No delicate princess she! It's a pirate's life for Portia. Having rescued herself from an arranged marriage and the potentially boring life of a palace princess, Portia must now rescue her cousin, Princess Peppermint, from the same fate. The fun begins when Captain Portia and her able crew are captured during the rescue and must outwit the evil Count Nasty. Kate Byers reads with flair, capturing the personalities of the characters and the excitement of the story. Count Nasty snarls out his threats while Portia calmly commands her crew. Byers's pacing is perfect for enjoying this romp either as a listening experience or by following along with the book. Byers's dramatic reading is sure to keep young listeners engaged.
