In The Crew Goes Coconuts! A Captain No Beard Story: Volume 6 by Carole P. Roman, readers are taken to a desert island where the ship has dropped its anchor. It is a hot day and the crew is thirsty. They cannot find a pond or a river on the island. They put the blame on Matie the goat, who has had the last juice. They are all angry and Mongo, Polly, and Linus say that they dislike Matie because she talks funny and she smells. Fribbet does not want to take sides. He wants to please everyone. Captain No Beard decides to make the crew say something nice and something not so nice about each of them. They all go to the island because Matie says she has a solution to the drought. What does she do to help the crew to quench their thirst?
This story, like the rest of the books, has a good message for young readers. The illustrations are lively and delightful and readers will love seeing their favorite characters in another setting. Matie the goat is a new character in this story. Do you like her? I like her and the manner in which she helps the crew quench their thirst. The entire series is good for one's personal collection because of the messages it conveys through the stories and the lovable characters that are introduced to young readers. I cannot wait to read the next book in this series to find out what surprises Captain No Beard and his crew have for readers.
