all aspects of piracy, from who the pirates were and what they did, to their ships and weapons, their lore and language, their way of life, the way they shared and spent their booty, how they treated their hapless victims (by making them walk the plank for example), and the fate that awaited them if they were unlucky enough to be captured by the Royal Navy. Along the bottom of each spread is a story told in verse about a gang of blood-thirsty cut-throats, their search for plunder and the grisly fate awaiting them!
