Review: Captain No Bread an Imaginary Tale of a Pirates Life by Carole P. Roman

 A child's imaginative journey on his pirate ship with his four trusty companions. Reviews for Captain No Beard "Roman charms with an imaginative, whimsical picture book that will entertain even the oldest pirates." - Kirkus "My kids loved shouting “Shiver Me Timbers” and “Swab the Deck” along with the crew. The story of Captain No Beard and his crew is exciting, engaging and lots of fun! The bold, colorful pictures enhance the experience of the pirate adventure that Roman takes you on from the moment you begin reading until the very end of the story." - "The illustration in the book is just as fun with vibrant colors, lovable characters and a world of imagination. It’s easy for kiddos to engage their imagination and become part of this fun story from beginning to end." - "lovely intonation when read aloud, and the simple, understandable story also carries a more complex, clever subtext that will allow for educational discussions; hilarious and a pleasant opportunity to teach children about the nuances of words and their layers of meaning; the characters take great delight upon using the phrases correctly; children will, too." - Kirkus

We received this book to give an honest review.
There is just something about Captain No Beard and his crew that we love. K loves pirates and so reading about the adventures that Captain No Beard has is fun for him. I really enjoyed how some pirate talk was in this book, in the others that we have read there haven't been as much besides the word "Aye". In this one we get Shiver me timbers and we find out what that means. And Swab the Deck! I started telling K to swab the deck and he looked me like I was crazy. The illustrations within the story are just so awesomely done and it fits the story perfectly. K loved the whole book and asked me to read it again. I loved the ending and how they saw a 'mermaid' with treasure. Great story to read, I highly recommend this.
