Pirate’s Perfect Pet
By (author) Beth Ferry; Illustrated by Matt Myers
Big, brave Captain Crave can check off most items on the Perfect Pirate checklist. He has a pirate ship, an eye patch, courage and daring, and more. Only one thing is missing: Captain Crave doesn’t have a pet. Arrr! Shuck me an oyster and set sail for land! The captain and his crew race and chase critters of every size and shape, from the beach to a farm to the zoo to a pet shop, causing a commotion wherever they go. But can the search party really stumble upon the most perfectly perfect pet for Captain Crave?
