Now a major motion picture.
Adventure? Yes, more than one! Derring-do? Yes! Storms? Sea monsters? Rival pirates? Of course! Cameos by frequently anachronistic historical figures? You betcha! All that and more.
Not since Moby-Dick.... No, not since Treasure Island.... Actually, not since Jonah and the Whale has there been a group of seafarers to rival The Pirates! and their leader, the greatest ocean-faring hero of all time, the immortal Pirate Captain, who, although he lives for months at a time on the bounding main, somehow manages to keep his beard silky and in good condition.
"Be it an odd and funny book about a roguish pirate captain, Charles Darwin, and a radioactive elephant ye seek, then seek ye no more!" (Entertainment Weekly)
"Prose Prozac for the nautically inclined.... gently satiric and genuinely funny.... a seaworthy little page-turner.... Rated: Aaarrr!" (The Village Voice)
"Hilarious. Destined to become a classic of pirate comic fiction." (Eric Idle)
