…Sometimes, what we want and need are two different things. That’s the primary lesson at the end of Captain Inkbeard and the Treasure of Monkey Island. Allie Compeau’s adventure story is a blast to read, featuring some jolly pirates led by a hilariously outspoken captain. The characters are vibrant, with little quirks that make them distinct and fun to read. Inkbeard may remind you of Captain Barbosa from the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise. I especially enjoyed his dialogue and relationship dynamics with the crew members of the Coral Conqueror. This fantasy adventure story is bound to be loved by children below the age of ten and even some adults who enjoy pirate adventure tales.
I love this book.
Captain Inkbeard is sooooooo nice. His behavior is so unlike the many bad things you probably heard pirates are known for, which is what makes him such a good model for children and makes this book well worth recommending.
When you think of a pirate, I bet you don’t think of a figure who is selfless and compassionate. Yet that is exactly what you get with him. This is a lesson that never grows old that all children can learn from.
I was especially impressed when instead of opting to be greedy to go off in pursuit of treasure, he and his crew who are just as good-natured and generous, took time out to help some monkeys who, without getting into specifics, let it suffice to say their king had deceived them and stunted their intellectual growth.
