Staff Reviews

A subtle but trenchant exploration of issues of friendship, secrets, pirate's booty, and the ways each of us is an attacking pirate in our own way. Heart-rending, but, figuratively, unlike getting a pirate saber through your chest, which would be the literal way, so, much better. Pirate attack!

— Derek

Join Captain Blackbeard and his pirate crew for an action-packed adventure on the high seas in this Level 2 DK Reader that features photographs, diagrams, fun facts, and strong visual clues.

Pirate Attack! will build reading skills while teaching exciting vocabulary and entertaining young readers as they experience attacking another pirate ship, winning the treasure, and overcoming a storm at sea. Explore the parts of a pirate ship, pirate rules and how those who broke them were punished, pirate food, and even learn a pirate sea shanty.

Perfect for 5- to 7-year-olds beginning to read fluently with support, Level 2 titles contain carefully selected photographic images to complement the text, providing strong visual clues to build vocabulary and confidence. Additional information spreads are full of extra fun facts, developing the topics through a range of nonfiction presentation styles such as diagrams and activities.
