Tell No Tales: Pirates of the Southern Seas
The book Tell No Tales is about the pirates of the southern seas – particularly female pirates. It is a partially fictional book. Some characters were real, like Anne Bonny and Calico Jack, while other characters in this book were made up. It is a comic/graphic novel book which makes it more fun to read. Unfortunately for me, the book was a little confusing on where I should start. Because all the words in each different square tied in to one specific argument or conversation it made it difficult to follow, but I got the hang of it after a while. The illustrations are really good. Reading through this graphic novel visually is like I am watching a movie. The book does have the “H” word in it, so if you’re the kind of person who doesn’t want your kids seeing that in books, then this is not the book for you to grab for them. But if you do not mind that word, then it doesn’t really matter.
I would recommend this book for kids twelve and up because it is a much longer graphic novel and a little difficult to follow because of the layout. Overall it is a pretty good book and I liked the story.
