Bruised from a crushing disappointment at the Pirate of the Year Awards the Pirate Captain decides that perhaps it's time for a career change. Before long, his loyal crew, much to their dismay, find themselves en route to St Helena: a bleak speck of an island a thousand miles from anywhere. But the Captain's plan for a quiet life rearing bees is interrupted by the arrival of another visitor to the island - the recently deposed Napoleon Bonaparte. Is the island's twenty-eight mile circumference big enough to contain two of history's greatest egos? Has the Pirate Captain finally met his match? And who has the best hat? The Pirates! In an Adventure with Napoleon is an exciting, unputdownable tale of lavish tea parties, planning regulations, educational museum exhibits, and raw naked political ambition. There is not much ham in this one.
"If you have teeeangers who resist the idea of being read to, then leave Gideon Defoe's hilarious The Pirates! book lying around." - Frank Cottrell-Boyce
