Gruff Captain is a “yo-ho-ho-and-a-bottle-of-rum” kind of pirate, while gentle Matey would rather sing “Row row row your boat.” Captain wants to name their new parrot Polly. Matey wants to call her Spot. Two seemingly unlikely shipmates are delightful foils in this easy-to-read illustrated book divided into four separate chapter stories. Even though one is called “Captain,” the two are clearly equals and the best of friends in Daniel Laurence’s not-too-sweet, very funny volume. (Ages 4–7)
