'(Pirates!) is a swashbuckling tale of suspense, romance, danger and sisterhood. Rees writes through the eyes of a teenager and brilliantly describes the trials that her characters face' Sunday Express July 2004 'Pirates! by Celia Rees is brilliant, fabulous, unputdownable Rees' themes are those of great literature. Rees encompasses in her novel not only the ethics of the slave trade but racism and the position of women in society. These themes and issues give the book the feel of an adult novel but when combined with the all-pervading sense of adventure and a dash of romance the end result is deeply satisfying.' Books for Keeps 'Children of this age [8-12] aspire to be teenagers, and never more so than when given a rip-roaring tale about them. Celia Rees has followed the best-selling Witch Child with Pirates! Superbly well-written, this rollocking romance is pure joy.' The Times
