Every Sunday on the Isle of Sark, Mervyn Peake would tell his children stories about pirates, shipwrecks, and the Wild West. He illustrated his spontaneous stories with delightfully vivid drawings of the characters in his tales, but never set down words to go with them. Now, decades after Peake¹s death, world-renowned fantasy writer (and friend of the Peakes) Michael Moorcock has written verses to go with Peake¹s drawings.
