Frank Richard Stockton (April 5, 1834 – April 20, 1902) was an American writer and humorist, best known today for a series of innovative children's fairy tales that were widely popular during the last decades of the 19th century. Instead, he humorously poked fun at greed, violence, abuse of power and other human foibles, describing his fantastic characters' adventures in a charming, matter-of-fact way in stories like "The Griffin and the Minor Canon" (1885) and "The Bee-Man of Orn" (1887).

The story of Kate Bonnet is more adventure than romance, with good characters, and bad characters, and disappointing characters, and silly characters, and wicked characters.

Kate Bonnet is the daughter of a foolish farmer, who is bored with his life (and his new wife) and decides on a whim to become a pirate. Kate, when she hears of her father's naughtiness, sets off to find him and set him to rights. In the meantime she leaves behind the dull personage of the man who loves her, and makes friends with a stout young man and his mother, who travel with her. Kate's father, being the fool he is, falls prey to the wiles and terror of the infamous Blackbeard (yes, he plays a cameo here). Kate gets fallen in love with by a vengeful Naval officer who plans to capture her foolish pirate father and hold him hostage to force her hand in marriage. Kate herself sails on a pirate ship to find her father. Her father is unrepentant.

I could go on, but as you can see this story can be summed up in a rather dull paragraph of blunt sentences.

It's a cute story, something that Disney might catch on to and spruce up, but really not as interesting as I imagined it would be.

Marirne
it was a pirate book that a child could read without censorship. entertaining but not a romance novel per say.

This book was awful!!! Very Boring!!! And not worth reading. The whole dialogue dragged out and the ending was sooooo stupid. Because in the end there was no real romance of the pirates daughter!!! DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME WITH THIS BOOK.
Very hard to read. Hard to follow the story. I did finish the book but was glad when it ended.
