#Review: A Flag For the Flying Dragon by Carole P. Roman/Illustrated by Bonnie Lemaire #Giveaway #CarolePRomanBooks #atozchallenge

It's business as usual on the Flying Dragon. Their mission is to find a flag for the ship. Captain No Beard sighs, "Being a captain is hard work," as he watches the busy crew preparing the vessel for their next adventure. 

Polly is giving out pretzels; Linus is polishing a lamp. Matie is cracking coconuts, Cayla is stuffing holes, and Hallie is swabbing the deck. High overhead, trouble is brewing, and it is not the weather. 

Mongo does not want any help from the newest crew member, and it is creating a hurricane of a mess on board. 

The team must come together and find a task that will fit Zachary without interfering with their own fun. On the way, they acquire a flag that will unite them as both friends and crew.

Join the problem-solving crew of the Flying Dragon as they find a flag for their ship and a job for Zach.

My review:

As with all books that I have read from the Captain No Beard Series, the author has a lesson to tell. Working together for the common good is the key here.

This time, the crew is working on finding the newest member, and Grandson of the author, Zach, a job. At the same time, Captain No Beard is wishing for a brand new crew flag. What is a captain to do when his crew is upset and there is a problem? Work it out!

In the end, after a few mishaps, the crew manages to find Zach the perfect job and the perfect flag! What is it you say? Well, my readers, you would just have to get a copy of the book and find out.

I love this series and I am certainly a fan of this author. I love the tales and lessons each book brings. The illustrations always bring a liveliness to the books which make each book a lovely work of art as well as a good story.

Another 5 stars from me for this author!
