Humor, magic, and adventure abound in the third - and final - book of the Very Nearly Honorable League of Pirates series.
Hilary Westfield is now a freelance pirate. After trying to prove herself to the VNHLP, she realized many members of the league weren't all that honorable - not even very nearly. With Captain Blacktooth in cahoots with the Mutineers, the kingdom of Augusta and all its magic are at risk.
What the league needs is a very honorable pirate to be their new president. So Hilary - with the help of her friends, including the always spirited gargoyle - challenges Blacktooth to a high seas battle. Winner takes all. Loser, at best, will be exiled.
Caroline Carlson has created a world where magic is currency, pirates are more charming than alarming, and a girl can choose a life as a pirate instead of a life in petticoats. And she once again delivers a story of high stakes, high seas, and high society in the hilarious and charming conclusion to the Very Nearly Honorable League of Pirates series.

Our family has listened to many audio books. Never has one narrator made so many people come alive. Just the way she does the gargoyle's voice is worth the time. The story is great too! Much fun for all.
This was great to listen to! Lots of different things happen in the story with twist and turns to keep your interest.
My 10-year-old daughter and I loved the final installment in this series. Katherine Kellgren is an exceptional narrator who brings the characters to life.
A hilarious book with an absolutely brilliant narrator! I will enjoy re-reading these books many times in the future!
This is the third book in the Very Nearly Honorable League of Pirates chapter book series. Yes, it's a children's book. But people of every age should enjoy these books and especially their wonderfully-constructed humor.
It has numerous laugh-out-loud sequences and highly entertaining dialogue.
Katherine Kellgren reads these books with perfect comic timing and a pitch-perfect sense for when the dialogue should be read slightly over the top. Just right every time. I urge you to listen because Kellgren makes the book even more enjoyable.
If you and/or your child have not read this series of books, please do you/your child a favor and get started right away! You won't be sorry.
All of my children and I have thoroughly enjoyed this series. Hillary Westfield is a wonderful character that both boys and girls can relate to. The performance is a pleasure to listen to and keeps all ages engaged.
