The first two books in Gideon Defoe’s laugh-out-loud series The Pirates! are now combined, back-to-back, in a specially designed paperback.

In an Adventure with Scientists
, featuring the greatest sea-faring hero of all time, the immortal Pirate Captain, while searching for some major pirate booty, 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.

Fresh from their mishaps with Charles Darwin, the Pirates, In an Adventure with Ahab, 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.

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