Description

Anything but a parrot! Captain Pepper wants a pet. He wants to be different...he wants to be famous...so a boring old parrot just won't do. The fiery captain sets his pirate crew to find the perfect pet. They try a hippopotamus, a monkey and a leopard - each with hilariously disastrous results. Finally, they alight upon a python and Captain Pepper is delighted! But the last laugh is on him when his not so cuddly companion has him for dinner! At last his browbeaten crew can sail home in peace. The ideal blend of fun, identifiable characters and strong storyline, with a motley crew of pets and pirates, make this rumbustious piratical tale perfect for beginner readers.show more
