Mrs Abdul and the girls are off pirating for a week. And guess who's been left holding the baby? None other than the hairiest, scariest bunch of pirates ever to sail the seven seas. Captain Abdul and his fearsome crew must turn their hooks to babysitting, and soon The Golden Behind - a ship to strike fear into the brave - is nothing more than a floating nursery! Ooh-arrgh!

The incorrigible Colin McNaughton sneaks a baby aboard a pirate ship with hilarious results in this kid-pleasing saga of pseudo-sword-fighting, smelly diapers, and hide-and-seek on the high seas. Ooh-argh, ha-har!From the Author:
COLIN McNAUGHTON: "Of all the books and characters I’ve created, the Captain Abdul stories are my favorite – the most fun to write and draw. One day I was out and about on the streets of London when I heard a mother refer to her son as ‘my little treasure,’ and I thought, ‘Hmmm.’ So the title of this book came first and the story, about fathers and sons, just flowed out. I enjoyed every minute of it – every scatchy hatchy pen-an-ink mark, every splash of watercolor, every ‘AVAST!,’ every ‘OOOH-ARRGH!,’ every last ‘HA-HAR!’ I hope it shows."
