Another Pirate book
« on: January 28, 2005, 11:47:10 AM »

Picked this up yesterday while using my Christmas gift card:  The Pirates! In an adventure with scientists by Gideon Defoe.

The illustrations inside the front & back of the book are way cool.  What caught my eye first was the size (it's a little shorter and stuck out), then a quote by Eric Idle on the cover.  Here's all that's written about the author:

Quote
Gideon Defoe, who lives in London, is twenty-eight.  He wrote The Pirates! to convince a woman to leave her boyfriend for him.  She didn't.
 

Anyone else read this gem?

Oh yes this book is AWESOME!  A friend of mine who is quite pirate obsessed told me about it- and I skimmed through a few chapters and it is totally cool!  When I have money again, I plan on buying a copy of my very own.

Oooh!  Shiny!

I finally read this book and it is indeed awesome!

I like how the Pirate Captain can't remember any of the pirates' names so he calls them stuff like "The Pirate With the Green Scarf."

I've started compiling my own list of pirates... like "The Pirate With the Comb-over" and "The Pirate With the Rainbow Suspenders."  It's quite fun!
