Pepper Parrot’s Problem with Patience: A Captain No Beard Story by Carole P. Roman is the second book of the Captain No Beard series. The book opens with Captain No Beard and his crew of The Flying Dragon cleaning the deck. The Captain asks them to stop as he wants to introduce Pepper Parrot, the new member of the crew. The rest of the crew members want to know what Pepper’s job will be on the ship. They are practicing what has to be done during an emergency and Pepper makes mistakes all the time as she does not know her left and right side. Why does the crew decide to change Pepper’s name to Polly? Read the story to find out!

This story, like the previous one, is entertaining and delightful. The new crew member, Pepper Parrot, is an interesting character and it is nice to observe the way she reacts while practicing drills to handle emergencies. The story conveys good messages of how to get things done using patience and tolerance, and how to keep trying till you achieve your goals. The watercolor illustrations are charming and colorful and they help readers to connect well with all the characters in the story. It is a good book for bedtime storytelling and children will want to learn more about the adventures of Captain No Beard and his crew. Who is your favorite character in this series? I would love to know that. Well, mine is Fribbet Frog. This is definitely a book worth having in one’s personal collection!
