    2. McCaughream me sorprende por su facilidad con la cual puede hablar de piratas, domina todos los modismos, y las acciones dignas de un corsario, por este libro y otros m s seguramente pudo obtener el premio para realizar la segunda parte oficial de Peter Pan, m s por supuesto los diversos premios que ha obtenido por sus otros diversos libros La historia de estos 3 personajes que por razones del destino terminan en un viaje por la mar, envuelve entre aventuras y desaf os inimaginables una bien cui [...]

    3. Read in 2005, review from then This book wasn t that good either It was called, The Pirate s Son and that character was fairy cool, but the book focused on the friend of the boy, Nathan starting and ending the book with the most boring and annoying character isn t cool Nathan was a stupid boy obsessed with being christian, who hated pirates, but was fascinated by stories of them.Nathan had a sister that was better than him, but still not all that great And she lied to the Pirate s son because h [...]

    4. This is one of my favorite books ever, and I know that it s weird and probably not everyone s cup of tea, but I adored it It s in the 1700s and about an English boy and his sister who end up traveling with an awesome boy named Tamo who happens to be a pirate s son, to Madagascar, where they live with natives and meet nasty pirates and I don t even know I JUST LOVE IT OKAY 3 I ve read it like three times I randomly got it at a library sale I think because I liked Peter Pan in Scarlet by the same [...]

    5. Nathan Gull s father died penniless, so Nathan is thrown out of his school Another student, Tamo, is the son of a pirate He decides to return to his homeland of Madagascar, and he takes Nathan and his sister Maude, along Their ship s captain betrays them, trying to sell Maude to pirates The three struggle to suvive the troubles Tamo s past brings.

    6. Nathan has read everything on pirate s he can find When he is kicked out of school,after his father died penniless, he finds his dream comes true to go to sea The pirate s son, Tamo, takes Nathan and sister Maude to Madagascar Nathan s dream soon becomes a nightmare, but Mousie Maude finds herself A book that is definitely for young adult students or adults.

    7. Plundering Paradise is the first book I have read set in Madagascar and it was a thoroughly enjoyable adventure, made so because Maud, the female character in the book has the strongest spirit throughout

    8. Great YA book The title is deceiving, it s about a quiet orphan girl than her brother They take off with pirates and she is the smart one that gets them out of many tough places Coming of age novel that s can inspire young girls.

    9. An okay book I found it hard to understand to while i was reading it It was hard to tell who characters where at some times It was a boring book i thought and i board reading it all the time It was hard to follow along with the book too.

    10. I have to read this for school and I hate it It s the most boring book I have ever read Please DO NOT READ And maybe you will like it but this is just my opinion so don t take it personally if you like it.

    11. A rollicking tale of three children cast adrift at sea in the clutches of n er do well pirates brilliantly written, recommended

    12. Kind of slow Didn t care for writing style Boys father dies He and sister join pirate s son to Madagascar, and live with the natives But there are other pirates on the reef

    13. An excellent ripping yarn in a spectacular setting, even if porcupines shouldn t have appeared in the cast Madagascar has some much stranger prickly fellows called tenrecs.

    14. Enjoyable and well done I especially enjoyed the last quarter of the book It kept getting better and better.

    15. Themes of trying to escape fate Well plotted and described, but seems to have an anti Christian agenda Unrealistic view of happiness of the natives.

    16. Loved this I enjoyed this than I expected to Kind of Dickenesque or maybe it s just the period that creates this feeling,
