Chases on the high seas, battles with a vengeful sea monster, and the vow of a rival pirate to find the man who escaped him.

Captain Patty and the Nameless Navigator (The Adventures of Captain Patty #1) Reviews
This book was great! It had a lot of humor, action, suspense, and some great plot twists! I can't wait to read the next one!
This children's book will delight readers of all ages really. Who is not excited by the prospect of being lost at sea and then rescued by a boatload of pirates? In a mix of colonial and British locales, as well as mainly on board ships at sea, the characters are a nice mix themselves of a young girl and her father and a young boy on the pirate ship. Some serious action of ships fighting and destroying each other, and hand to hand combat as well.Good news is that this is Book One of a series to which I am looking forward....I won this book in a Goodreads giveaway.
I received a free review copy of this book.Nice start! Gets the blood pumping.Should be "said my piece," not "peace." (Relatively typo-free, otherwise!)There's more religion than I expected for a book about pirates! There's also lots of drama and unexpected plot twists. An enchanting adventure, suitable for young and old!
It's a good story with an original idea, a pirate who keeps chocolate pies in the closet! The characters are likeable and there's some witty dialogue. Now here's my problem, if you are going to write a story that's about a British Naval officer and pirates and mostly takes place on sailing ships in the mid 1700s it's probably a good idea to learn just what type of ships there were, how those ships actually function, what the parts are actually called, how the Royal Navy was organized and how sailors and pirates talked, technical terms, jargon, dialects and accents. Just as important in a book for young people as it was for Robert Louis Stevenson and C.S. Forrester. That aside, the story was good enough that I wanted to read to the end to find out just how Plan 47 was going to work and what was Bateau's secret. You probably will too.
After reading the series of "The Ripple Affair" that this writer has written so far, I decided to look and see what else she has written so I purchased this book on Amazon in November. As I figured she didn't disappoint me in reading this. An adventure for both adults and children that will keep you on the edge of your seat. My kids loved it! Hope she continues to write more kids books as well as books like "The Ripple Affair" series.
I received this book free through Goodreads First Reads. I was surprised to find myself enjoying the story. My grandson will love this simply because it is about pirates! He will like the story line, too, and the fact that it is a chapter book will make it more enjoyable. A good story line, easy to follow plot, and believable characters all add to the pleasure.
