This is an excellent collection of short stories aimed at boys. Full of mysteries and action, this will keep the reluctant reader boy in your life will love. Especially strong in the collection is the story named Pirate (by the great Margaret Peterson Haddix), which tells the tale of a 16 year-old Somali on his first pirate raid.

Worth picking up.
