**5 Star REVIEW~~"CAPTAIN NO BEARD"~Award Winning author CAROLE P. ROMAN**


      Captain No Beard enjoyed living on an island with his mates. After all, they were also his friends, and after a while, he treated them like family. Mongo, Linus, Fribbit, and Hallie were a fine crew. Each crew member had a special quality about them, and they were all willing to learn from their great leader, Captain No Beard, who considered his job to be hard work. Mongo was a pro at climbing, Linus was their automatic microphone with his loud roars, Fribbit loved to flop, and Hallie was a fine first mate.

A scary storm began to brew with loud thunder, and everyone aboard pitched in to help Captain No Beard make sure all was safe. He rescued Hallie, commanded directions to keep a clean ship, and delivered the right answers in his best pirate voice.

Suddenly, a voice was heard from the mysterious sea, and a mermaid appeared with yummy treasure. Captain No Beard reminded Alexander to clean up the mess, before enjoying the golden treats.

Award Winning author Carole P. Roman delivers an exciting, appealing story to young readers, that is not only funny, but educational as well. Through her creative imagination, the author pens a magical, delightful adventure with colorful characters as the story comes to life. The stunning illustrations are inviting as they compliment this fun-filled adventure aboard the Flying Dragon, while sailing across deep, dark seas. Children will become curious as they ask questions, while learning lessons about teamwork, and responsibility. In addition, this charming story also encourages young readers to practice reading skills, as well as participating in group discussions. "CAPTAIN NO BEARD:An Imaginary Tale Of A Pirate's Life" is as heartwarming as Free Willy 3, as hilarious as Shrek The Third, and as entertaining as The Lion King. Highly recommended to teachers, parents, and child-care providers!

      Hendrik Van Oordt, author of nine books and illustrator, delivers a mysterious adventure that entertains, from beginning to end. Three young teenagers are sent off to live on an Island with their aunt and uncle, while their parents deal with moving.

To make matters worse, they found nothing that interested them to grab their attention, until they heard rumors about 'Whale House.'

Frank, Dana, and Martin had no idea what they were in for, after discovering a hidden secret.

The story is mysterious, exciting, and suspenseful as the colorful characters come to life. "THE MYSTERY OF WHALE HOUSE" is as captivating as The Goonies, as thrilling as The Monster Squad, and as entertaining as The Lost Boys.  Enjoyable, and highly recommended to young adults!
