Master storyteller Richard Hope recounts the swashbuckling adventures of pirates from all over the world in a collection that is brimming with the perils and drama of life on the high seas. Young children will meet fierce characters, such as the captain in the German tale, Kobold and the Pirates; others, like young Mochimitsu in the Japanese tale, are friendly and funny. They will also meet the infamous Grace O'Malley, one of Ireland's most feared pirates.
