Children are especially vulnerable to feeling the pressures of wanting to be perfect. But a new children’s book by Flibber T. Gibbet, ” Captain LaPlank: The Perfect Pirate” (www.misterflibber.com) will offer them a new perspective about how to handle things that go wrong.

Beautifully illustrated by Rob Foote, this amusing tale of a ship’s captain who refuses to tolerate anything less then perfection helps children realize the foolishness of refusing to see that being perfect also means that mistakes will happen now and then.  This is a colorful and entertaining book that makes a great holiday stocking stuffer, not only encouraging kids to read but also providing them with valuable lessons that can help build self-acceptance as well as self-esteem.
