Who is M.R. Greenjacket?
Some Facts about M.R. GreenJacket
M. R. GreenJacket loved the sea and wrote poem stories during storms and hurricanes. Many times he had no paper to write on and so he would scrawl lines of poetry on the backs of sails and brown paper sacks. Later these were collected and made into a book.
M. R. GreenJacket had a pet shark who would swim to the side of his boat if he sang into the water while blowing bubbles. The shark had a bad tooth and couldn’t chew on one side so he would bring fish for M. R. GreenJacket to cut up and feed back to him. He would not let M. R. GreenJacket look into his mouth and take out the tooth, though.
M.R. GreenJacket & Finny The Flying Fish
During one of his voyages, M. R. GreenJacket encountered Finny the Flying Fish who one night, flew onto the deck of his boat. After this experience, all (10) ten of the Finny stories were written.
All the Finny stories can be sung as well as read because M. R. GreenJacket heard music notes as the wind blew through the rigging of his boat during a raging storm. This so inspired him that he wrote all the Finny stories so that they could be sung as well as read.
