Cap’n Rex & His Clever Crew by Henry L. Herz

What a fun book! Especially if you know someone who can read it in a Somerset accent.

Cap’n Rex is a T-Rex pirate who is on a quest to find treasure. Just like any good captain, Cap’n Rex has a capable crew behind him. Unfortunately, his crew easily gets discouraged by the obstacles they face.  With constant encouragement, his crew is able to find creative ways to overcome the problems and continue their treasure hunt.

When Georgie and I read this book, I asked her what Cap’n Rex should do with the treasure once he had found it. Without hesitation she suggested he should share it with the crew. Lesson learned!

Written by Henry L. Herz, illustrated by Benjamin Shipper and published by Sterling Children’s Books.
