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)
About the Author
JOHN RYAN was born in Edinburgh, but his lifelong fascination with ships and sailing began when his family moved to Morocco. From his bedroom window in the exotic fishing port of Rabat, he scanned the rolling seas to catch a glimpse of a real pirate ship. He was educated in England and then spent the Second World War fighting in Burma. When he returned to Britain, he met and married his wife Priscilla and worked for a number of years as Assistant Art Master at Harrow School, before beginning his new career as a children's book writer and illustrator, and producer of the Pugwash television programmes.

There aren't any actual ghosts in it, so you don't need to worry about the nervous types. Oh and it's the bad guys who get scared silly in the end, so very satifying. Some explanation might be required for "illuminous paint", but it's nice to see the real term in there rather than being dummed down to "glow-in-the-dark".
The CD is great fun; good clear narrative, cracking sound effects and pretty short (about to the shops). All in all, an excellent gift for a Pugwash fan.
This is a pirate from an age of innocence.
