The Pirates! In an Adventure with Scientists is one of my favorite books. It's one in a series by Gideon Defoe about a group of pirates who sail around looking for adventure and usually, also ham. In this prospective book cover, I really wanted to capture the essence of all the silly characters, like Bobo the chimpanzee, and crucial bits of plot like ham and trilobites. I sent the book cover to the author via Twitter, who was also pleased with it.
