It is 1837, and for the luxuriantly bearded Pirate Captain and his rag-tag pirate crew, life on the high seas has gotten a little dull. With nothing to do but twiddle their hooks and lounge aimlessly on tropical beaches, the Captain decides it's time they had an adventure. A surprisingly successful boat raid leads them to the young Charles Darwin, in desperate need of their help. And so the pirates set forth for London in a bid to save the scientist from the evil machinations of a diabolical Bishop. There they encounter grisly murder, vanishing ladies, the Elephant Man - and have an exciting trip to the zoo.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Gideon Defoe definitively puts the "Ho ho!" - and, indeed, the "Yo!" - into pirating' * Caitlin Moran *
'A short, deliriously funny novel about incredibly stupid pirates and ham . . . I've had to grow a luxuriant beard to conceal the grin that's been compromising my dignity since I read it' * Ardal O'Hanlon *
'Hilarious. Destined to become a classic of pirate comic fiction' * Eric Idle *
'Very funny, very silly and highly original' * Esquire *
