Product description

Review

The stories are wonderfully told: simple, clear language that stays on course... and of course the illustrations are so enduringly distinctive, with Pugwash of the late Pavarotti-like proportions.

(Book Magazine)

Pirate tales never date and this one will be popular with young readers who will be enlivened not only by the writing but also by the numerous, vigorous and colourful illustrations. Additionally there is a CD; Jim Broadbent tells the story engagingly and is accompanied by a crew of pirates, and specially composed music and maritime sound effects.

(Ibby Link)

The distinctive illustrations are lively, quirky and full of fun and add to the straightforward and tongue-in-cheek, amusing text. Added to this is the CD of the story narrated by Jim Broadbent's warm tones and accompanied by a very jolly sailor's hornpipe. Certain to be enjoyed by readers and listeners of all ages.

About the Author

JOHN RYAN was born in Edinburgh and spent his early childhood in the UK and Morocco before moving back to England, where he worked for seven years as Assistant Art Master of Harrow School. Captain Pugwash first set sail over 50 years ago as a strip cartoon. Since then he has featured in books, films and theatres all over the world. Before his death in 2009 aged 88, John lived in Rye, Sussex, the home of smugglers in years gone by, with his wife Priscilla, who is also an artist. He has three children and a regular crew of grandchildren.
