Not since Moby-Dick...No, not since Treasure Island...Actually, not since Jonah and the Whale has there been a sea saga to rival The Pirates! In an Adventure with Scientists, featuring the greatest sea-faring hero of all time, the immortal Pirate Captain, who, although he lives for months at a time at sea, somehow manages to keep his beard silky and in good condition.

Worried that his pirates are growing bored with a life of winking at pretty native ladies and trying to stick enough jellyfish together to make a bouncy castle, the Pirate Captain decides it's high time to spearhead an adventure.

While searching for some major pirate booty, he mistakenly attacks the young Charles Darwin's Beagle and then leads his ragtag crew from the exotic Galapagos Islands to the fog-filled streets of Victorian London. There they encounter grisly murder, vanishing ladies, radioactive elephants, and the Holy Ghost himself. And that's not even the half of it.

    " Short, funny and full of pirates and scientists. A model for what all books should be, really. "

    " because one can't only read poetry books, one should also read pirate books (at least for the foot notes. recipe for a top notch afternoon: 1. sneak into one well- manicured-fancy-flowered-fenced-in-backyard 2. read pirates book out loud with friends 3. guffaw at said pirate book and perhaps at the sad saps who are not in their yard to enjoy pirate book with your group 4 (optional) eat home made cornbread "

    " UGH. This book is truly awful. Within the first 5 pages every single pirate cliche is tritely used and then continues to be used page after page. It seems like the author did no research and just used cliches to wash the story. Very disappointing. "
