Book Review: Strangers on the High Seas: A Captain No Beard Story by Carole P. Roman

*****This review is meant for parents, teachers, and other people that work with children to read.*****

There is a new member to the Flying Dragon crew. She is the youngest person on the crew and Captain No Beard is feeling kind of resentful for having to look out for her. Another ship approaches and they are unsure if they should help them, they are not supposed to talk to strangers after all, or approach animals without being given permission first. Even though the people on the approaching ship are known about through crew members, they have never actually met them. Who (and what) helps the crew next from the approaching ship will be sure to make many giggle!

It was interesting to me to learn how the youngest crew member came on board the Flying Dragon crew. I remember reading about her in another story about Captain No Beard. She wasn’t easily accepted from the Captain but she sure did find her place on the crew, and in an unexpected way! I liked how the members of the crew were aware of their surroundings, with noticing a new ship. It was also interesting to see things from the oncoming ship’s perspective when they were looking at the Flying Dragon ship and crew as they were approaching in one of the pictures. I loved the theme about not talking to / approaching strangers. The more children hear this, the more it will most likely be absorbed into their minds!

My review = 5 out of 5 stars

Disclosure of material connection: I received a free copy of this book from Red Feather Publishing in exchange for an honest review.
