Product Overview

After adventures with Charles Darwin, Captain Ahab, and Karl Marx, The Pirate Captain faces off against his toughest?though not his biggest?challenge yet: Napoleon Bonaparte.

Bruised from a crushing disappointment at the Pirate of the Year Awards, the Pirate Captain decides that 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? Once again, Gideon Defoe has given us an exciting, swashbuckling tale of lavish tea parties, planning regulations, and raw political ambition.
