About the Author:

Peter Chrisp, a professional author for 20 years, has written more than 90 historical books for young readers. He has been fascinated with pirates since he was eight years old, when he went to see Bernard Miles play Long John Silver at a London theatre.

.

From Booklist:

What do gladiators, bad weather, mammals, and pirates have in common? Not a lot subject-wise, but they’re consistently popular topics with kids. Visually reminiscent of DK books, although simpler, the Navigators series delves into the subject at hand with nuggets of easily digestible information in the form of text boxes, word definitions, engaging photographs and artwork, and labeled diagrams. Pirates points out that our association with the word pirate—as a peg-legged, eye-patch-wearing character shouting, “Hoist the Jolly Roger, me hearties!”—is false; the reality is revealed through an examination of life at sea. Structurally consistent, and with an informative “Investigate” section in the back matter, which includes pertinent websites, books, and museum exhibition suggestions, this series offers the legions of pirate-, animal-, weather-, and ancient civilization–obsessed kids out there a solid resource for school or pleasure, and it should be particularly appealing to reluctant readers. Grades 3-6. --Ann Kelley
