The Lovereading4Kids comment

The return of this wonderful piratical romp sees Captain Pugwash and his resourceful cabin boy Tom outwit the British Navy! Relaxing on a beach in the Pacific, the Captain and his crew learn that the Admiral of the British Navy is on a mission to capture him and bring him back alive! When a ship sails into the bay, the Captain and his crew hide. Luckily, Tom is braver and more resourceful. Soon he has identified the ship and found a way to ensure that its owner – Pugwash’s arch-enemy Cut-Throat Jake – ends up being arrested instead. The additional audio book brings the book alive with the addition of music and sound effects of the pirates’ life at sea.

Synopsis

Pugwash in the Pacific by John Ryan

The Admiral is under strict orders from the Prime Minister - to search the Seven Seas, capture Captain Pugwash and bring him back alive. Far away on a sunny island in the middle of the Pacific, Captain Pugwash has no idea of the fearful fate that awaits him. The sky is blue, the sea is warm and the Captain and his crew are having a lovely time, but will they be able to evade the law for much longer?
