See-through Pirates

Item Details

From Captain Hook to Blackbeard, pirates have long captured the imaginations of both children and adults. A stunning collection of tales, facts, images, and maps, this book goes behind the myths and legends with a look at the reality of life on the ocean. Two special spreads with printed, see-through acetate pages provide a window onto the pirates' greatest weapon--their ships--and the tricks they used to surprise their victims. The battles and treasure hunts that are the stuff of classic pirate adventure stories come alive with more than 120 full-color illustrations. Recommended by the Parents' Choice Foundation
