Write Review

Rated 0

Fiction, Modern & contemporary fiction (post c 1945)

The Pirates return in the third of the much-loved, cult-hit series.

The Pirates! In an Adventure with Scientists introduced us to the Pirate Captain, his luxuriant beard and his motley crew (including the Albino Pirate, the Pirate with Rickets and the Pirate with a wooden leg - as well as Jennifer, a girl).
Since then they have had an adventure with Captain Ahab and an elusive white whale, and gained a cult following in the US and the UK. Matt Lucas, David Walliams, Ardal O'Hanlon and Chris Addison are just some of the fans of the series.
And now, the extravagantly-bearded captain and his followers embark on a new adventure, in which they encounter Karl Marx and cancan dancers, valkyries and volcanoes, and try to discover whether ham really could be the opium of the people.
