Captain Barbosa and the Pirate Hat Chase
In this wordless graphic novel, Captain Barbosa sails the seven seas with his trusty shipmates: a fly, an alligator, and an elephant. A seagull steals his treasured hat, and Barbosa and his crew give chase through a nasty storm. When Barbosa reaches the seagull’s island, he finds the hat—along with a nest of baby seagulls—and decides even pirates can forgive and forget.
