Whales and walruses, that’s not a pirate hat!
Paulina, engrossed in a book about the many types of hats, accidentally wanders onto a pirate ship only and sits on the captain’s hat! When the captain comes up to get his now squashed topper, Paulina, newly knowledgeable about hats, sees that his cap is not the right fit for a pirate ship’s captain!
She leads the crew on a madcap chase around the globe from Borka Borka Island to Polly Golly Canyon to find suitable parts for a faultless topper. Fish bones and flippers! Will they ever find the right pirate chapeau for the captain?
This uplifting, silly story is satisfying for everyone from the swashbuckling to the scholarly and perfect for any parent who wants a phenomenal tale on the power of knowledge found in the pages of a book.
