    "Captain No Beard: An Imaginary Tale of a Pirate's Life&quo

    "Captain No Beard: An Imaginary Tale of a Pirate's Life" by Carole P. Roman is the introductory book in the Captain No Beard Series. It introduces the main characters—animal and human alike. Those familiar with Roman’s books will notice a slightly different style of art in this book. It looks less like watercolor paint and more like marker. However, the art is still detailed and nice. One picture is even repeated twice in the book. This book has good literary lessons for children. Besides using alliteration, there is a scene where the characters look up a word in the dictionary and appear to be having fun doing so. In terms of teaching kids the value of chores, there is also a part in the story where the “crew” works together to clean the pirate ship. Towards the end of the book, there is a part where the children eat cookies before dinner. How early before dinner is not specified, but I can only hope is it in the afternoon during some sort of snack time as opposed to directly before supper.

    Captain No Beard by Carole P Roman is a new, vibrantly illustrat

    Captain No Beard by Carole P Roman is a new, vibrantly illustrated children's book based on the popular pirate theme. This inviting new book introduces children to the friendly pirate named Captain No Beard, and his frigate as well as the host of friendly talking animals. Basically this is the perfect introduction to childrens pirate literature - like pirate literature 101 complete with the typical pirate talk and pirate cliches with explanations as well. There is a pirate reference on every page and even references to Davey Jones's locker and a mermaid appearance and treasure too. The ending presents a suprise twist that kids will enjoy. There is a hint to this in the subtitle of the book. Personally i feel the subtitle gives away a little too much as to the unexpected ending. As a blogger I received this book from the author for the purpose of writing this review.

    Charming Tale

    Captain No Beard, his first mate and cousin Hallie, and their zany crew sail the mighty seas on his frigate, the Flying Dragon. Each morning the captain gives out the daily orders to his crew. During one adventure the captain and his crew sailed into a massive storm where the first mate was almost washed overboard. Then a mermaid appeared with a bounty of treasure and the crew ended the day with a pirate’s feast. Author Carole P. Roman does a wonderful job taking youngsters through an imaginary day in the life of a pirate. Filled with pirate lingo, CAPTAIN NO BEARD will delight youngsters of all ages on this fanciful journey. The beautiful and vivid illustrations will hold readers’ attention. The cheerful and bold drawings brings the tale to life. This charming tale will entertain and inspire youngsters to undertake their own imaginary voyages. A fun read, colorful drawings, and a rich imagination will make this a favorite at story time. FTC Full Disclosure - This book was sent to me by the author in hopes I would review it. However, receiving the complimentary copy did not influence my review.
