That most unlikely of pirates, the greedy, selfish Captain Pugwash is at the helm once more. And his familiar crew are all aboard. "Battering barnacles! It's a birthday cake!" he cried. "From a friend." It's Captain Pugwash's birthday and he's planning a huge party. Cut-throat Jake hasn't forgotten either and he's planned a very special surprise... And in the second story, Pugwash has devised a clever invention for hunting treasure (with some help from Tom, of course). But danger lurks when Jake tries to use his invention against him! John Ryan's jolly captain is as bumbling and amusing as ever in these two pirate stories.

John Ryan was born in Edinburgh and spent his early childhood in the UK 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, John 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:
This is a breathtaking book for little ones who are learning to read. I really enjoyed the colourful illustrations and I think that Captain Pugwash is extremely funny. I like the fact that there are two stories in this book. They are just right for bedtime and I think that adults may enjoy reading the stories aloud to young children.
