Hi, my name is Trevor Hladysh and I’m a 4th grader in Mrs. Moore’s class at Pinetree Elementary school in the Sulphur Sptings School District.
I’ll be reviewing The Stowaway written and illustrated by Kristiana Grerory. It was written in 1985 and is 126 pages long.
The story is about a California boy who stows away on a pirate ship. When the pirates catch him, they make him clean and work on the ship or else they will kill him. He becomes friends with a pirate named Billy. Billy’s dad is in jail. They try to get Billy’s dad out of the pirate jail so they can escape together. They break him out, but the guard catches them and sends the three on a boat to a deserted island. Read the story to find out what happens next.
I would recommend this book to any one who likes pirates, imagination and a good adventure.
