A Book about Pirates"Pirates" was written by LB favourite L.Du Garde Peach and illustrated by Frank Humphris. The subject is typically well-researched and the infamous characters are presented in a fairly objective and non-violent manner, even with such pirates such as Barbarossa and Blackbeard! In his first job for Ladybird, Humphris can perhaps be forgiven for assuming all female pirates were young and voluptuous, since his artwork is well up to the usual Ladybird standard. Clearly the company thought so, since he went solo on his next project.
This is a collection of 22 short stories about pirates.
