Backbeard: Pirate for Hire (AR 2 . 7 )

by Matthew McElligott




This book is very funny, especially the reasons why the Pirate Council fires Backbeard and won’t let him be a pirate any more.

I also liked the part where Backbeard goes to the blacksmith but is too strong to be a smith.  It was funny and kind of ironic since most people aren’t strong enough to be a blacksmith but he was too strong.

Who will like this book?  Kids interested in being pirates and finding a job.  Kids will also like that this book is about being fair.
