Pirate Island Treasure
by Marilyn Helmer
Illustrated by David Parkins
Orca Book Publishers, 2013
“Heave ho and away we go, treasure hunting, treasure hunting,
Heave ho and away we go to look for pirate treasure.”
Almost every summer while my children were growing up, our family would head for the Maritimes, usually to a rented cottage on Prince Edward Island. With miles and miles of sandy beaches to explore, we quickly left our city-dweller selves behind for the lure of the sea. We became avid beachcombers, exploring the sand with eyes open because we never knew what treasures we would find.
Of course, treasure, like beauty, is in the eyes of the beholder. In our eyes, pieces of sea-polished glass, shells, stones washed smooth and rounded by the waves, oddly-shaped driftwood and an old bottle was treasure indeed. And what story possibilities they held!
Pirate Island Treasure combines my love of storytelling with my love of treasure hunting. But in this case, not just any treasure – pirate treasure! Add a healthy helping of imagination and the joy of spinning a tale and the pirate treasure turns into an exciting story of discovery and adventure.
