9781845078218: Captain Pugwash

There's nothing more likely to prompt our portly hero into action than the prospect of treasure. So when the valiant cabin boy Tom espies a mound of yellow stuff aboard a nearby ship, the Captain sets off in hot pursuit. Unfortunately, his villainous arch-enemy, the horrible Cut-throat Jake, is not far away. Will the Captain be trapped by Jake's dastardly plan? Or will Tom, the wisest little cabin boy on the Seven Seas, have a plan of his own.?

About the Author:

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:

Pirate tales never date and this one will be popular with young readers who will be enlivened not only by the writing but also by the numerous, vigorous and colourful illustrations.



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.

The distinctive illustrations are lively, quirky and full of fun and add to the straightforward and tongue-in-cheek, amusing text.
