In this brilliant new edition of Pirates, 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 at its 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
  • 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!
