Amazon Description

After losing his glass eye, pirate Captain Black is at a loss. Not far away, Sandpiper, a pauper, finds a shiny, round object in the road. Peering through what appears to be a glass marble, Sandpiper is amazed by what he sees.

What is a glass eye without its pirate? And what is a pirate without his glass eye? Sandpiper is about to find out—but danger looms, for Captain Black is determined to find his missing eye . . . by hook or by crook!

Robert Priest offers another quirky take on pirate life in this surprising tale of adventure, reflection, and missing treasure.

One Potato Review

While joyously dueling, a salty old dog loses his prosthetic eyeball, which bounces and ricochets into the life of a pauper, who is able to catch a glimpse of the pirate’s “strange and interesting” experiences, and writes a book from what he sees - which the pirate himself finds on the shelves of his local library. “How can this be?” growls the pirate. “And how long will it be before they have me in shackles? Who dares tell the story of this pirate’s life!” Priest dares, with humor and romance.
