    Known for his recklessness, Benedict Arnold just didn't know when to quit. Even as a young boy he was already pulling crazy stunts like climbing up on a burning roof and picking a fight with the town constable. As an adult, this same reckless determination drove him to obsession with becoming a leader and a hero in every battle. His efforts were rewarded in 1777 when George Washington pronounced him "the bravest of the brave." Arnold might have gone down in history as one of the bravest war heroes of all time, but in the years following, his greed led him down a tragic path of treachery. ~ Rachel P.

    Ever wonder where the Treasure Islands are hiding in today's sorry lot of children's literature? If your children crave good, old-fashioned storytelling and a wild adventure, look no further than this series by Ted Bell which pits a young, patriotic hero against a band of pirates. Mix in a hearty dose of time travel, famous historical figures and set it all in the tumultuous backdrop of pre-World War II and whew, you are in for a wild ride. It all begins in 1939 on Graybeard Island, a small island strategically located in the English Channel between England and France. 12-year-old Nick McIver, his 6-year-old sister Kate, his WWI pilot father and his brave mother live in and man the island's lighthouse. In Nick of Time, Nick, his sister and his friends discover a German U-boat beneath the waters of their island. As they risk their lives to investigate further, Nick discovers a time machine in a chest belonging to his ancestor, Captain Angus McIver. In addition to the Nazi threat, he becomes the target of Billy Blood, a pirate who owns a twin time machine and travels through time capturing children and holding them for ransom. As Nick travels between his own time and 1805, he meets Captain McIver and Lord Nelson, commands a warship, tries to outwit Billy Blood, and attempts to rescue the captured children. Nick's adventures continue in the sea and in the air in Time Pirate, where Nick restores his father's old Sopwith Camel and tries to take out a German airbase on a neighboring island. Then Billy Blood resurfaces, kidnaps Kate, and hatches a plan to intercept the wealthy French warships as they travel to Yorktown to aid the American troops during the Revolutionary War. Drawn into Billy's schemes, Nick travels to 1781, meets George Washington and Lafayette, and struggles with the ethics of helping the Americans battle his own country so they'll be around in 1940 to become allies with England in WWII. Please note there is some mild language, primarily a few "damns" spoken by the pirates. 400+ pgs each, pb. Jess
