There be pirate books...for the little buccaneers!

First off, we have two titles in a new series about a young Captain Jack Sparrow...before he was a captain. The first one is the Coming Storm.
The story of Jack Sparrow starts here! Teenage stowaway Jack Sparrow has assembled a motley crew and they’re on the quest of a lifetime. Their goal: to locate and procure the legendary Sword of Cortés, which will grant them unimaginable power. But will this ragtag team of adventurers survive their first mission or will they succumb to the power of the sea, vicious pirates, ancient curses, and the stormy threat of nature itself?

The second title is the Siren Song.

Captain Jack Sparrow’s ship, the Barnacle, and its up-till-now unshakable crew have suddenly fallen under a sinister spell. While continuing on their quest for the storied Sword of Cortés, the crew is attacked by a monstrous sea creature and then finds its shipmates entranced by an ethereal song and each of them attempts to take the Barnacle in a different direction-and away from the sword’s supposed location. Only Jack seems unaffected by the strange song, but can he both subdue his crew and defeat the mysterious force behind the dark spell?

For the slightly older crowd, we do have the junior novelization of the film, Pirates of the Caribbean : dead man's chest.

Thanks for reading,

Scurvy George
