Stuck in the Doldrums by Carole P Roman

By Tina

Stuck in the Doldrums is another Captain No Beard story.  In this story the crew is at it again, but when the wind stops blowing, The Flying Dragon gets strandedon a desert island!  With his First Mate, Hallie; Linus the Lion; Fribbet the Frog; Mongo the Monkey; and Polly the Parrot, Captain No Beard has to find a way to use teamwork and understanding to get through the p roblem at hand.  However, when Captain No Beard gets bossy and makes playtime miserable for the crew, he soon finds himself alone and helpless when a giant squid attacks.  Just when it seems like the captain is in over his head, his faithful crew reunites and teaches him an important lesson.  (taken from the back of the book)

As with all the other stories in the Captain No Beard collection, it is a thoughtful way to help teach young children how to share.  It has great illustrations and my own children like to put the story into words with just the pictures.
