It's business as usual on the Flying Dragon. Their mission is to find a flag for the ship. Captain No Beard sighs, "Being a captain is hard work," as he watches the busy crew preparing the vessel for their next adventure.

Polly is giving out pretzels; Linus is polishing a lamp. Matie is cracking coconuts, Cayla is stuffing holes, and Hallie is swabbing the deck. High overhead, trouble is brewing, and it is not the weather.

Mongo does not want any help from the newest crew member, and it is creating a hurricane of a mess on board.

The team must come together and find a task that will fit Zachary without interfering with their own fun. On the way, they acquire a flag that will unite them as both friends and crew.

Join the problem-solving crew of the Flying Dragon as they find a flag for their ship and a job for Zach.

  5. Oh, I began to love so many books in my childhood. I guess, "The Little Prince" because it is one of my fondest memories. It touched me much and still does in a way :).

  11. My parents were both teachers so books were very common in our house. There are quite a few books that I remember from my childhood including Dr. Seuss. But, my favorite book was called "Lambert - The Sheepish Lion". I remember this book the best because Lambert was my last name and I felt like the book was made specifically for my family and me.
    Until reading this question that you wanted answered in order to gain entries into the contest, I had not thought of that book in a very long time. Thanks for giving me a moment to look back on good memories of my childhood.
