Meet the Mates

Admiral Wright:
A British Admiral who has seen it all and with a little encouragement he’ll tell it all. A born storyteller, he loves nothing more than sharing his vast repertoire of absolutely true Heroical Storicals. The Admiral discovers heroes on his world travels aboard the Shiny Shiny Silver Ship. The energetic and enthusiastic Admiral brings to homeport his mysterious streamer trunk packed full with collectibles gathered during his adventurous quest for heroes. The Admiral can’t wait to share his latest Heroical Storical with a rapt audience because he’s enthralled with the stories of the mighty deeds and inspiring character of the heroes "he may get carried away by his own rhetoric at times, but it’s hard to blame him" he’s just crazy about Heroical Storicals!

Captain Perry Parrot is the Admiral’s beloved sidekick, who travels with him in search of heroes. Wacky and quirky the Captain is quick to add his bird’s eye-view to the Admiral’s grand pontifications. The Captain may squabble with the Admiral and offer a different opinion but he remains steadfast in his loyalty and commitment to be the Admirals first mate and true friend.

Willie Venturelyis thoroughly disinterested in school, and Miss Dullywinkle’s boring history lessons, until he meets the Admiral and Captain. Curious adventurous and always ready for action, Willie is the perfect student for the enthusiastic, fun, and inspiring Admiral and Captain!

Tillie Venturely is well meaning but exasperating to her brother Willie. She can’t stop herself from reminding him to pay attention and mind his lessons at school. Tillie learns there are other ways to learn than sitting at a desk and reading a book, thanks to the Admiral and Captain!
