Captain Monty stinks. Not at being a pirate, he’s great at that. But he smells really bad. While the other pirates bathe in the ocean, Month stays aboard because he can’t swim. While gazing through his telescope one day, Monty spies a beautiful, curvy, tattooed mermaid, Meg. Their relationship grows quickly; Monty tells corny jokes and Meg shows him the best fishing spots. Monty is impressed by her intelligence; her superb swimming has him swooning. Monty asks her to have dinner with him, but his stench causes her to lose her appetite. One afternoon as he waves to Meg, a huge tentacle reaches up and pulls her down under! With no one around, Monty must take the plunge to try and save her. Together they tickle the beastly octopus into submission. Meg swims Monty to shore and now that he smells fresh and clean, asks him to dinner. He says yes, as long as she will teach him to swim. With illustrations that are fondly reminiscent of Richard Scarry and an entertaining text, this title is sure to be popular. VERDICT Make room on your shelves for a book that works just as well for storytime as it does for one-on-one readings.—Emily E. Lazio, The New York Public Library
