A hilarious story, with witty writing, clever characters and the most ludicrous plot I could imagine.

After winning a card game against his enemy, Black Bellamy, the Pirate Captain decides to trade his winnings for Black Bellamy's plan to rob a gold rich trade ship.

However, the ship turns out to be filled with monkeys rather than gold. Thus the Pirate Captain takes aboard Darwin, and offers him help get Darwin to Victorian London (a very different place from the London we know) so that he can present his greatest discovery, the Manpanzee. Escapes abound, sword fights aplenty, and a helpful lesson about eating candy instead of fruit.

The humor was a bit cheesy and goofy, but for fans of British comedy these Pirate! novels are not to be passed up!
