Humorous but rarely laugh out loud hilarious,

This review is from: The Pirates! In an Adventure with Scientists (Kindle Edition)
Quite a fun book, but not as funny as it thinks it is. I like the idea of having pirates with descriptors rather than names (the pirate with the red scarf, the pirate with the wooden leg, the pirate who talks too much etc), as it makes it easier to remember a large cast of characters. The adventure is amusing, the situations humorous, and we all love a happy ending. But I kept waiting for the really funny bits to start, and they just didn't. Humorous fluff but not hilarity.
