A tale of time twisting and treasure hunting, Skeleton Island is perfect for any Pirate or Time Travel fan.
Sam Silver loves collecting things to add to his treasure shelf in his bedroom. When he trips over a bottle on the beach he quickly discovers it has a letter inside. When he uncorks the bottle in his bedroom he unfurls the letter. It’s dated 1705! There is also a scrap of cloth inside the bottle hiding a dull brown coin. The real excitement begins when he rubs it on his sleeve.
Suddenly he’s in the bowels of a pirate ship, rocking on the ocean.
This is the first of many Sam Silver adventures. There are black and white illustrations scattered throughout the story, making it even better for 7+ readers
