Ching Shih

Written by Christina Leaf

Storming aboard a government trade ship, Ching Shih and her band of followers demand payment—or else! The traders soon come to fear Ching Shih, paying her for passage through the pirate-infested waters of the South China Sea. In this high-interest graphic title, readers will learn how Ching Shih became a pirate so fierce that even the government stood down to her power. They’ll discover her real-life feats through engaging dialogue and sharp illustrations, as well as historical quotes, a timeline, and a map.
