The Coming Storm is a quick read, and fun. As a self-appointed Captain Jack Sparrow expert and enthusiast, I'm rather picky about folks getting him right. Rob Kidd does an admirable job here, capturing Captain Jack's voice and mannerisms so well that I actually pictured a 21 Jump Street-era Johnny Depp acting them out. The book is very clearly part of a series, and while it could stand alone, there's no reason you'd want it to. It has its own arc and ties in with a larger storyline as well.

Book 1) The Coming Storm: The Back of the Book. I, Captain Jack Sparrow, being recently possessed of a ship, a crew, and a hat, do take it upon me from this day forth to faithfully and truthfully recount our adventures on the high seas and lowly streets in this Captain's Log. I carry out this duty in accordance with my position as Captain of the good ship Barnacle, and as befits a Captain. I do solemnly swear to write nothing but the truth about me, my crew, and the events that befall us, no matter how fantastical or grim.

Pirates of the Caribbean: Jack Sparrow: The Coming Storm is the first in the series of young reader books written by Rob Kidd dealing with the early life of Jack Sparrow. It was released on June 1, 2006. Adventure-seeking teenager Jack Sparrow has assembled a motley crew, and they’re on the quest of a lifetime. Their goal: to locate and procure the legendary Sword of Cortés, which will grant them unimaginable power.

My son absolutely loves these series! This series has brought out his passion for reading and he is even able to take reading tests on them at his school. So not only has this book encouraged awesome reading habits, but his grades are sky-rocketing!

I bought this book as reading material for fourth grader in my extended family. He likes pirates and so it was appropriate. It is not a quality piece of literature; just a marketing ploy by Dinsey. Yet, it is a cute, predictable and humourous account of a young Jack Sparrow. It is slightly vague in its discriptions because it is dependent on the reader having seen the pirate movie trilogy. Also, it simply is an introduction to the characters in the movie. It's about adventures, not Jack's history, which I thought it might be. Beware: there is usage of pirate dialect and Spanish words which may be difficult for little readers to decipher.

This entire series has been a great motivator for our elementary school kids. They want to read and are excited for each new book.

My grandson, age 12, is into pirates, so I purchased this book and two more Pirates of the Caribbean book. My grandson was surprised that this Pirates of the Caribbean is younger than Johnny Depp's character. My grandson highly recommends reading for anyone who is into pirates

Shipping cost was way to expensive. Book was fine but also expensive for such an old book but was a gift.
This is the first book in a new series for young readers about the teenage years of Jack Sparrow from Pirates of the Caribbean, when he first became a pirate and went off in search of treasure.

Teenage Arabella lives a dreary life in Tortuga. Her mother was kidnapped by pirates, her father is always drinking, and she spends her days working in her father's tavern. The only bright spot in serving drinks to the pirates is that she can listen to their stories of adventure and treasure hunting. One day, a young man her age stumbles into the tavern -- and gets into a lot of trouble when he steals from an infamous pirate. Arabella rescues the young man, who introduces himself to her as Jack Sparrow. Jack is a young stowaway who dreams of having his own ship and searching for treasure. To get away from her miserable life Arabella agrees to help him. They take an abandoned ship, the Barnacle, and with the help of Fitzwilliam, a spoiled young Englishman in search of adventure, leave Tortuga to sail the Caribbean in search of the "Sword of Cortes," which promises wealth and power to whoever finds it.

I was a little skeptical when I started reading this book of how well a children's book writer would do at writing a young Jack Sparrow. I am pleased to say I thought the writer did a pretty good job at writing his character and dialogue. The other members of the "crew" were likeable characters as well. The book is rather short, even for the reading level it's written for, but it was still pretty enjoyable. Young readers who enjoyed the Pirates of the Caribbean films are sure to enjoy this book, but I think older fans looking for a fun adventure could enjoy this book as well. I look forward to reading future books in this series and seeing what adventures young Jack and his crew run into next.
