The incorrigible Colin McNaughton sets sail with two hilarious high-seas adventures featuring that scary scoundrel, Captain Abdul. A young boy who prefers poetry to fighting is sent by his father to pirate school to toughen him up under the tuition of the zany Captain Abdul. The reluctant pirate pupil gets stuck on a ship with Captain Abdul, a scary scoundrel with more missing pieces than a secondhand jigsaw puzzle. Also sent to pirate school against her will, Maisy Pickles organizes a mutiny among the students. Will there be a mutiny? Or will these junior pirates end up having more fun than they could imagine?
