Kidlit Giveaway Hop 2014: Sam Silver: Undercover Pirate

Children's Book Week 2014 Kidlit Giveaway HopIt’s Children’s Book Week, and once again, I’m proud to be participating in the Kidlit Giveaway Hop hosted by Mother Daughter Books and Youth Literature Reviews. Participants will be giving away books for children and teens, gift cards, cash and more, so hop around and you’re sure to find something interesting to enter to win!

Sam Silver: Undercover Pirate. KidnappedI am giving away two early chapter books in the Sam Silver: Undercover Pirate series by Jan Burchett. & Sara Vogler, Kidnapped and The Deadly Trap to one lucky winner. These were previously released in the U.K. and have been published for the first time in the U.S. this year.

Sam Silver: Undercover Pirate: The Deadly TrapThis fun series stars a modern-day boy who finds a way to travel back in time to a pirate ship. Together with his best friends, a girl in disguise and a boy of African-Caribbean descent, they have one swashbuckling adventure after another. I was sent these two books for review by the publisher. My son read both of them through, when he’s rarely interested in reading more than one book of a series to himself. Since my library has now purchased the entire series (and with my son’s permission), I’m giving away our copies so that some other pirate-loving kid can enjoy Sam Silver and his friends!

This giveaway runs from May 12- midnight May 18 (EST) and is open to the U.S. and Canada.  Please leave a comment about your favorite pirate, literary or otherwise, to enter!

  1. Hi there, just wanted to say the books you’ve shared here look and sound great. I would’ve entered the giveaway if I live in the U.S.. Still, Happy Children’s Book Week, and it’s a pleasure following you!

  2. Angela says:

    Black Beard is my favorite pirate! ARGH! We took a bit of a tour to see all of his houses 🙂 I believe he killed a wife in each of them lol

  3. Jennifer says:

    One of my sons has decided Bluebeard is his favorite. Was there ever a Bluebeard?

    • I think Bluebeard is the scary wife-murdering guy from the fairy tale by that name… but I’ve seen kid’s books give pirates all sorts of colored-beard names, because of Blackbeard.

  4. Captain Hook made me tremble in my pants when I was a girl! Now a days I know better. Thanks for the opportunity!

  5. Heather B says:

    Wow I don’t think I have ever really thought about a favorite Pirate… I guess I would have to say Hook! Think I will add some pirate books to our list for today’s library trip!

    • Captain Hook is a good one! Pirates have been favorites at my house for a while… if you click my pirates tag on the side, you’ll find pirate books for all ages!

  7. Merry says:

    My boys love pirates and they would love to read these books. I do love series as I think they help to encourage reading more.

    My boys loved Peter Pan, so I’m going to have to go with Captain Hook.

  10. Well now, this is an easy question! Not only is Captain Jack Sparrow my favorite pirate, he’s one of my favorite characters ever. 🙂 That, and a historical fiction novel I wrote, led me to research historical pirates, giving me many other favorites…like Calico Jack Rackham, nicknamed for his strange clothing; Bartholemew Roberts, a teetotaller who made his crew attend prayer services; and Anne Bonny and Mary Read, the only-known female pirates in the Caribbean!

    • Captain Jack is fun – but I’m also a big fan of Anne Bonny and Mary Read. (and love the shout-out in “Pirates Don’t Change Diapers” of the baby being named Bonny Anne.

  11. Cursed Pirate Girl is one that my 8 year old daughter liked so much that she asked to talk to the head of the library in an attempt to get the library to purchase the sequels (so that she and other kids can enjoy them). Her favorite real pirate is Madam Ching – the most successful pirate in the world – ever (and she loves that the most successful was a girl!).

    Pirates hmmmm let me see, how about Captain Hook! Yes, Captain Hook is the one that I will choose for this entry. But, I must say Tinkerbell is my real favorite buzzing character. lol I just hate to say that a pirate is someone that I favor! But cheers to you for helping to promote literacy!

  16. Dorothy Teel says:

    My favorite pirate remains Captain Hook from Peter Pan,he is the first one I met and he taught me to not mess with a crocodile.. lol

  17. Les Johnson says:
