Book Review: Horrendo’s Curse

Horrendo’s Curse is a graphic novel geared towards children about pirates! Horrendo’s curse is that he is polite and can only say nice things!  You’d think that this would be a wonderful curse for a child, but his manners end up getting him into trouble! He is taken by pirates and worked as their slave.  He cooks for them and they love that but he is supposed to be training in Rude Remarks and that is just not something he can do!

What will happen in this pirate adventure to Horrendo and his inability to be impolite?

I received a free e-copy of this book from the publisher in order to write this review I was not otherwise compensated.

About the Book

A riotous adventure of pirates (and good manners) on the high seas–now available in graphic novel format.

There never lived a boy more polite than Horrendo. Cursed at birth, he can speak only kind words while everyone else spews insults. But as his twelfth birthday approaches, Horrendo’s good manners get him into trouble.

Each year, pirates come to the village and abduct all the twelve-year-old boys as their slaves. Despite training in Herculean Headlocks, Rude Remarks, and Oar Throwing, Horrendo and his friends are captured and worked to the bone aboard the ship. Horrendo endures with typical good grace, winning over the pirates’ stomachs with his delectable cooking–but enraging the heartless Captain.

Adapted from Anna Fienberg’s acclaimed story, this deliciously entertaining graphic novel sparkles with wicked wordplay and colorful characters. Remy Simard’s action-packed illustrations make Horrendo’s Curse a delight for readers of all ages.
