Poor old Captain Pugwash's worst nightmare comes true when he is marooned on an island in the middle of the ocean. But even worse than that, he is not alone - and his fellow inhabitant is none other then his most deadly enemy, the villainous Cut-throat Jake. All seems lost. But, as usual, quick-witted cabin boy Tom saves the day and the captain and his crew end up sitting on a fortune!

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:

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.
