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.

"Prose Prozac for the nautically inclined. . . . Gently satiric and genuinely funny. . . . A seaworthy little page-turner." —The Village Voice

"Hilarious. Destined to become a classic of pirate comic fiction." —Eric Idle

"A treasure chest of lighthearted laughs." —Knoxville News-Sentinel

"Equal parts witty and absurd. . . . Will put a smile on the face of even the stiffest reader." —Memphis Flyer

"[Defoe] can make even pirates seem as cuddly as a teddy bear. . . . [A] funny and downright easy-to-love book." —Sacramento Book Review
