In a Nutshell: Granuaile - The Pirate Queen

The true story of an Irish girl who became a great sailor, leader of men and legendary pirate queen. Wow. Made-up stories do not come more exciting than this true one! In 1544, when girls from rich families were meant to sit at home waiting for marriage, fourteen-year-old Grace O’Malley wanted no such quiet life. Instead, she became the Pirate Queen – sailing the seas, defeating her enemies and even impressing the powerful English Queen Elizabeth I. Follow the action in this illustrated In a Nutshell book, which retells Granuaile’s story in a snappy modern style.
