Ghosts at Sea

Pirates, ghosts, and adventure on the high seas—what better combination to interest young readers who have grown up on Pirates of the Caribbean? This title in the Ghost Stories series includes two thin but engaging narrative accounts of ships said to haunt the ocean. The first surrounds the legendary Dutch pirate ship, the Flying Dutchman, which wrecked in a storm going around Africa’s Cape of Good Hope. The other tells of the Young Teazer, a privateer ship that exploded during the War of 1812. Enhanced by ghostly backgrounds with color photo insets, each account includes a map showing where the disaster occurred, a “History Connection” text box, and purported sightings. A short section on mirages and foggy conditions offers scientific explanations for these spectral ships. Entertaining, but light on content.Pirates, ghosts, and adventure on the high seas—what better combination to interest young readers who have grown up on Pirates of the Caribbean?
