The stories are wonderfully told: simple, clear language that stays on course... and of course the illustrations are so enduringly distinctive, with Pugwash of the late Pavarotti-like proportions. (Book Magazine)
Lovely hardback reproduction. (Independent on Sunday)
Daring masterstrokes of loopiness and whose energetic caricatures of all and sundry are as bright as they are barmy. Don't believe though that it is all thoughtless jollification. For while it is unlikely that, say, piratical villains in their hammocks would have washing pegged out on an overhead line...the artist's control of his maritime, and sometimes sartorial, details has a convincing air of authenticity. (Books for Keeps)
John Ryan was born in Edinburgh and spent his early childhood in the UK and Morocco before moving back to England, where he worked for seven years as Assistant Art Master of Harrow School. Captain Pugwash first set sail over 50 years ago as a strip cartoon. Since then he has featured in books, films and theatres all over the world. Before his death in 2009 aged 88, John lived in Rye, Sussex, the home of smugglers in years gone by, with his wife Priscilla, who is also an artist. He has three children and a regular crew of grandchildren.
