[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.
[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.]
