Pirates

(A book in the Horrible Histories Handbooks series)
A Chapter Book by

 
 
An exciting addition to the Horrible Histories series, these titles will tackle all the hot historical topics in a new full-colour format with durable cover. Beginning with the perennial favourite Pirates, they're all the Horrible History a reader needs in one handy little handbook. Terry Deary reveals the terrible truth behind the lousy pirate legends and lies so forget the brave heroes swinging from masts and the handsome young men sailing the seven seas for this is history as it's most horrible! Readers can decide who was the baddest of the bunch in the top ten of putrid pirates, discover why the women pirates were just as wicked as the men and learn to talk the patter of a Pirate. Plus there are foul facts on the ships they sailed, the punishments they suffered and the rules they lived by. Now the nasty bits are at your fingertips!
