About the Book, Captain Deadeye: The Bully Shark
Ahoy there, matey! Fourth Grader John goes to Oceanside Elementary and, because of his lazy eyes, he is bullied by a boy who calls himself “Shark.” Shark gives him the hurtful nickname “Deadeye John.” To cheer him up, John’s mom sends him on a treasure hunt where he discovers a magical chest full of loot! He finds an eye patch and a pirate hat, and becomes “Captain Deadeye, Master of the Seven Seas.” Join Captain Deadeye on this seafaring pirate adventure where he battles a fierce storm; his nemesis, Captain Blackheart; and a vicious shark all while finding the courage to face his real-life bully at school.
