Captain Barbosa and the Pirate Hat Chase

By Jorge González
Illustrated by Jorge González

A sweet wordless pirate adventure, with lots of slapstick and a surprise ending. A great pick for first-time graphic-novel readers.

In this wordless graphic novel, Captain Barbosa sails the seven seas with his trusty shipmates: a fly, an alligator, and an elephant. When a seagull steals his treasured hat, Barbosa and his crew give chase through a nasty storm. When Barbosa reaches the seagull’s island, he finds the hat—along with a nest of baby seagulls—and decides even pirates can forgive and forget.

  • Positive message and animal appeal
  • Unique pastel-and-colour-pencil artwork
  • Great for improving a developing reader's visual literacy
