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 *

“Hit and miss”

This is a case of a joke running out of steam. It's funny but not enough to keep up the momentum of the full, albeit short, book. It's just trying too hard to be funny and for me the humour begins to miss... More
