Lilly and the Pirates Summary

Lilly and the Pirates by Phyllis Root

Lilly is a ten-year-old worrywart. To keep her concerns at bay, she diligently and fervently lists them in a worry book. Her globe-trotting scientist-parents don't worry about anything. When they learn of a rare sighting of the frangipani fruit fly, they set sail for the fabled Shipwreck Islands. Since water is her greatest fear, Lilly stays behind with her eccentric, librarian great-uncle. Then news comes that the scientists are shipwrecked, and Lilly must overcome her fear of the sea, find the hidden island, and outsmart a bunch of treasure-hungry pirates to save her parents. Rob Shepperson's detailed, action-packed pencil illustrations are as wonderfully good-humored as the story.

Lilly and the Pirates Reviews

* [An] enjoyably preposterous, emotionally resonant, library-revering adventure. --Kirkus Reviews, starred review

Many children will relate to this rather cozy adventure story and its lovably flawed heroine. --Booklist

Full of adventure and questions of 'What next?' --Library Media Connection
