Join Captain No Beard and his crew as they travel the seven seas (or, at least, one very dangerous one). Meet Mongo the mast-climbing monkey, Linus the loud-mouthed lion, and Fribbit the floppy frog as they learn what it means to be a pirate. Captain No Beard and his cousin, Hallie, are off on an adventure to learn pirate lingo, learn what to do in a storm, and how to swab decks. But no greater peril faces them then the coming of a dangerous and unknown mermaid! What will happen to Captain No Beard and his crew? Well, you’ll just have to read to find out, won’t you?
I was sent a copy of Captain No Beard: An Imaginary Tale of a Pirate’s Life in exchange for sharing my honest opinion about the book. My honest opinion is that this book makes for a fun read aloud. My kids have enjoyed reading and looking through it on their own and this title has received a fair amount of attention since its arrival at our house. A quick glance at Amazon shows that there is a second title in this series entitled Pepper Parrot’s Problem with Patience. The second title seems to be more focused on teaching children a virtue. This first title exists merely to get the reader’s imaginative juices flowing with the telling of a good story.
We’ve enjoyed this one and send our thanks to the author, Carole Roman, for sending a copy of this our direction in exchange for our opinion.
