Eight hilarious short stories recount the swashbuckling sea adventures of Pugnacious Pete the Pirate Captain, the clueless crew of the “Purple Pimple” pirate ship, Pedro the Poisonous Parrot and other sea-worthy (and not so worthy) characters for young readers and listeners.

Among the many adventures of this motley crew are a bad storm at sea, a pirate mutiny, a battle at sea, an encounter with an enormous squid, surviving a shipwreck … and even a pirate romance.

Perhaps the most fearsome adventure experienced by the crew, however, is an unwelcome visit from the scariest pirate of all, Dreadful Doris. Prepare to be as surprised as Pirate Pete at the true identity of Dreadful Doris … and the reason why she finally decides to leave the Purple Pimple!

Each short story is a perfect length for a bedtime story, and the illustrations of artist Colin King bring the comic misadventures, calamities and blunders of the Purple Pimple pirates to colourful life for young children.
