Being a pirate I've had me share of adventure and heard many a tall tale. But what I'm pullin' ye into be more thrillin' than any lit keg o'gun powder I ever had the chance to leap away from. . . .
Abandoned on his ship, the Picaroon, by his no-good bad of scoundrels with no provisions except lots and lots of jelly beans, Captain Redbeard sails off to find a new crew . . . only to have horrible, wretched nightmares. Nightmares that bring about serendipitous disasters that doom the Picaroon. Soon Redbeard finds himself shipwrecked on Fundorado Island, where boundless fantastical adventures await.

Captain Redbeard is well-known to maritime enthusiasts as a pirate who loves his treasure so much he would rather sleep on it than bury it. He has spread his infamous name across the seas, and, though the tale is the subject of much debate, it is rumored he was responsible for the disappearance of all those aboard the storied Mary Celeste. It was his strained relationship with jelly beans, however,that led him into his grandest adventure.Review:
