Summary:
Our friends Fred and George of Marsh Castle are back. They've been living with Prince Lupin, and working on the development of strawberry juice power. But a wine shortage has darkened the horizon, and Fred and George join with their old friend Victor to visit Chateau Dimerie and find out what's going on. Along the way, they are pressed into service by pirates, meet a ghost, and are plunged into battle alongside an army that actually knows what it is doing. Fred and George are no soldier

Having read the first in the series, this felt like being back on familiar territory. I'm growing rather fond of Fred and George, the intrepid guinea pig heroes, who find themselves plunged into another hazardous adventure, complete with swashbuckling pirates and beautiful princesses. As in the first book, the story is narrated in a fun and engaging style and I love the witty chapter sub-headings!

Another great story about the adventures of our furry friends, Fred and George. This time they get a LOT of action with, and against, pirates. Sadly there are some characters we won’t meet again, however, there are some we certainly will.

Our Princeling twins, Fred & George, face unexpected swashbuckling adventures in The Princelings and the Pirates. The adventure starts off innocuously enough - the wine from Dimerie has run out and the person that Castle Buckmore originally sent to find out why hasn't returned, so Fred, George, and Victor set out for Castle Dimerie to discover what's wrong. Along the way, they get kidnapped by pirates, meet beautiful princesses, as well as dig out long hidden secrets.

I'm not entirely sure why I

Once again the world of princelings created by Jemima Pett is brought to us by beautiful writing. I love the author’s voice in this tales. The tone of the story makes you feel ancient, in a very good way. The Princelings and the Pirates is a beautiful fairy tale for boys and girls, exquisitely presented to the reader. A masterpiece on its own, this pirate’s tale will delight you to the end.

This is the second book in the Princeling Trilogy.

Fred and George have come a long way since the first book The Princelings of the East. Fred continues to be deep in thought and George is working on his inventions, especially the one that power will be created using strawberry juice.

The princelings find out that something is happening to the Demeri wine and they are sent out with the friends to find out why. They find out that pirates are going from castle to castle and raiding what ever they ca

The second book of the Princelings trilogy benefits from the author's experience, giving readers a more flowing tale and plenty of excitement. After the all-action prologue we spend a little time re-establishing the main characters and the problem to be solved, and then the adventure takes off, with abductions, storms, rogues, heroes and heroines. Even a ghost!
Not only is a nice story in itself, but it takes us on into the third of the trilogy, leaving threads unravelled and a desire for ulitma

Palace intrigue, betrayal, kidnapped by pirates, young love, epic battle scenes, and injuries. This is a
tight, profound, well crafted, well edited (!) book with great character development. It's not scary, but touches on real life situations in a matter-of-fact way without hysteria. Overall story arc is incredible.

I'm buzzing through this enjoyable series and lovin' it.

This was an excellent second book for the series. I love the characters, and the plot is exciting and interesting. Like with the first book in this series, I think it could have been even more amazing if the author had used more guinea pig terms rather than people words, such as "cavie" instead of "person" for example. However, since I know this is just something I personally think would have been a nice touch, and not doing so doesn't spoil the story in any way, I'm not going to count her not d ...more

Jemima Pett has been living in a world of her own for many years. Day-dreaming in class, writing stories since she was eight, drawing maps of fantasy islands with train systems and timetables at ten. Unfortunately no-one wanted a fantasy island designer then, so she tried a few careers, getting great experiences in business, environmental research and social work. She finally got back to building ...more
