That most unlikely of pirates, the greedy, selfish Captain Pugwash is at the helm once more. And his familiar crew are all aboard.In these four adventures the crew turn vegetarian, their enemy Cut-throat Jake is defeated by a parrot, there's a fierce battle on the poop deck, and the pirates find a whole new way to walk the plank.Pugwash fans old and new will revel in these stories. John Ryan's text and drawings are as full of comic vigour as ever.
