Meet Captain Clementine, a little girl who is the captain of her own ship and crew! In this introductory story we learn just who Clementine is (a princess of the high seas!), how her magical necklace leads her to the Star of the Sea (her magical, beautiful ship!), and see her at school (the Royal Barnacle Academy!). When her necklace is nabbed by a naughty gull, and dropped deep into the ocean, a little mermaid girl draws up a plan for finding its owner...and finds a new best friend! “My stars!” Girls and boys – and grownups – will fall in love with strong, smart, brave, and kind Clementine. Adventures await!
