Adventures on Amelia Island: A Pirate, A Princess and Buried Treasure by Jane R. Wood

by Jane R. Wood
(Jacksonville, Florida)

This book is the second in a series which follows 13-year-old Joey, 9-year old Bobby, and 5-year-old Katy, their sassy little sister, to Amelia Island during the annual Isle of Eight Flags Shrimp Festival. Katy meets a pirate and Bobby goes searching for buried treasure still rumored to be hidden on the island.

Local legends and tales of ghosts add to a story filled with colorful characters, humorous situations, and a youthful spirit of adventure.

As the author of this book, I use the pirates and buried treasure as a hook to get kids to read it, but also teach them some Florida history along the way.
