Discover the ghostly world of the paranormal through the eyes of our spooked narrator as he tags along on the second adventure in the Henry Hunter series!
Henry and Dolf need your help to defeat the pirates and solve the mystery! Will you rise to the challenge?
My daughter, Brooke, loves pirate adventure books so we were excited to check out the second book in the Henry Hunter series called Henry Hunter and the Cursed Pirates. If you are familiar with the first book, Henry Hunter has a trusty sidekick called Dolf who like to solve mysteries. In this case, Henry’s friend, Charlie, is desperate for help when his parents have gone missing in the Caribbean Ocean! Unfortunately, no one will believe him that something sinister is afoot – that is until Henry and Dolf are on the case!
Henry Hunter and the Cursed Pirates follows Henry and Dolf as they follow leads about the sighting of a ghostly galleon and a huge tentacle of mist. This book explores local pirate history and myths which help Henry and Dolf uncover a cursed crew of pirates, led by no other than the deadly Edward Teach—Blackbeard himself! But what’s keeping the pirates sailing beyond their deaths? And how and why are they building a crew of live prisoners? It’s up to Henry and Dolf to survive monster waves and befriend a crazy local seadog to solve the mystery and put the pirates back in their watery graves! Fun and exciting, this is a great mystery for kids with twists and turns on every page. Awesome!
