A scary storm began to brew with loud thunder, and everyone aboard pitched in to help Captain No Beard make sure all was safe. He rescued Hallie, commanded directions to keep a clean ship, and delivered the right answers in his best pirate voice. Suddenly, a voice was heard from the mysterious sea, and a mermaid appeared with yummy treasure. Captain No Beard reminded Alexander to clean up the mess, before enjoying the golden treats.
Award Winning author Carole P. Roman delivers an exciting, appealing story to young readers, that is not only funny, but educational as well. Through her creative imagination, the author pens a magical, delightful adventure with colorful characters as the story comes to life. The stunning illustrations are inviting as they compliment this fun-filled adventure aboard the Flying Dragon, while sailing across deep, dark seas. Children will become curious as they ask questions, while learning lessons about teamwork, and responsibility. In addition, this charming story also encourages young readers to practice reading skills, as well as participating in group discussions. "CAPTAIN NO BEARD: An Imaginary Tale Of A Pirate's Life" is as heartwarming as Free Willy 3, as hilarious as Shrek The Third, and as entertaining as The Lion King. Highly recommended to teachers, parents, and child-care providers!
CAPTAIN NO BEARD is the first book in a current four-part series that describes the imaginary adventures of Alexander and his cousin Hallie (also known as the Captain's First Mate). They are joined by Mongo the mast-climbing monkey, Linus the loud-mouthed lion, and Fribbit the floppy frog. This alliteration is just the beginning of the wordy fun.
Author Carole P. Roman has a knack of incorporating word play that teaches children valuable lessons while moving her story along. This is evidenced in such nuances as No Beard always saying "being a Captain is hard work" while others are doing the actual work or when No Beard needs his pirate dictionary to look up what "shiver me timbers" means ("oh my goodness").
Carole P. Roman deftly captures Captain No Beard's story with illustrations she found through a CreateSpace artist. The water colored pictures are warm and cheerful, helping children carry along the story.Read more ›
The author, Carole Roman, has written a wonderful book about a pirate and his crew and their escapades. Alexander is the captain of the ship, 'The Flying Dragon', and he calls himself Captain No Beard. Which, of course, is very true. His crew is made up of the monkey, Mongo, the frog, Fribbit, the lion, Linus, and his cousin Hallie, who he christens, the first mate. Off they go on their adventure, and I will let you discover what occurs. The writing is perfect for children, and they will love the story. Parents and teachers will also enjoy this book, pronouncing all the pirate language. The illustrations are colorful,and bright, depicting Captain No Beard, his crew and their adventures. Your imagination can run wild.
I like this type of book where children show and share their imaginations. Their play involves actions they would like to do, and who wouldn't want to be a pirate? Note: this book was given to me to read and review.

I must say that I enjoyed reading these books. They were quick reads for me and overall, I would give the entire series an A+! In my opinion, this series would make a great gift for children. Each book teaches children valuable lessons such as patience and tolerance; sharing; responsibility and cooperation; being a good friend and what to do when meeting strangers.
