From the creator of Binky the Space Cat, a hilarious story about an unconventional little pirate. Ahoy there! Will this sweet little pirate find his place aboard The Rusty Squid or will he be forced to walk the plank? When Small Saul joins the crew of The Rusty Squid, it doesn't take long for the other pirates to notice something is very different about this tiny fellow. He was born to sing sea shanties, bake pineapple upside down cakes and redecorate, not to hold a sword and plunder. Being rough and tough just isn't in his nature. Small Saul learned at Pirate College that pirates only care about three things: their ship, being tough and lots and lots of treasure. Can Small Saul show these ruffians that despite his gentle spirit, he's worth his weight in gold? With treasure chests of laughs, Small Saul's high-seas adventure is a light-hearted celebration of individuality, perseverance and being true to one's self.

Young pirates will love Small Saul. Saul loves the sea and after being rejected by the Navy, he signs up for Pirate College. Once he graduates and gets a job on a real pirate ship, the other pirates notice that he does things a little different. When Saul was gone, the other pirates, even the captain, miss him. They realize that although Saul wasn't your typical pirate he was certainly special in his own way.

This story has a great message behind it. One of my favorite lines in the book is "Just like treasure, Small Saul was rare." What a powerful line.

I will be using this one in my classroom this year.
Good Points
Great to point out that everyone is important, even if they do things a little different.
