Review: Strangers on the High Seas by Carole P. Roman


17894396
When the Flying Dragon gets a new crew member, Captain No Beard soon discovers that every person is valuable in his or her own way. Responsible for his new crew member and baby sister, the Captain becomes unhappy with his situation and begins to think that being a captain is hard work.
However, when the dreaded Barnabas the Scurvey Dog begins to chase the Flying Dragon, the fearless Captain has to put aside his problems and keep everyone safe. In their race to escape, the Captain, his loyal First Mate Hallie, Mongo the Monkey, Linus the Lion, Fribbet the Frpg, and Polly Parrot soon find out that help can come from the most unlikely of places.

The Captain's new award winning adventure is the charming fourth entry in the Captain No Beard children's book series. With a delightful message that teaches children not to judge a book by its cover, this exciting journey will excite young readers as well as teach them valuable life lessons. While stressing the importance of never marginalizing someone because they don't look like they can help or keep up, the adorable crew teaches children the importance of not talking to strangers. Filled with thrilling adventure, this amusing book will teach children the important lessons in their young lives, all while keeping then riveted from the very beginning.

Strangers on the High Seas

We received this book to give an honest review.
We have fallen in love with Captain No Beard and his adventures with his mates. With this story we had a good laugh especially at the end with Captain No Beard's new crew member. Normally with this series you get a moral of something within the story. With this one you don't. But it was great to see that Captain No Beard had to play with his younger sister, (which is awesome because K has a younger sister that he doesn't like to play with often) so it was nice to show him look Captain No Beard is playing with his sibling. Even though he doesn't like it, he still does and he even has fun! 

K loved the whole book but we both laughed when Captain No Beard says, "Mom," he yelled in his best captain's voice, "Report to the poop deck."

If you haven't read this series yet I highly recommend you pick up this series and see what all the laughter and good story telling is about.
