A pirate dad explains to his daughter that he loves her more than anything—even the most exciting and valuable aspects of his incredible job. All the sunken treasure in the ocean is worth nothing compared to a father’s love for his daughter. Featuring a kraken, merpeople, King Neptune and a shark who loves to wrestle, this swashbuckling board book celebrates the fathoms-deep bond between a parent or guardian and their child.
