A Must For Elementary Teachers and Parents who read to kids!


I thoroughly enjoyed the imagination brought to life by the author and illustrator! I teach many ELL students who just don't have the "words" for things mentioned in the story. Students will have the freedom to explore and grasp the plot and details either at their own pace, or guided be the read to me option. Beautiful way to start a discussion about values, families and friendship.



The graphics, animations and color are amazing and greatly enhance the reading experience. My grand kids are going to love this book! Very well done!

Shiver me timbers!
