They’re back!!! The Pirate Captain and his irascible crew of scoundrels return in their soggiest saga yet.Fresh from their mishaps with Charles Darwin and the evil Bishop of Oxford, the Pirates set sail in a bouncy new vessel——purchased on credit. In order to repay his debts, the Pirate Captain is determined to capture the enigmatic White Whale, hunted by the notoriously moody Ahab, who has promised a reward.Chaos ensues, featuring the lascivious Cutlass Liz, the world’s most dangerous mosquito, an excerpt from the Pirate Captain’s novel in progress (a bodice ripper, of course), whale ventriloquism, practical lessons in whale painting, a shanty-singing contest in a Las Vegas casino, and a dra-matic climax in which the Pirate Captain’s prize ham saves the day!Move over, Herman Melville.

    " Nice light reading, I laughed out loud a few times, and loved the informational tidbits. "

    " This book was really cute. I really enjoyed it. The humor was good & the serious topics they talked about such as debt and whaling were expressed in an easy going, funny manner. This book would be really good for kids as a bed time story. Older kids i reckon because some of the issues (especially at the end where the big whale found the lady whale) is quite adult. A birds & the bees talk may be in order!! "

    " 'He considered punching the whale on the nose, because he recalled something about that being their weak spot. But then he remembered how that might be sharks rather than whales. And also that it was probably apocryphal anyway. And of course whales don't really have noses.' "
