Capt. Hook

Capt. Hook - The Adventures of a Notorious Youth
by J.V. Hart and illustrated by Brett Helquist

This book covered capt hook's early years...as a rather spooky youth. He raised attack spiders, made a guillotine for science class, stood tall pale and thin with long black locks...what's not to love?!:)

This is the author's first novel but he has written many screenplays including Bram Stoker's Dracula and Hook. This would have made a great movie...I doubt it would happen though as there are some slightly sinister death scenes near the end that may make Disney squirm.

Oh and the illustrator is the same from Series of Unfortunate Events...another great dark series for kiddies!
