Pugwash and the Ghost Ship by John Ryan

Recommended Age: 5-7 Years

We simply could not have a pirate themed story collection without the infamous Captain Pugwash! Spanning more than six decades, the original captain Pugwash was created in 1950, made into a number of television shows and has created much loved nostalgia throughout the generations. In Pugwash and the Ghost Ship we find our much loved captain commanding his crew into a spring clean of the Black Pig. What starts as a simple ship renovation ends up with our beloved captain in another life or death situation with only young Tom, the cabin boy to save him. The Captain Pugwash series is a great set of adventures to be passed down through the family and will create fans for future generation to come.

So there we have it my little landlubbers and salty sea pups, a complete series of stories fit for any pirate in the making. We hope that you and your merry band of pirates enjoy the high sea adventures and madcap treasure hunts featured in our recommended stories.
