Captain Monty Takes the PlungeBook - 2017
Monty the Malodorous is a daring pirate. He is brave. He is bold. He is 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 realizes 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? Children will love Monty the pirate (who's actually a dog!), and readers with their own fears of learning to swim will relate to his difficulties.
