"Roman charms with an imaginative,whimsical picture book that will entertain even the oldest pirates." Kirkus Review
My Review:

Captain No Beard is a spirited tale of  imagination. Alexander and his cousin Hallie are really sweet, delightful children that have a very vivid imagination. In the beginning of the book you can't even tell that this is a story based on a little boys imagination. The Author has done an excellent job of tricking us and getting us to believe in what the main characters are doing and seeing.
Captain No Beard is a fascinating tale were a little boy, Alexander and his first mate, Hallie, have a wild pirate adventure all in the comforts of Alexander's bedroom. Complete with a climbing mast monkey and a loud mouth lion.
This is a very colorful active book full of a child's thoughts and playfulness.
