"My 4 year old daughter loves all things pirate. She found this story exciting and quite captivating. Seeing Boris cope with all situations and have different emotions, even very sad times seems to be the reason my daughter asks for this story over and over. She always says 'sometimes you need to cry' when I finish reading this book."show more
