Being a Captain is Hard Work: Captain No Beard is determined to travel to Dew Rite Volcano. He won't listen when Mongo predicts a storm or Linus indicates they are headed in the wrong direction. He insists Polly cook in the galley even though the seas are getting rough. What's a crew to do with a stubborn, know-it-all captain?
Will they convince the captain he is barreling headlong into danger, or will Captain No Beard jeopardize both his safety and the crew’s with his single-minded determination to go where he wants?
This is one of the longer Captain No Beard books from Carol and it is a good analogy story for parenting, that can help a child see that being in charge of multiple people is not easy, and listening to others can help you, even if sometimes you might not want to. This 10th book in the series educates about science as well, as it teaches kids about clouds and the weather. Which means this is a wonderful addition to the series, and one not to be missed.

Once again, Carole comes up with a superb travel book for kids! This book really shows how interesting Egypt's history is and is perfect for explaining many things about Egypt that kids may see on TV or in museums.I think it is one of the more thorough books in the series as well, giving much more info.
