Charlotte and her brother, Jacob, are thrilled to head off on an adventure in their grandpa's boat, The Seawind. As they set sail for Pirate Island, they look forward to a day of beachcombing, playing pirates and storytelling. There are plenty of great treasures to be found, but Charlotte, who can be very bossy, is having trouble sharing with Jacob. When Charlotte accidentally loses one of Jacob's best finds, a piece of driftwood that looks just like a pirate's cutlass, it's the final straw. Feeling horrible for upsetting her brother, Charlotte is determined to set things right.
Southwestern Ohio Young Adult Materials Review Group - January 1, 2014
"Generously illustrated with simple pen-and-ink drawings, this easy-to-read chapter book provides appealing independent reading experience for young students."
Resource Links - December 1, 2013
"Jacob and Charlotte are relatable siblings...A fun adventure story that will be enjoyed by readers."
CM Magazine - October 11, 2013
"Helmer writes the relationship between Jacob and Charlotte with attention to the complexity of sibling rivalry; discussing jealousy, sharing, competition, promises and guilt...Useful as a story for character education, Helmer ensures that the children solve their own problems with little to no interference from their grandpa. New readers will enjoy the adventurous spirit of the characters, and more experienced readers will enjoy predicting what may happen next on Pirate Island."
