A child's imaginative journey on his pirate ship with his four trusty companions. Reviews for Captain No Beard "Roman charms with an imaginative, whimsical picture book that will entertain even the oldest pirates." - Kirkus "My kids loved shouting “Shiver Me Timbers” and “Swab the Deck” along with the crew. The story of Captain No Beard and his crew is exciting, engaging and lots of fun! The bold, colorful pictures enhance the experience of the pirate adventure that Roman takes you on from the moment you begin reading until the very end of the story." - "The illustration in the book is just as fun with vibrant colors, lovable characters and a world of imagination. It’s easy for kiddos to engage their imagination and become part of this fun story from beginning to end." - "lovely intonation when read aloud, and the simple, understandable story also carries a more complex, clever subtext that will allow for educational discussions; hilarious and a pleasant opportunity to teach children about the nuances of words and their layers of meaning; the characters take great delight upon using the phrases correctly; children will, too." - Kirkus
