We received this book to give an honest review. I know we have said it before, but we love Captain No Beard and the moral of his stories. Captain No Beard is a young captain with his mates on board. We learn the saying about a red moon at dawn and what it means. And we follow the Captain and his mateys to Snake Island via a treasure map and they find a treasure that is awesome. No not gold doubloons even though those are awesome treasures but something more that is perfect! An awesome read for all ages.
Captain No Beard and his crew are off on a new adventure. This time in search of treasure on Snake Island. While watching the sunrise, Polly the Parrot reminds them," Red sky in morning, Sailors take warning." Soon the rain starts pouring. Polly explained she learns from reading! Wonderful, fun and exciting. The little in your life will love this book. Treasures, snakes and rain, what's not to like, right? You will be surprised at what the treasure really is though.

The Treasure of Snake Island - A Captain No Beard by Carole P Roman is the newest edition to an emerging new, vibrantly illustrated children's book based on the popular pirate theme. Watercolor art perfectly accompanies the nautical pirate action. The art is fast paced like the untamed adventurous seas where the stories take place. This story includes Captain No Beard and the other familiar heroes of the original book. During the story children will learn an important message about the treasures that books hold. Books- often overlooked, are given a prominent place as they are equated with mystery and with valuable treasure.

Roman has mastered the plot twist adding an element of surprise that even parents will appreciate as they read this story to their children. This inviting new book series introduces children to the friendly pirate named Captain No Beard, and his frigate as well as the host of friendly talking animals. This is the perfect introduction to pirate literature - like pirate literature 101 complete with the typical pirate talk and pirate cliches. There is a pirate reference on every page of these books such as the Jolly Roger, crossbones flag, pirate slang and nautical terminology . The consistency of this series will appeal to young children. The surprise ending will capture the readers attention and encourage their imaginations. This book encourages role playing- where one's bedroom can become a new world, and blankets can become an ocean.
