Review: The Crew Goes Coconuts! by:Carole P. Roman

The Crew Goes Coconuts!: A Captain No Beard Story Volume 6
About the Book:
There is a storm brewing on the Flying Dragon, and it's not about the weather. When the crew finds themselves parched and not enough juice to go around, blame falls on Matie the goat, Hallie's friend. Divided, they square off, ready for a fight and Captain No Beard must teach his crew that not only is bullying wrong, they must learn to value and respect each and every member of the crew. Watch the crew of the Flying Dragon learn an important lesson about being a true friend.

About the Author:
Award winning author Carole P. Roman is a former teacher turned businesswoman. She has successfully run a family business with her husband that employs close to five hundred people. Her most favorite job is being grandmother to her many grandchildren. Roman has two wonderful sons and hit the jackpot in the daughter-in-law department. She currently lives on Long Island with her husband.

My Review:
 Captain No Beard and his crew are at it again, they are off on another exciting adventure! This one is all about bullying. The crew starts to bully the newest crew member Matie the goat only to  be told that the Captain will not allow such a thing on his ship and they must respect and value the fellow crew members. The crew learn a valuable lesson that day in the art of friendship.

 Nowadays bullying seems to run rampant and we need more people willing to step up and step in to do something about it. The illustrations in the book are beautiful as they always are with one of Carole Roman's books and the story is fitting and perfect for today's kids.

**Disclosure**  This book was sent o me free of charge for my honest review from the author.
