When Sam set sail the sea was fine, but after a terrible storm came by, things turned for the worse. Sea monsters surfaced and stirred the waters up! What will Sam and his crew do?!?
This unique, illustrate your own adventure is a lot of fun. The story is told in rhyme and has a twist ending that will make you giggle. The pages are meant to be illustrated by the reader. They look like old scrolls -
I think that’s pretty cool. The story is cute and the rhyme s pretty good. The story definitely gives ideas for some cool drawings. I think any kid (boy or girl) would like to illustrate this adventure.
NOW – Who’s ready for some silliness?

I am a huge fan of old comics (the artwork is great) and I also LOVE the Three Stooges. I was happy to see that Papercutz put out another volume of a collection of the original Three Stooge comics (originally published from 1954-1972). From making deliveries to boxing to working as lifeguards, the Stooges do it all… badly! As a bonus there is also an interview with author Norman Maurer and comic book artist Joe Kubert (who started drawing comics professionally at age 11!!). This is a book I will read over and over again!
