Break out the Grog and Custard Creams - arrrrrrrh!,
This review is from: The Pirates! In an Adventure with Scientists (Hardcover)
How funny is this book!!
With jolly escapades and hearty roaring the Pirate Captain leads his crew into another adventure with dubloons a few, hams a plenty, top advice for scientists interested in picking up pretty girls, Victorian hat styles, how to fight Bishops (knowledge of atomic weights an advantage), Darwinish (the practical truth behind the theory) ...and a tricky critique at the end - anyone know the final answer?
Not to mention a valuable lesson in why you should always eat plenty of limes (gin optional) and all your greens.
I tried reading it out loud to my son (who is only 1) but couldn't get through a whole paragraph without giggling. Shout about this book - it's that good!
