Stuck In The Doldrums Review

 Stuck in the Doldrums: A Lesson in Sharing- A Captain No Beard Story

About The Book:
 When the wind stops blowing, Captain No Beard and his crew, including First Mate Hallie, Linus the Lion, Fribbet the Frog, Mongo the Monkey and Polly the Parrot, are stuck on a desert island. Maroon with nothing to do, they begin to play and enjoy themselves. However, Captain No Beard has other ideas, bossing his crew around and making playtime cheerless for everyone. Soon, Captain No Beard decides he has had enough and storms off. When his ship is attacked by a giant squid, he realizes he needs his crew more than ever. Captain No Beard and his crew show young readers that's it's important to cooperate and share your belongings. The crew teaches us that if you want to have friends, then you must be a friend too.
My Review:

There is never a dull moment aboard the ship the Flying Dragon. Come along and join Alexander the captain and first mate Hallie on another fly by the seat of your pants adventure. Where the entire crew gets marooned on a deserted island.
It doesn't take the crew long to find something to do to keep them busy. But its not long before the fun times are interrupted by Captain No Beard and the fact he starts bossing everyone around. Captain No Beard get very impatient with his crew and decides he doesn't need one after all. But something happens that changes his thoughts on the matter real quick.
The Captain No Beard series is a series of books to teach children valuable life lessons. And the author throws in an extra big helping of adventure and action.
I love the moral of the story because getting bossed around is never going to be fun. This book will help people from young to old with being so bossy to others
