Reviews - What do customers think about Polly & the Pirates Volume 1?
An unexpected surprise -- Jan 9, 2007
Polly and the Pirates is a wonderful read - the characters are engaging, the action is smooth, and you end this volume with the sneaking suspicion that all following volumes will be even more captivating.
I appreciated the fact that the female characters weren't cookie-cutter or simple. It is becoming more and more difficult to find positive role models for young girls. I would have no problem giving this book to me niece.
I hope you give it a try and allow the story to sweep you away.
A Rollicking Good Time Jul 28, 2006
Polly is a young lady attending a finishing school. She is attentive and well-behaved, unlike some of her class mates. She balks at the idea of sneaking out and having adventures. But that all changes one strange night.
Polly wakes one night to find herself, and her bed, being carried away by pirates. One of them claims she is the daughter of their previous captains, the infamous Pirate Queen. Polly wants nothing to do with this and is afraid of getting in trouble at the school. But that is not to be as she is soon involved with the pirates once again as well as rivals, the Emperor, the navy, and lost treasure maps.
Much of the fun here is in wondering if Polly really is the daughter of the Pirate Queen. The whimsical art style helps add to the fun. This is a rollickingly fun adventure and we can only hope we will see more of Polly and the pirates. Check it out.
