Mervyn Peake

A special anniversary edition to celebrate a swashbuckling fantasy that remains as contemporary today as it did 70 years ago.

Captain Slaughterboard is the most ferocious and wicked pirate you could ever imagine. He likes nothing better than cutting people up with his cutlass or making them walk the plank. Then one day, on a remote island, he spies a strange Yellow Creature – and from that time on, he’s a changed man. How he loves the Yellow Creature! They become the best of friends, always together, sailing the oceans. But will Captain Slaughterboard ever drop anchor for good? From the cult novelist Mervyn Peake, with a new introduction by his son, Fabian. #0921 (Price sticker on back.)
