Celebrated children’s author, Michelle Path, introduces us to Crackskull Jack Goes to the Ball:
The crew of The Eye of the Storm aren't happy. Penny, their captain's new wife, is making a few changes on board the ship! Penny is determined to teach these scallywags some manners and make them more civilised by taking them to a ball. Crackskull Jack is pampered with fine clothes and bubble baths by his wife as his crew look on, half shocked, half amused. However, the crew find that they actually quite enjoy the ball. Is it possible that the romantic atmosphere can make Crackskull Jack and Penny fall in love all over again?
I think Michelle is a wonderful author of books for children! I love the care she takes to encourage discussion between child and adult in so many of her books. This book does nothing to change my opinion. It is fun and lighthearted, an interesting story and will delight children of all ages. I think the illustrator has done a wonderful job of portraying all of the characters!
A great story and fun to read! 5 STARS!
Thanks Michelle, I hope this is not the last of Crackskull Jack and Penny!
