Pirates Off Shore!

dtv Tiger Eye - North Sea Pirates

It is the early 15th Century. Jaike and Broder live on the North Sea island of Sylt  and are accustomed to the everyday hardships of the islander’s lives. They always do their best to give a helping hand in whatever way they can, be it by making salt, fishing, or even collecting loot on the beach – because without gathering the flotsam and jetsam that is washed ashore when misdirected ships come to grief, the people of Sylt would not be able to survive. One day, the two children set out in their small boat during a storm to put lights out to confuse any passing ships, when they almost capsize. They are rescued by pirates, of all people, who are involved in a sinister scheme…

The authors and illustrators know their subject areas inside out and manage to slip factual information suitable for the readership age into their thrilling stories. Varied page layouts and a high number of illustrations (e.g. “spot the…” picture puzzles, area maps, mazes, cross sections etc.) invite browsing, amazement and discovery.
