A swashbuckling follow-up to the award-winning pirate romp "Jolly Roger". This is the story (in diary form) of reluctant pirate pupil, Pickles. At Captain Abdul's awful academy she is taught such essential pirate topics as how to make cannon balls and the correct way to say, "Ooh arrgh!" Discovering a plot to kidnap the pupils and hold them to ransom, she leads a mutiny. Following this, she and her fellow pupils set sail in the "Golden Behind" and have a great life robbing other pirates. Pickles (revealed on the last page to be a girl called Maisy) is happy because she has plenty of time to paint!
