Pugwash and the Ghost Ship by John Ryan
The Black Pig, home to Captain Pugwash and his pirate crew, is in desperate need of a spring cleaning. But what begins as a simple exercise in painting and decorating soon leads to a dastardly plot dreamed up by the Captain's arch-enemy, Cut-throat Jake - a plot so dastardly that it looks as if the good Captain's days are numbered! Kipper me capstans! As usual, the intrepid cabin boy Tom has a brilliant plan to save the day. How Captain Pugwash survives to sail the Seven Seas is a tale that delights readers young and old.
