AHOY, MATEY! When Captain Braid Beard and his crew invite Jeremy Jacob to join their voyage, it’s the swashbuckling time of his life! No vegetables or table manners, and you get to have sword fights whenever you want. But Jeremy soon misses things like getting tucked into bed, goodnight kisses and story time.
A heave-ho, blow-the-man-down tale you won’t want to miss!
