9781444005844: Skeleton Island (Sam Silver Undercover Pirate)

How to become an Undercover Pirate...

1)Have a pirate captain as your ancient ancestor
2)Find a message in a bottle and a magic gold doubloon
3)Get whisked back in time to join a pirate crew
4)When you get home DON'T TELL ANYONE. Remember - you're undercover!

Sam Silver lives near the sea and enjoys beach-combing for pirate treasures. When he finds an ancient message in a bottle he thinks it will make a great new relic for his collection, but the bottle holds a very special secret...

Inside is a gold doubloon which whisks Sam back in time to 1706. Suddenly he's on board a pirate ship - the Sea Wolf - surrounded by her fearsome captain and crew and sailing the Caribbean Sea. If Sam can't think of a very good reason why they should keep him alive, he'll be forced to walk the plank!

About the Author:

Jan and Sara were already friends when one day they decided they wanted to write children's stories and it would be more fun to write them together. That was 15 years ago. Since then they've written over 130 stories - including some about ghosts, football, ghosts playing football and naughty Gargoylz.. Jan lives in Essex with her family and Sara lives in London with hers. They both have black cats who completely rule their lives.

From Booklist:

Sam Silver is perennially on the lookout for treasure on the beach behind his house in Backwater Bay. When he trips over an old bottle in the surf, he gets more than he bargained for, as it contains an old letter from his great-grandfather, John Silver, and a magical doubloon that transports him to the deck of a pirate ship in 1706. Excited and slightly confused, Sam enlists the help of the pirates to find lost treasure and joins their crew as the Sea Wolf’s new lookout. His attempts to fit in with a 300-year-old society are humorous indeed, and his position as an outsider lets the reader learn the ropes of a pirate’s life along with him. Sam’s time-traveling exploits continue in the simultaneously published Ghost Ship, in which he returns to the Sea Wolf to help the pirates take on a ship terrorizing the Caribbean. This rollicking and well-written adventure series guarantees readers a swashbuckling good time on the high seas. Grades 1-3. --Julia Smith
