Staff Review: "Seven Dead Pirates"
“Libertalia. You!” Lewis can’t stop thinking about the two words that his dying Great-Granddad, whispered urgently into his ear. What do they mean? What’s even stranger is that his parents don’t even know. He guesses it may be connected somehow to Shornoway, his Great-Grandad’s sea-side, historic home. To honor the requirements of his Great-Grandad’s will, he and his family must live at Shornoway for at least 6 months, and he will occupy the mysterious, locked, top-floor tower room with a magnificent view of the sea. Lewis thinks it’s all a wonderful dream until objects in his new room start falling, noises and thumps begin behind walls, and a strange swirling mist suddenly turns into the talking ghost of the long-dead pirate, Captain Crawley, who requests his help. This fun, rousing novel, written for tweens, will be thoroughly enjoyed by anyone who loves pirate, adventure and ghost stories.check it out more reviews
