Beleaguered introverts may give a hearty cheer, but neither the art nor the writing is particularly seaworthy.

Synopsis

Barnaby is the cabin boy for a crew of disreputable and noisy pirates. Poor Barnaby can’t even yell from the crow’s nest, so the other pirates tease him. But one day, while they’re celebrating a treasure haul with an extremely loud party, something truly terrible happens to the rest of the crew. Barnaby shows us that sometimes it is better to watch, listen and think, than it is to shout, stomp and swagger.
