Since she sailed away after the pirates' adventure with scientists, the pirates' boat has been somewhat battered by the rigours of ocean life. Her mast keeps collapsing, her wheel has broken off and several of the pirates have ended up with nasty splinters. Realising his paintings can only cover up the leaks for so long, the Pirate Captain decides he must pay a visit to Cutlass Liz's boat yard (Liz is 'famed for having the best face on the entire eastern seaboard') and trade his ship in for a newer model. Dazzled by the swan-lined curtains and tennis courts of 'The Lovely Emma', and frankly, by Cutlass Liz's lovely face, the Pirate Captain makes a rash decision and finds himself with a debt of six thousand doubloons, and very little time in which to pay it before the sands of Liz's hourglass run out and he and his crew are gutted like fish.… (mer)

Light-hearted, quirky and wonderfully bonkers. I needed a change of pace and this fit the bill perfectly. ( )

Read this book aloud on car trips to Jefferson and Andrew. I thought most of it was over Jefferson's head (well, a lot of the humor really was), but then when we finally finished the book, Jefferson kept asking about it. We started reading another book in this series, but misplaced it not long ago. Time to go on a hunt so we can see how it ends! ( )

Another great book! A group of pirates encounter the Beagle and Darwin, and from there they deviate from history in a hilarious adventure. The characters are wonderfully odd, Defoe has a great sense of humor. This is a must read for anyone!! ( )

A very silly book about the Pirate Captain and his crew attempting to raise 6000 Doubloons to pay off their debts. After many failed plans they eventually settle on claiming the bounty Ahab has put on the whale. I enjoyed the mix of historical detail with the ridiculous. I have never read Moby Dick so no doubt a lot of the references went over my head, but I thoroughly enjoyed this easy read. ( )

Sequel to The Pirates! In an Adventure with Scientists. This time, the pirates buy a fancy new ship on credit, then try to come up with some schemes to earn the money before they're dismembered for non-payment. Also, they keep encountering Ahab.

It's all utterly silly, and a little bit surreal. But fun. I will say that I don't think I found it quite as charming or as consistently funny as the first one, maybe just because it caught me less by surprise. But every time I started to think maybe it was a bit more dumb than hilarious, or to get tired of the weird running joke about hams, there would be a pirate rap battle, or something equally delightful, and I would be all on board again (so to speak). Hey, sometimes this kind of ridiculousness is exactly what you need. ( )

To Sophie,

who still has a quarter of a million pounds

that I have dedicated to her.
