Lucas the Lion is very brave and scares a hunter away from his jungle friends. The hunter is so afraid he leaves his boat behind. Lucas’s friends call it a pirate ship and they want to play on board. But Lucas doesn’t want his friends to know he doesn’t want to play on the boat because he doesn’t know how to swim. Will Lucas learn how to swim before the big birthday bash on the pirate ship? Fear of water and learning to swim are two big challenges all kids must face. The colorful cartoon illustrations will delight preschoolers in this story about how friendship can help overcome fear.
