That most unlikely of pirates, the greedy, selfish Captain Pugwash is at the helm once more. And his familiar crew are all aboard.'Plundering porpoises! I suppose I ought to put you all in irons!' cries Captain Pugwash, on discovering his crew about to tuck into a tasty midnight feast. Luckily for the crew, Pugwash decides to join in the feast instead! But then more uninvited guests drop in - and a most unwelcome bunch they are too. But there's a surprise in store for Jake and his evil gang - the mysterious islanders from nearby Rummi-Tummi are on their way!And in the second of these two exciting stories, Captain Pugwas is in a jovial mood. He's about to set sail for the Indies with the greatest load of silver bullion ever! But Cut-throat Jake overhears his plans and is determined to wreck the Black Pig.John Ryan's jolly captain is as bumbling and amusing as ever in these two pirate stories.
