Hello and welcome to our stop on The Curse Of Calico Jack blog tour!
Thank you very much to Emma @ Damppebbles and Colin Garrow for providing a copy of the book to [K]
The review below is 100% honest and all of her own views.
A mysterious book. A creepy kidnapping. A ghostly pirate on the loose.
Researching ideas for a pirate story, 12-year-old Jeff and his pal Suzi uncover a mysterious book that reveals weirdly moving images of a scary pirate captain. After an old movie appears to replicate the images, one of Jeff’s teachers is kidnapped, prompting the investigative twosome to seek help tracking down the ghostly buccaneer. But Calico Jack has a history in Skeleton Cove and he’s out for revenge…
THE CURSE OF CALICO JACK is book #2 in this scary adventure series. If you like Goosebumps, you’ll love Skeleton Cove!
Published in paperback and digital formats on 8th December 2019.
When school sets them a task of writing a pirate story Jeff and Suzi set off to find some ideas. After discovering a weird book, strange things start happening in the town.
This is book 2 in the Skeleton Cove series and we are back into the midst of the action. Picking up a couple of months after book 1 we are reintroduced to Jeff and Suzi, together with the central characters we were introduced to in the previous story. Now faced with a mystery of a ghostly pirate and mysterious disappearances I found I was gripped right from the start and finished this in record time.
I can’t wait to see what mysterious happenings occurs at Skeleton Cove next!
