Adventures with Darian: A Pirate at Sea See by J.L. Rames is the story of a young boy with a prosthetic eye. Darian wishes to enter the Most Piratical Pirate Contest, for which he'll need a treasure, but unfortunately, he only has a trunk full of junk. He decides to sail the seas with his crew, but with only one seeing eye Darian faces many dangers as the natural elements and environment threaten to damage his one eye. Darian also needs help to focus on reading the map with one eye. To complete his mission and be in time for the Seven Seas Celebration to enter the competition, he'll need to use what he has and make the best of it, and he hopes it'll be enough.

Adventures with Darian by J.L. Rames is a delightful, entertaining, and inspirational story about a young pirate who dreams of winning the Most Piratical Pirate Contest with whatever he has at his disposal. It's a story about perseverance against all odds. Darian learns to overcome his challenges by using what he has, his trunk of junk, to the best of his ability to achieve his goals. He realizes he has everything he needs to sail the stormy seas and win. He learns that his prosthetic eye won't stop him because he'll do things differently until he gets it done. It's a feel-good and meaningful story with beautiful illustrations that are entertaining and refreshing. I enjoyed reading this heartwarming story.
