Jack Ferrington and the School for Swabbies by Clint Perry

Jack is excited to be going into middle school at the Pirate School.  He'll be one of the Fighting Eels now.  He's planning on taking cannon lessons.  However, everything doesn't work as planned.

FlyRockit Publishing and Net Galley allowed me to read this book for review (thank you).  How could I miss a pirate book?  You can grab a copy for you now.

This is great fun.  Jack gets in trouble as soon as he steps on board.  He has to take another math class and he hates it.  The bully from last year is still in their class, and now he has to mentor an excitable first grader during lunch.  Of course, with Anne Bonny starting and ending their classes with a muzzle shot, it made it a bit better.

When Max gets out of hand at lunch, Jack finds himself having to commit to coming down after school to clean it up.  He's irritated at Max and now the boat is ready to take the children back to the ship they are taught on.  He can't find him and they leave without him.  They don't appear to be concerned but Jack is.  He's skipping classes, getting his friends to help and they look everywhere for Max...

What Jack doesn't know is that Teach has a special relationship with Max and he is testing Jack.  I really liked the mischievous behavior of all and the way the story ended.  Any little pirate you might have in your household will love reading this book.  After all, there's a food fight in it.
