Editorial Reviews

“Helmer writes the relationship between Jacob and Charlotte with attention to the complexity of sibling rivalry; discussing jealousy, sharing, competition, promises and guilt…Useful as a story for character education, Helmer ensures that the children solve their own problems with little to no interference from their grandpa. New readers will enjoy the adventurous spirit of the characters, and more experienced readers will enjoy predicting what may happen next on Pirate Island.”

CM Magazine

“Jacob and Charlotte are relatable siblings…A fun adventure story that will be enjoyed by readers.”
