Captain Saif T. Smew he be a not too nice pirate, on the outside. But deep down he aren’t such a bad person. It will, however, take some doin’ to peel back the layers. In these pirate themed children’s books ye be gonna discover a somewhat religious or christian theme interwoven throughout the pages without being at all preachy. As ye may be aware, the cardinal sins, or the seven deadly sins are mentioned in the Bible and in Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seven_deadly_sins) as lust, gluttony, greed, sloth, wrath, envy, and pride. (I just counted. Aye, that be seven alright!) Captain Smew and his crew will take these temptations one book at a time and attempt to show the reader how to overcome them.
It will be up to Avery and the rest of the crew to redeem such a vile pirate as Captain Saif T. Smew. So tighten yer bootstraps ye lilly livered, grog snarfin’ skirt wearin’ gut aches and we’ll get under way to see what’s in store!
