Ahoy! The new Pirates of the Caribbean movie has arrived. If you enjoyed my first Spanish reader, Piratas del Caribe y el mapa secreto, you will find my latest pirate reader: La Vampirata equally enjoyable. The Teacher’s Manual is also available under Vampirata in the products menu.
“Deep in the dense Colombian jungle a mysterious emerald has been plundered by an odd band of back-stabbing pirates. An unlikely character, Sara Gomez, is thrust into the action. With fang-like teeth and inexplicable nocturnal walks, she is no longer safe in her vampire-frenzied community. But alas, in 1741 the high seas are just as dangerous as lingering with landlubbers.”
