The Shell Magicians Book Review

The Shell Magicians Book Review - Reviewed by Kidzworld on Apr 14, 2008
( Rating: 5 Star Rating)

We dug for treasure in Kai Meyers pirate-packed Shell Magicians novel. Read our review to see if we found any!

Author: Kai Meyer

Jolly and Munk are a pair of 14 year-old polliwiggles, people with magic power over water. They and their friends, a weird batch of pirates, creatures and even a bug poet, are in a world of adventure in the Caribbean seas! The Shell Magicians (Pirate Emperor in US book stores) is the sequel to The Wave Runners (Pirate Curse in the US) and continues in The Water Weavers (Pirate Wars to US readers). It's an action-packed adventure that's been translated from the original german so you can read it. Was it worth all that effort? Find out with our book review.

Pirates, Monsters and Booty

Lost at sea, Jolly and Griffin find themselves surrounded by strange monsters. They're rescued and reunited with old friends only to find out that there's a destiny ahead of them, and it doesn't include finding the missing Captain Bannon! Tyrone the cannibal pirate king is on the loose, the Maelstrom wants to... um... destroy stuff? Maybe? Nobody really knows. There's something wrong at the deep dark bottom of the sea and it's up to Jolly and Munk to master their magic powers to save the day. Yikes!

Treasure and Adventure!

Pirates? Yup. Cannibals? Yup. Kings? Yup. This book is packed with cool stuff, including ghosts, magic, seahorses, ancient mysteries and cool tattoos. There's also adventure, pirate duels and terrifying monsters from different dimensions! All it needs is a few robots and a pack of ninjas for ultimate awesomeness.


Drowning at Sea

There's a lot of drama in this story, but you miss some of the impact unless you've read the first novel. The ending will also leave you hanging without the third book in the series. There's also a scene with the poet bug that's really, really cheesy.


The Bottom Line

Yar-har! This book will keep you glued to the pages as the fantastic adventures lead Jolly and her friends from the far reaches of the sea to the court of a cannibal pirate king and beyond. It really helps to read the first book, and you'll be left craving the third, but it's a fantastic read and you won't regret it!
