Like every other 12-year-old, Jim Davis longs for thrills and adventures.
And unwittingly, he finds it when he comes across a ring of pirates. These pirates aren’t friendly, swash-buckling type. They are serious smugglers.
At first, Jim finds them to be friendly and interesting. But his ‘friend’ Marah turns out to be more dangerous than Jim could imagine.
John Masefield first published Jim Davis, A High-Sea Adventure in 1911; fortunately, Scholastic has recently republished it. A tale of pirates and adventure never goes out of style.
Recommended for ages 10 and up.
