The Captain Jack Sparrow Handbook

The Captain Jack Sparrow Handbook:
A Swashbuckler's Guide From the Pirates of the Caribbean
Author: Jason Heller
Publisher: Quirk Books
Hardcover 176 pages
ISBN 9781594745041


For every would-be pirate who's wished to cast off the shackles of landlubber society, here is the official guide to taking up seagoing roguishness the right way—er, that is, the right wrong way—well, let’s just say Jack’s way.

The Captain Jack Sparrow Handbook gives you an insider’s perspective on all the dirty tricks of the buccaneer’s trade, helpfully arrrrrrrrrticulating such vital nautical information as:

• How to Bury Treasure
• How to Break a Curse
• How to Fight a Tavern Full of Angry Men
• How to Stay Alive When Your Ship Sinks
• How to Cope with Mermaids

. . . and dozens more crucial skills you’ll want to master before hitting the high seas.

My Thoughts:

I adore this book!! It's everything I wanted it to be and more! The book itself is hardbound and gorgeous. Complete with beautiful photos taken from the "Pirates of the Caribbean" movie series and illustrations to help one along on their quest to become a "good" pirate, this handbook will delight readers of all ages. With just the illustrations alone, one will not be able to pass by this book without picking it up and picture reading; however, the true delight is in the prose!

Jason Heller did a fabulous job of writing an entertainingly humorous and educational guide to pirate life. He combined actual facts along with information about Captain Jack Sparrow and his crew to create a true treasure for the pirate in all of us!! 

About the Author:

This book was supplied by Quirk books for me to honestly review.
