Lisa Norby does a good job of adapting an old classic. My only fear is that readers might think that, because they read this version, they will not get anything new out of reading the original. That being said, this adaptation is great for young readers. It is exciting, written simply, and has a few illustrations. It can be read aloud or alone. Any child interested in pirates (maybe stemming off of the Pirates of the Caribbean movies) would enjoy this book. It is a coming-of-age tale that will send readers into a world that is, most likely, very different than their own. Ages 7-10. ( )
