Book Launch: Captain Monty Takes the Plunge – Jennifer Mook-Sang – Oct 14, 2017

Plunge into Reading with Captain Monty

BURLINGTON, ON, August 5, 2017 — Jennifer Mook-Sang is pleased to announce the October 3rd release of Captain Monty Takes the Plunge (Kids Can Press), a picture book for ages 3 to 7.

 Synopsis of Captain Monty Takes the Plunge

Monty the Malodorous is a daring pirate. He is brave. He is bold. He is feared by all who sail the six or seven seas. But Monty has a secret — he can’t swim. He never goes in the water, and he certainly never takes a bath. “Real pirates don’t bathe,” he says. “Yar-har-har!” But things change when he meets Meg. His heart goes ka-thunk and he tumbles head over boot heels in love. When Meg’s life is put into peril, Monty realizes he’s the only one who can jump in the ocean to save her. He is faced with a terrible dilemma — is his love strong enough to overcome his fear?
