As Captain Pugwash and his crew strike up the music for singing practice, Cut-throat Jake and his band of rebels lurk nearby. Then, disaster strikes! Jake and his men board the Black Pig, capture the crew, and send the Captain scuttling up the nearest mast for safety. How will the self-proclaimed bravest buccaneer of them all get out of this one? Luckily, Tom the Cabin Boy has a clever plan that just may have the crew singing a rousing victory song. With its amusing, easy-to-read text and witty pen-and-ink illustrations, Pugwash Aloft is as fresh and lively as the day it was published.

John Ryan was born in Edinburgh and spent his early childhood in the U.K. and Morocco before moving back to England, where he worked for seven years as Assistant Art Master of Harrow School. Captain Pugwash first set sail over 50 years ago as a strip cartoon. Since then he has featured in books, films and theatres all over the world. Before his death in 2009 aged 88, Ryan lived in Rye, Sussex, the home of smugglers in years gone by, with his wife Priscilla, who is also an artist. He has three children and a regular crew of grandchildren.Review:
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.
