Captain Cutlass, illustrated by Frank

[Words by Dot]


Captain Cutlass was a fierce pirate.

He was sailing along in his boat powered by a lampshade, when something tapped on the gunwale. It was a tentacle.


He found himself face to face with a hideous sea monster.


Well, this is awkward, thought Captain Cutlass.


In fact it was more than awkward.


The End


[I know the comment about the lampshade is slightly mean, but I am very proud of Frank. His pirate and monster are so full of character and although he has drawn the boat in a rapid, stylised way he has clearly also taken some notice of the different parts of boats – note the cabin at the back of the deck and the bowsprit at the front, as well as the railing. I am a proud mum.]

    I’m blown away by the ugly sea monster. It is WONDERFUL. Note the size of the boat relative to the monster. Note the awesome grinding teeth, which look to me remarkably like the teeth of a lamprey or a leech. Well done Frank.
