Captain Jack Sparrow was once a teenager too! This series tells original stories about the scrapes the young pirate found himself in, and how he got out. Book 11 finds Jack setting off on his own for a treasure he's not even sure exists--the mythical Trident of Neptune. But a mysterious band of pirates is also looking for the treasure--who will find it first?

A little boy who doesn't like to read much is entranced by these Jack Sparrow books. They're well written for kids with a sense of adventure. Like the Hardy Boys or a dozen other series before them, they deliver a consistent and familiar character in cleverly worked plots. The one thing I'd like to change would be to add few more illustrations. All you get here is the illustration on the cover.
One thing that Disney is expert at is creating franchises. And they have definitely accomplished that with the ever popular PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN, from amusement park rides to three feature films, a slew of merchandise, and this real gem: the JACK SPARROW book series by Rob Kidd. Each volume is short and quick, always coming in under 150 pages. These are definitely geared towards the children's market, but there is something really magical about each entry that shines to both kids and adults alike. And the same can be said about book eleven, POSEIDON'S PEAK.
A teenage Jack Sparrow rows out into the middle of the ocean. He's been abandoned by all the friends he had, and now he's heard whispers of an ancient treasure hidden somewhere on a mountain peak. He sets off to look for it, and soon finds himself running from islanders, swimming into underground caverns, and trying to figure out just who is this mysterious dying man who knows Jack's name, but nothing about himself...
Jack Sparrow is floating in a small boat, not even worthy of being called a dingy, as he begins his next strange, unusual and always exciting adventure. Once he lands upon a very small island, he meets a very bloody, very broken man who has no idea who he is or how he got there. The only thing he knows is...Jack.
Jack, of course, is full of sarcasm, but helps the beaten and bloody man all while trying to help him figure out how the man knows him. During this, the two encounter the natives of the island who worship a cat...a very familiar cat. Jack and the man, finally known as 'Bloody Billy,' along with 'the familiar cat' are whisked into a new adventure. In so doing, Jack comes face to face with even more familiar faces who are after the very thing Jack intend to capture.
Poseidon's Peak is a great adventure, one that my 10 year old and I loved to dive into. We've read the other young Jack Sparrow books and very much enjoyed them together. Jack once again had us...
