This classic flap book in the "See Inside" series is brought to life with a new sound panel. Venture onto the high seas in this illustrated book that explores the history of the pirates and bloodthirsty buccaneers of the 18th century. Sounds help bring the pictures to life. Children won't be able to resist pushing the buttons to hear the noises, including cannons being fired, a sword fight on deck, a ship on fire, pirates cackling, a tavern brawl, a sinking ship and a spooky ghost-pirate laugh to end on. The book contains over seventy flaps, which children can lift to delve further into the world of pirates, parrots, pieces of eight and barrels of rum. In addition to being hugely entertaining, this book is also immensely informative and is packed with accurate historical information.
