Sam Maggs and Kendra Wells, authors of Tell No Tales, share their recommendations for swashbuckling, adventure-packed reads.
"Delicious in Dungeon is a medieval fantasy story about a group of adventurers who set out to explore a mysterious dungeon with a vast and complicated ecosystem, and along the way they learn how to cook and eat the plants and creatures within to sustain themselves on their journey. It's beautifully drawn and incredibly funny and a huge inspiration for my work."
- Kendra Wells
"Compass South is a sweeping story set in 1860 about two precocious young twins who get separated and end up in a race against time to find each other before a group of pirates who think they are the key to a dangerous treasure hunt do. Rebecca's art was a huge inspiration to me while drawing Tell No
Tales; anyone who enjoys TNT will LOVE Compass South and its sequel, Knife's Edge."
- Kendra Wells
"The first in an exhilarating twelve-book series about an eighteenth-century girl and her life disguised as a boy aboard Navy and pirate ships alike. These books constantly leave you on the edge of your seat, and are some of my favorite fictional pirate stories ever."
- Sam Maggs
"My favorite non-fiction book about true pirate history, this delightfully-written book introduces us to the story of heroic Caribbean pirates who defied imperial rule and became folk heroes, inspiring revolts in colonial towns around the world. A great source for those interested in the piratical historical record."
