Award- winning pirate series returns with exciting new adventure about tolerance, teamwork

Captain No Beard: Strangers on the High Seas, Book 4 of the Captain No Beard Series by Carole P. Roman entertains while teaching valuable life lessons

Bethpage, NY – Captain No Beard: Strangers on the High Seas, Book 4 of the Captain No Beard Series by Carole P. Roman is the widely anticipated fourth entry into the award-winning Captain No Beard series. The popular children’s series offers powerful lessons for young readers in an entertaining and engaging way.

Building upon the success of 2012 Kirkus award-winning Captain No Beard: An Imaginary Tale of a Pirates Life and its five-star ForeWord Clarion reviewed follow-up, Captain No Beard: Pepper Parrot’s Problem with Patience, the series’ most recent entry brings readers back aboard the Flying Dragon to join the crew for another day of adventure.

When the Flying Dragon finds itself being pursued by a scary black ship, the crew must race to escape before Barnabus the Scurvy Dog and his crew catch up. However, when they are rescued by an unlikely hero, the crew of the Flying Dragon will learn that they shouldn’t judge a book by its cover.

Teaching young readers the importance of tolerance, Captain No Beard: Strangers on the High Seas uses rhymes and adventure to teach readers an important lesson.  Roman explains that we must value everyone, even if they don’t look like they can help.

Combining fun and education, the Captain No Beard series stresses valuable life lessons and topics such as sharing, teamwork, loyalty and cooperation while providing children with an exciting pirate adventure.

My Thoughts:

Ephraim and I really enjoyed reading this story, he enjoyed the colorful and funny pictures that went along with the story. The story was fun to read for me as well and I was laughing at the end. Although I first thought the story was about Stranger Danger  as well as valuing everyone on your team. Ephraim’s favorite part was the end when the baby turned out to be the hero with her poopy drawers, and I laughed so hard at Captain No Beard’s line to his mom. Very enjoyable book to read with your children or grand children and a great way to help them learn those important life lessons like stranger danger and not judging a book by its cover.

I’d give it a 4 tail swishes, only because I wasn’t clear what life lesson we were reading about.
