When the wind stops blowing, Captain No Beard and his crew, including First Mate Hallie, Linus the Lion, Fribbet the Frog, Mongo the Monkey and Polly the Parrot, are stuck on a desert island. Maroon with nothing to do, they begin to play and enjoy themselves. However, Captain No Beard has other ideas, bossing his crew around and making playtime cheerless for everyone.
Soon, Captain No Beard decides he has had enough and storms off. When his ship is attacked by a giant squid, he realizes he needs his crew more than ever.
Captain No Beard and his crew show young readers that’s it’s important to cooperate and share your belongings. The crew teaches us that if you want to have friends, then you must be a friend too.

Goodness, Mrs. Carole has done it again! I can NOT express how much I love her books! My daughter’s face, to see her smile, as she reads through a book is such a joy to watch.
“Stuck in the Doldrums” is a perfect read and teaches children the importance of sharing, respect and teamwork. Captain No Beard teaches children the value of everyday life, and how to help: sharing, respect, etc. it keeps young ones in-tuned to learning, even when they don’t know it.
The illustrations in the book are amazing, and go well with the story. Of course I will continue to read Carole P. Roman’s books to my children. With that being said, I would recommend this book to you and your family.
