Reviews for Jack Plank Tells Tales
RatingComments
5Jack Plank's a lovely fellow, but the fact of the matter is that when it comes to pirating, he stinks. I mean, he gets along with everyone and he's been with his ship, The Avarice, for years and years now. But pirates always have to consider the bottom line and when it comes right down to it, Jack doesn't plunder very well. Not very well at all. So off he goes to find a job. While doing so he settles into a boarding house run by the kindly Mrs. DelFresno, and her daughter, Nina. Each day Jack and Nina go off to find him an occupation, and each day they come back empty-handed. Fortunately, for every job that Jack turns down he's able to tell a rip-roaring story for why becoming a baker, a fisherman, a goldsmith, or a host of other things might be too much of a reminder of his days back on his pirate ship. In the end, Jack has told stories involving everything from a girl raised by seagulls to squid-men, vengeful ghosts, mermaid lovers, and trolls. Fortunately, sometimes the best job is one so glaringly obvious you don't notice it until someone points it out to you.
