Daniel Laurence dreams of adventure on the high seas from his home in Minnesota. Mr. Laurence is a parent, an elementary educator, and a children's reading specialist. This is his first book.From School Library Journal:
Kindergarten-Grade 3-This appealing easy-reader offers a high-seas adventure and themes of friendship and individuality. Captain is quite concerned with proper pirate behavior, while Matey is more of a gentle soul. This unlikely pair disagree on everything from their new parrot's name to which tune to sing during deck-swabbing. However, they always manage to find a compromise. They rescue an intimidating, tattooed fellow, who irritates Captain and impresses Matey with his superior display of pirate skills. Upon his departure, the visitor leaves them a treasure map, which leads to another argument about what they'll do with the spoils. Captain wants a bigger sailing ship, while Matey dreams of a cottage by the sea. Is this the end of their pirating days? Friendship wins out in this charming tale. Mu-oz's cartoons depict two typical, though far-from-fierce-looking pirates. They are particularly amusing when contrasted with their big, burly visitor.
