About the Book

"These swashbuckling pirate tales will captivate both parent and child alike with their clever characters and awesome adventures. A must!"
-Marcia Vaughan, author

"My children loved these stories; they are terrific read-aloud tales. The unique characters, rich descriptions, and clever twists and turns kept them enthralled. And these are pirates we're happy to have our kids emulate-strong women, courageous cabin boys, and captains who love cats."
-Nancy Morgan Barnes, M.Ed., parent and educator

Follow the daring Sally McGee who must masquerade as a boy to sail the high seas. As her journey unfolds, she encounters an infamous pirate captain, and both of their lives are changed forever. In Pirates' Revenge, Sally is forced to face the consequences of her actions and learns that pirating is not all sailing in fair winds.

In Nameless, explore a wrecked ship with the Black Doubloon's Mr. Drat, as he rescues a mysterious young Portuguese girl left for dead. Learn why she must leave her dangerous past behind in order to survive. Sail along with Mr. Drat in The Captain's Cat, and discover why Pieces of Eight is much more than the average pirate pet.

And finally, rejoin Sally as she unlocks the secrets of Sanctuary and discovers the story of Zor and Bella, who, with the help of their pet crow Ebony, fight to free their island from the magical grip of an evil sorcerer.
