grandma's bookshelf - The Buccaneering Book of Pirates - I'm Giving One Away!

Last Thursday - September 19th - was, "Talk like a Pirate Day" and I posted review and give-away of a fun Pirate book (you'll find it at this link), so today - even though it isn't a Pirate-type day, I want to let you know about another book and give-away . . . this time its for The Buccaneering Book of Pirates!

The Buccaneering Book of Pirates
Written by - Saviour Pirotta
Illustrator - Mark Robertson
Publisher - Sterling Children's Books
Ages - 4+

Favorite Features -
  • Includes four shortened classic "Pirate" stories - Treasure Island, The Corsair Captain, The Captain's Secret, Davy Jones' Locker, The Pirate Queen and A Royal Pardon
  • Includes a 3D pirate poster over four feet high with hidden "treasure" to find under flaps and pull-tabs
  • Colorful illustrations add to the fun! 
Sterling Children's Books says, "Climb aboard for six buccaneering adventures on the seven seas! Follow daring raids, dig for buried gold nd escape silent ghost ships in this collection of classic tales from around the world. But ignore old sailors' warnings at your peril: in the swish of a scimitar, a pirate's fate can change from kingdoms and riches to a cold and watery end. Now take your courage in both hands, unlock the sea chest and pull out your 3D poster. Hang the feisty buccaneer where you can keep a wary eye on him and discover the smuggled treasures he couldn't leave behind!"

If you have a grandchild who is a fan of the sea and pirates, then The Buccaneering Book of Pirates is one which they are sure to enjoy! The stories are classics and the poster is unique and more than just a poster! Read up on pirates, discover the "treasures" in the poster and then next year on September 19th you'll be all ready to dress and talk like a pirate for sure!

I'm happy to say, not only did Sterling Children's Books send me The Buccaneering Book of Pirates for free to review, but they are also providing another one for me to give-away!
