Story Telling: We have an adventure story. Or, you could call it a pirate’s tale. It’s definitely a boy’s story.
Dislikes: It’s mostly a matter of tastes, as I’ve never truly bought into the romanticizing of the piracy or pirate life.
Likes: It is a more traditional story, so there are rules of conduct safe for the younger ears.
Conclusion: There’s really nothing wrong with this story. Enjoy it with your buccaneers.
