Book Review and Giveaway: Kitt Pirate: Snaggletooth's Treasure

Kitt Pirate is the youngest buccaneer captain to sail the Caribbean. That doesn’t stop him from successfully leading his crew to Caverock Island in search of Captain ‘Snaggletooth’ Gustavo’s legendary treasure.

Once Captain Kitt and his crew dock their ship, the Bonita, their adventure begins. With Snaggletooth’s treasure map in hand, they set out through the jungle in search of riches. They have to fight off humidity, giant spiders, and worst of all, doubts, in their quest for gold. 

The treasure map leads Kitt and his crew to a cave. Confident the buried treasure is in the cave they forge ahead only to find a horrible sea creature instead. They must get past the sea creature to get to the treasure. Can Kitt Pirate pass a test of wits or will he have to leave the treasure behind?

The author, Ben Oliver, does a good job with character development within a short time. Kitt’s adventures are exciting with twists and turns that keep the reader on edge, wondering what is next.  Great vocabulary for the young reader. I recommend this book for boys first through fourth grade. A strong chapter book/early middle grade book for ages 7-10.

This sounds like tons of fun. It might be a little young for my boy readers (I have a 6th grader and a 4th grader), but I want to give it a try. They'll probably like it. :)

And I suspect my 2nd grade girl might enjoy it as well. :)

My son likes the swashbuckling he's seen from pirates like Dr. Hook.

My grandson and grandaughter, ages 4 and 7, would love the adventure and get excited at the suspense of fighting off giant spiders and sea monsters. It sounds like it might be a fun story to read out loud as well.

It's easy to find great books for my 10 year-old daughter but not my 7 year-old son. He's much pickier. But I think he would love this one. Thanks for this giveaway!
