[ books pdf ] Small SaulAuthor Ashley Spires – Avengersinfinitywarfullmovie.de

From the creator of Binky the Space Cat, a hilarious story about an unconventional little pirate Ahoy there Will this sweet little pirate find his place aboard The Rusty Squid or will he be forced to walk the plank When Small Saul joins the crew of The Rusty Squid, it doesn t take long for the other pirates to notice something is very different about this tiny fellow He was born to sing sea shanties, bake pineapple upside down cakes and redecorate, not to hold a sword and plunder Being rough and tough just isn t in his nature Small Saul learned at Pirate College that pirates only care about three things their ship, being tough and lots and lots of treasure Can Small Saul show these ruffians that despite his gentle spirit, he s worth his weight in gold With treasure chests of laughs, Small Saul s high seas adventure is a light hearted celebration of individuality, perseverance and being true to one s self

    Small Saul always dreamed of a life at sea but when the Navy wouldn t take him because he was too small he enrolled in pirate school instead Though he doesn t quite fit in, Small Saul give it his all and eventually graduates pirate school At sea, Saul doesn t quite fit in either but he contributes as he can, sprucing up the cabins and cooking tasty treats in the galley The pirates of course don t appreciate his very un pirateness and one day while he s painting the plank they push him overb Small Saul always dreamed of a life at sea but when the Navy wouldn t take him because he was too small he enrolled in pirate school instead Though he doesn t quite fit in, Small Saul give it his all and eventually graduates pirate school At sea, Saul doesn t quite fit in either but he contributes as he can, sprucing up the cabins and cooking tasty treats in the galley The pirates of course don t appreciate his very un pirateness and one day while he s painting the plank they push him overboard It doesn t take long for them to miss him cleaning their ship and cooking for them and they come back for him and Saul sails away with them, Happy to be a pirate in his own special way I really didn t care for this book I think that it brushed off bullying and I also didn t care for the fact that they took Saul back not because they liked him for him but just because they missed his cooking and cleaning.Potential Problems Saul get s a tattoo to fit in it s a bunny This could be a concern for some parents as it is peer pressure to do something many consider inappropriate It also in a way overlooks bullying excusing it as just something they pirates do

    I was not impressed by the story line and my son was upset by how poorly treated Saul was and neither of us were convinced that the pirates would have a change of heart in the way they did Cute story though.
