    When the murderous Captain Slaughterboard and the crew of the Black Tiger make landfall on a pink island full of preposterous animals they meet the Yellow Creature, 'bright as butter', who changes Slaughterboard's life for ever. Written and drawn by Mervyn Peake in 1939, this pirate fantasy is as marvellous now as it was in 1939. This is the 70th anniversary edition, with an introduction by the author's son, Fabian Peake.
