Anne Bonny by Laura Perdew( )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 560 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Yo-ho-ho! Join our terror on the high seas as stories of famous pirates from around the world are retold in this fast-moving series for kids in grades 3 through 6; each book includes an analysis page in each chapter that helps the kids understand what is real and what might have been fictionalized over time; Each book provides a concluding chapter that recounts for the kids whether the pirate is more legend or mostly truth.During the Golden Age of Piracy in the early 1700s, pirates ruled the Caribbean. They cut off trade routes and plundered merchant ships. Pirates made off with prizes of tobacco, fabrics, rum, weapons, food, and more. Of the several thousand pirates in the Caribbean in 1720, there were only two known women. One was Anne Bonny, a woman with a fierce temper and strong will. Dressed in men s clothing, Bonny was known to wield a cutlass, carry a gun, run gunpowder, and take an active role in every attack. The other was Anne s friend Mary Read. Their stories as pirates sailing with Calico Jack are legendary. The stories are mostly true.This book correlates well to common core standards that ask students to read stories and literature, as well as more complex texts that provide facts and background knowledge in areas such as science and social studies. Students will be challenged and asked questions that push them to refer back to what they ve read. This stresses critical-thinking, problem-solving, and analytical skills that are required for success in college, career, and life
