A bloodthirsty pirate and his horrific and deformed crew spend their days dealing death until they find an uncharted island populated by diverse purple creatures. The captain becomes obsessed with the sole Yellow Creature. This weird story made even weirder by the outre illustrations of Mervyn Peake. The text is also handwritten by Peake.
An interesting but brief end note by one of Peake's sons says that he made it up for his kids during the years they lived in primitive conditions in the Channel Islands.
