The Little Captain

The adventures of an indestructible lit- tle hero!

Who the little captain actually is, and where he came from, nobody knows. But he controls his ship like no other, standing straddllegged at the helm of the Never Leak, sailing with every wind that blows. With his friends he sails the seven seas, encountering all kinds of strange adventures.

Lemniscaat has gathered three separate stories about the little captain into an omnibus: The big little captain.

Rights sold to Greece, Spain and Turkey.

Reviews

‘The adventures of the little captain have not yet lost any of their charm, written as they are in sentences that beg to be read aloud'
