Legends of the Sea: Series


This lively series of four books - Pirates; Sea Monsters; Sea Mysteries; and Shipwrecks is beautifuly presented with vibrant, colourful illustrations and photographs and with really good-sized, easy-on-the eye text. Packed with bite-sized chunks of information in coloured boxes (did you know there were some famous women pirates too?), these books are accessible enough for emerging and less able readers but would still hold the interest of more confident readers. In Pirates, for instance, there is reference to the present-day piracy in Somalia and, on another note, to the Pirates of the Caribbeanmovies with Johnny Depp, making it easy for children to relate to the content. Highlighted words are explained in a useful and clear glossary and there are links to websites and books for further reading and information. The subject matter will have broad appeal but could be particularly attractive to boys. Short quizzes and True or False activities add to the fun!
