About the Book

After reading his favorite book about a pirate boy, Danny wonders what would happen if he sailed away on a pirate ship. Luckily, his mother reassures him that she would find him, even if she had to ride on a dolphin, battle sea monsters, and wield a bottle of magical pirate-shrinking spray to do it!

Young readers will love this adventurous and ultimately reassuring tale of a mother’s love.
