A Flag for the Flying Dragon: A Captain No Beard Story, Volume 9 by Carole P. Roman opens with the ship sailing through the dark waters and the crew busy with their chores. Captain No Beard is looking for Mongo and they find him struggling with Zachary, who is up there trying to reach for the telescope. Captain No Beard asks them both to watch out for storms. Mongo thinks Zachary cannot report anything as he has not yet started talking. They decide that he should help Matie who needs a hand at breaking coconuts, but Zach is ruining everybody’s fun. Captain No Beard knows he has to do something fast and he does not want to hurt anyone’s feelings. How does he solve the problem?

This story, like the rest of the books in the series, has a good message and speaks about getting along with others, acceptance, and finding a solution to problems. The watercolor illustrations are delightful and they make the story entertaining and fascinating. The pictures also connect young readers with the characters. Every lesson and concept woven into the stories in this series is encouraging and they help children learn new things and look at life with a different perspective. I am sure readers will enjoy this story in the series with all the adventures, lessons, messages, concepts, and interesting characters. I did and I am really looking forward to reading more stories and adventures from Captain No Beard and his fun-loving crew.
