As funny as the other books, possibly more so!

You have to love a book that starts with Top Trumps of the Romantic poets, a list of illustrations that aren't even in the book and chapter titles so bonkers that you don't care that they aren't the real chapter titles!!!
Let's be honest, you know what you are getting here, a story about the pirate captain ,his sidekicks and an adventure. This time around they are hiring themselves out as erotic adventurers to lower the pirate captains overdraft ( curse those sundries!), answering an advert that takes them to Lake Geneva and a meeting with Byron, Shelley and Mary Shelley....
Gideon Defoe describbes himself as a one trick pony, well having read all of his pirate books, I'll be happy to go along for the ride any time he saddles up the pirates.
