Synopsis

Pugwash and the Buried Treasure by John Ryan

Poor old Captain Pugwash's worst nightmare comes true when he is marooned on an island in the middle of the ocean. But even worse than that, he is not alone - and his fellow inhabitant is none other then his most deadly enemy, the villainous Cut-throat Jake. All seems lost. But, as usual, quick-witted cabin boy Tom saves the day and the captain and his crew end up sitting on a fortune!

Reviews

The stories are wonderfully told: simple, clear language that stays on course... and of course the illustrations are so enduringly distinctive, with Pugwash of the late Pavarotti-like proportions. Book Magazine Lovely hardback reproduction. Independent on Sunday Daring masterstrokes of loopiness and whose energetic caricatures of all and sundry are as bright as they are barmy. Don't believe though that it is all thoughtless jollification. For while it is unlikely that, say, piratical villains in their hammocks would have washing pegged out on an overhead line...the artist's control of his maritime, and sometimes sartorial, details has a convincing air of authenticity. Books for Keeps
