Once he was a blood-thirsty pirate. But one day fate threw him to the Island of Saint Sidor. This event radically changed the old sea raider’s mindset. He dug out his chests with treasures and gave them away to good people. And, conversely, he buried skeletons in the earth. Since then he does not sink others’ ships any more. He learned and became a painter and now he spends all his time on painting pictures and carving out the most beautiful wooden unicorns in the world. And sometimes he writes stories for children – about sea adventures in which phantasy is tightly intertwined with the truest truth. This story is one of those.
