Philip Steele has a passion for writing about history. He is a well-known author of more than one hundred children's books, including Castles, Pirates, Knights, The Best Book of Mummies, The World of Pirates, and The World of Castles. He was a student of medieval French and German literature, and has visited castles in England, France, Germany, Spain, and Poland. He has travelled to the Valley of the Kings and other sites of Ancient Egypt, and has met mummies face to face in the Cairo Museum. Philip now lives near Beaumaris and the other great castles of North Wales.From School Library Journal:
Grade 3-5. From Roman times to Viking raids to hijackings in the 1990s, Steele presents a chronological view of the life and times of pirates. His well-rounded presentation offers information about buccaneers in the Caribbean, North America, China, the Middle East, Spain, and Britain and gives a brief look at female pirates. Double-page spreads cover each topic with large-print, clearly written texts, and numerous sidebars. Similar in scope to Saviour Pirotta's Pirates and Treasures (Raintree, 1996), this title is set apart by its illustrations and reproductions, which are numerous, colorful, and lively. Wonderfully laced into the text, the pictures show pirate ships and dress from around the world, maps of routes, and flags. Minibiographies of over 50 "Rogues" are appended. A well-done book that browsers and pirate enthusiasts will enjoy.?Katherine Borchert, Arlington Central Library, VA
