Pirateology series


by Captain William Lubber
(and Dugald Steer)

A lavish novelty book set up as the long lost ships log of Captain William Lubber, a pirate-hunter, and his efforts to chase down the notorious pirate Arabella Dummond.

Part of the 'ology' series, this book is full of pictures, maps, flaps, codes to decipher, vibrant illustrations, even a pirate map and treasure to find. Kids won't realize all they are learning with this interactive gem.

We totally agree with School Library Journal that this book is "perfect for reluctant readers", who will love the content and feel less like they are "reading" and more like they are "experiencing" something.

And, there are two companion books to enjoy as well:

  • The Pirateology Handbook: A Course in Pirate Hunting
  • Pirateology Guidebook and Model Set

Reading Levels
