4.0 out of 5 stars Ahoy Maties! July 17, 2013
By Ima Bratt
Ahoy Maties! Little pirates will love this series by Carole P. Roman. Filled with fun characters and colorful illustrations, these books are sure to bring out the playful side in kids and adults alike! My favorite thing about Carole’s whimsical stories is that they encourage kids to use their imagination- Remember when there were no special toys or props needed to experience the magic of being a child? When a plain every-day bed could become a pirate-ship on the high-seas? Carole does. So be brushin’ up on your pirate lingo land-lubbers and dive on in!
#1- Captain No Beard- An Imaginary Tale Of A Pirate’s Life- Winner of the Pinnacle Book Achievement Award
Meet Captain No Beard and his crew; First-Mate (and cousin) Hallie, Mongo the mast climbing monkey, Linus the loud-mouthed lion and Fribbet the floppy frog as they set sail on their pirate-ship the “Flying Dragon”. My personal favorite, filled with imagination, adventure, pirate-speak and cookies! No moral here, just pure fun!
#2- Pepper Parrot’s Problem With Patience
Sometimes it’s hard to be the “new hand on deck”, especially if you feel like you are different from everyone else. But before long the crew of the “Flying Dragon” help their new friend Pepper to see that, with some work and a little patience, we can all learn how to live up to our true potential.
#3- Stuck In The Doldrums- A Lesson In Sharing
Even the best of friends (and crew-mates) have trouble getting along sometimes, but in the end they always find a way to come back together- especially if they’re fighting a common enemy like a giant squid!
