Description

 

See below for English description.

Petit Paul n'est pas un pirate ordinaire. Non seulement est-il haut comme trois pommes, mais il donne des biscuits et des plantes à ceux dont le navire vient d'être pillé par ses camarades pirates! Petit Paul a un tatouage de lapin et il sait même faire un succulent renversé à l'ananas! Ce petit pirate n'est pas un dur à cuire et il n'est définitivement pas comme les autres, mais que diraient les membres de l'équipage si le capitaine décidait de jeter Petit Paul par dessus bord? S'ennuieraient-ils de lui?

 

When Small Saul joins the crew of The Rusty Squid, it doesn't take long for the other pirates to notice something is very different about this tiny fellow. He was born to sing sea shanties, bake pineapple upside down cakes and redecorate, not to hold a sword and plunder. Being rough and tough just isn't in his nature.Small Saul learned at Pirate College that pirates only care about three things: their ship, being tough and lots and lots of treasure. Can Small Saul show these ruffians that despite his gentle spirit, he's worth his weight in gold? With treasure chests of laughs, Small Saul's high-seas adventure is a light-hearted celebration of individuality, perseverance and being true to one's self.

Original title:Small Saul
