Of all the Pirates books, this one made me laugh the most. When the Pirate Captain is humiliated at the Pirate of the Year awards he exiles himself to St Helena to become a bee keeper. As such, there's not much "adventuring" and the book is much more about the special character that is the Pirate Captain. I think we get a far more sustained look at the essence of the man - and it's hilarious. Only a rival as self important as Napoleon can really bring out the best and worst in our hero!
Warning, this book has a number of "spit out your tea" funny moments - be careful reading it in public!

I love the pirates and their adventures. The pirate books are very silly, almost as stupid as The Da Vinci Code but not intended to have any basis in reality. I enjoy reading them on boring plane journeys but squeals of laughter can annoy fellow travellers.
