My Review:

Strangers On High Seas is the fourth book in the Captain No Beard series. The author has once again written a action packed adventure that is sure to draw the interest of anyone whether its a child or an adult. These are fun little books that could teach us all a thing or two about getting along with others.
This addition to the series welcomes more people on the crew of the Flying Dragon. We see Cabin Girl  Cayla that gets real close to the edge of the ship to admire the dolphins.
It's not long before we are also introduced to Bamabas, the scurvy dog which just happens to be the captain of another ship called Shark Bait which is bearing down on them. And this ship doesn't look very friendly at all. But soon the newest crew member steps up to help her fellow crew members in a tale that is ure to leave you laughing.
I loved how this book ended. I was laughing so hard I was in tears.
