“Shivers!: The Pirate Book You’ve Been Looking For,” by  Annabeth Bondor-Stone and Connor White is about a pirate named Shivers. From spiders to ghosts, Shivers is afraid of everything. Shivers has a partner named Albee the Fish. Albee and Shivers are best friends since shivers takes Albee on all sorts of adventures.

One day, Shivers’ Pirate ship, ‘The Lady,’ breaks and Shivers’ parents make him a new one. Shivers loves the new ship but then his parents tell him that when a pirate gets a new ship, not one single drop of water can fall on the deck or else the Ghost of  Quincy Thomas the Pirate will haunt them until the pirate gives him treasure or else he will haunt them until they die!

Shivers takes care of his ship and doesn’t let one single drop of water fall on the deck, but since he’s so lucky, it starts to rain. Shivers rushes and tries to cover the deck of the ship but then… he misses a spot! Shivers soon realizes that he’s been cursed. Shivers meets up with his friend named Margo. Shivers, Margo and Albee have to find treasure to stop Quincy Thomas the Pirate. Will they stop him?

I would recommend this book to anyone who likes to laugh and read about adventures. Both boys and girls can relate to all of the characters. For example, Margo goes to school and Shivers doesn’t. Margo is brave but Shivers is afraid of everything. I would recommend this book to grades 3-5. It isn’t a very challenging to understand or too easy either.
