Description

Cut-throat Jake and his ugly crew are busy celebrating on Cactus Island, surrounded by their stolen treasure. So they are caught off guard when Captain Pugwash and his men arrive disguised as a sea monster. But more surprises are to follow for all the pirates - when the real sea monster turns up to investigate, and Pugwash's crew are stranded by high tide. Luckily quick-thinking Tom the Cabin-boy is on hand to save the day again!

Reviews

The stories are wonderfully told: simple, clear language that stays on course... and of course the illustrations are so enduringly distinctive, with Pugwash of the late Pavarotti-like proportions. Book Magazine 5 stars. Captain Pugwash is a favourite with many children and this book will delight pirate fans everywhere. www.bettybookmark.co.uk A delightful bedtime book to read aloud for age 5+.
