Description

Ahoy mateys! Here be secrets to unfold if ye dream of being a buccaneer.

Want to become a pirate? You need this book! Discover the real (and revolting) life of a pirate, from recruitment (don’t call us, we’ll kidnap you!), grub (cackle fruit = eggs), to parts of the ship (the poop deck is not a toilet). Then visit the rogues gallery to meet the most famous pirates to ever set sail.

Editorial Review

Hamilton follows The Fairy Tale Handbook and The Monstrous Book of Monsters with an irreverent guide to the pirate life, full of information about crew hierarchy, slang, traditions, legendary ghost ships, and more...an entertaining book for sprogs looking to become full-fledged sea dogs.
