I chose this book to read to my little girl, who is 4 yrs old, because she is in love with pirate movies and anything to read about them. However, there are hardly any books or movies that involve females as the main characters in a pirate type setting. This book was exactly what she needed to have read to her. There were no rhyming words in the story line, but the story was short but had several paragraphs on each page. It began with a ship full of drunk, mean, pirates finding a little girl in the ocean on board her own little ship. The mean pirates decided to take her prisoner, in their minds believing that they had a child that had lost her way that was worth lots and lots of money. The little girl, being their captive, tried to tell them to let her go, cause if they knew who her mother was they would be terrified. The mean pirates chose not to believe her and made her work on thier ship. She tore her fingers and hands up by peeling vegtables, scrubbing the deck, shinning the captians boots and so forth. Until, another pirate ship came into view after her being in their captive for a few days. The pirates had no clue that she was writing messages in a bottle and throwing them into the ocean for her family to find, and as she was about to be caught and possibly receive some form of mean, painful punishment, her mother showed up! And all the mean pirates that held her prisoner became very scared, because this little girl's mother was the meanest, toughest pirate on all the seas! Her guards returned her to her mother and they then went to work for her as her mother sent her out on her little ship once again to make the trip she had originally started to her grandmothers home to visit.
