Captain Monty Takes The Plunge, Hardback Book


Monty the Malodorous is a daring pirate. He is brave, bold and feared by all who sail the six or seven seas.

But Monty has a secret: he can't swim. He never goes into the ocean - and he never takes a bath. 'Real pirates don't bathe. Yar-har-har!' he says. But things change when he meets a mermaid named Meg. 'Monty's heart went ka-thunk. He tumbled head over boot heels in love.' And, one day, when Meg's life is put into peril, Monty realises he's the only one who can jump into the ocean to save her.

Monty is faced with a terrible dilemma: is his love strong enough to overcome his fear?
