Charlotte Jane the Hearty comes into the world howling. Before long she grows into a little girl who loves playing pirate--perhaps because she lives with what appear to be retired pirate parents. Charlotte Jane engages in swashbuckling sessions, goes on treasure hunts, and seeks out Fantastic Feats of Daring--all the while proving she has formidable oomph. She is not thrilled when bedtime approaches. Her mother tells her that no one can be hearty without a good night's sleep, which Charlotte Jane finds out all on her own when her oomph disappears. She discovers at last that dreams, especially her dreams, are rip-roaring fun.
