The Pirates! In An Adventure With Scientists: Movie Trailer

Listen up, me hearties!  (First and last time I will EVER be saying that, promise!)  Aardman Animation, creators of Wallace and Gromit, will be releasing an adaptation of the hilarious novel by Gideon Defoe - The Pirates! In An Adventure With Scientists

Now, you landlubbers!  (Couldn't help it!)  I have been sent by the Pirate Captain of The Pirates! and Bloomsbury to ask...

If you are of a truly piratical nature, be sure to check out the brilliantly bonkers book, and go to see the trailer of the film on The Pirates- Movie

Now, that is all, this swashbuckling blogger out!

The Pirates! In An Adventure With Scientists by Gideon Defoe

Synopsis From Goodreads:
Not since Moby-Dick...No, not since Treasure Island...Actually, not since Jonah and the Whale has there been a sea saga to rival The Pirates! In an Adventure with Scientists, featuring the greatest sea-faring hero of all time, the immortal Pirate Captain, who, although he lives for months at a time at sea, somehow manages to keep his beard silky and in good condition.
Worried that his pirates are growing bored with a life of winking at pretty native ladies and trying to stick enough jellyfish together to make a bouncy castle, the Pirate Captain decides it's high time to spearhead an adventure.
While searching for some major pirate booty, he mistakenly attacks the young Charles Darwin's Beagle and then leads his ragtag crew from the exotic Galapagos Islands to the fog-filled streets of Victorian London. There they encounter grisly murder, vanishing ladies, radioactive elephants, and the Holy Ghost himself. And that's not even the half of it.
