    Captain Horatio Pugwash, that blustering pirate who first appeared in comic strip form in 1950, and who has starred in three television series devoted to his adventures, made his picture book debut here, in this comic tale of two rival sea captains With a crew of incompetent layabouts under his command, Captain Pugwash sails his ship, The Black Pig, about the Caribbean, always on the lookout for treasure When his cabin boy, Tom the only member of the crew with any discernible skills spies Captain Horatio Pugwash, that blustering pirate who first appeared in comic strip form in 1950, and who has starred in three television series devoted to his adventures, made his picture book debut here, in this comic tale of two rival sea captains With a crew of incompetent layabouts under his command, Captain Pugwash sails his ship, The Black Pig, about the Caribbean, always on the lookout for treasure When his cabin boy, Tom the only member of the crew with any discernible skills spies another ship nearby, one that appears to be deserted, and piled high with gold, the greedy pirate sets out immediately to claim it Unbeknownst to him, of course, it is a trap set by his arch nemesis and rival pirate, the evil Cut Throat Jake Will Captain Pugwash be killed, or will the loyal Tom come to the rescue Originally published in 1957, this first ofthan twenty Captain Pugwash picture books books is a humorous sea story sure to please young readers who enjoy a rollicking good tale Children who love to read about the adventures of pirates will be particularly thrilled Done in a cartoon like style which makes sense, given the origins of the character in a comic strip , and alternating between full color and black and white artwork with blue accents, the illustrations here are just as appealing as the text, perfectly capturing the zany, madcap humor of the story All in all, Captain Pugwash is a fun little book I can see why it has remained popular all of these years

    Captain Pugwash was humorous, well told, and fun, and I was actually pretty impressed with how well the author captured the spirit of classic high seas adventure books like Treasure Island sans murder and anything truly terrifying, of course The story moved and built into a great crescendo, and the ending was funny and grounded the tale The kids and I also enjoyed the pictures, which were entertaining and full of action, movement, and color Although this is an old book, I think that Captain Captain Pugwash was humorous, well told, and fun, and I was actually pretty impressed with how well the author captured the spirit of classic high seas adventure books like Treasure Island sans murder and anything truly terrifying, of course The story moved and built into a great crescendo, and the ending was funny and grounded the tale The kids and I also enjoyed the pictures, which were entertaining and full of action, movement, and color Although this is an old book, I think that Captain Pugwash is still a lot of fun for today s kids, and adults could really have a lot of fun reading this one aloud to kids Really, I m rather inclined to call Captain Pugwash a must read for children who are into pirate stories

    This 1950 s picture book series is a step up from early chapter books like Frog and Toad, but only just It definitely appeals to the era who would have been watching the pirates on Disney s Peter Pan as something new Comical pirates and Captain Pugwash are incredibly lazy, while the small cabin boy is running the entire ship It is, of course, the cabin boy who saves the day and the captain who takes credit, but it seems to end with a sigh instead of a wink.

    The usual pirate jokes and cliches mixed in with the usual goofball who is always messing everything up If your kid like this type of this, this series is for you.As an adult I wasn t too awed by the series It would make a good read aloud book, because the pictures are numerous and detailed It would also be a good step in between picture and chapter books for the same reason.
