To tie in with the DVD release of The Pirates! in an Adventure with Scientists, this exclusive, fully illustrated guide takes us behind the scenes to discover how 2012's hottest film was made. Packed with previously unseen visual material, including storyboards and designs for sets and key characters, this highly collectible full-colour book charts the journey from paper to screen: a five-year process for a crew of just 320 people - requiring 3.000 storyboard images, 19,456 square metres of foam board and 893 different mouths for the Pirate Captain alone. Also included are rare interviews with the directors, producers and key members of the production team, giving insight into the creative and technical challenges of a project of this size and ambition. The Making of The Pirates! is a must-have for the many fans of the film, and for anyone interested in the methods, passions and eccentricities of Aardman, this most quintessentially British animation studio.

I've had to grow a luxuriant beard to conceal the grin that's been compromising my dignity since I read it Ardal O'Hanlon Hilarious. Destined to become a classic of pirate comic fiction Eric Idle Gideon Defoe definitively puts the "Ho ho!" - and, indeed, the "Yo!" - into pirating Caitlin Moran
