School Library Journal - 04/01/2019 K-Gr 3—Captain Barbosa is a pirate sailing the seas with his ragtag group of animal friends. One day a seagull flies onto their ship and steals the captain's favorite hat. The captain and his crew face sea monsters and treacherous weather in search of the hat, and when they finally find it, a surprise awaits. This wordless graphic novel is fun and easy to follow. The artwork is soft and bright, and the palette is pleasant and works well with the seafaring theme. The characters are expressive and appealing, which adds humor to the narrative. VERDICT Fans of graphic novels and funny adventure stories will enjoy making up the words to this wordless tale.—Ellen Conlin, Naperville Public Library, IL - Copyright 2019 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
