Octopus Pirate J Yates Synopsis
Set in the Victorian period, Octopus Pirate is a time-travelling steampunk tale of a foundling who discovers he has unusual talents, such as camouflage, squishing into small spaces and the ability to communicate with octopuses!
He is washed up on an island off the Scottish mainland. An eccentric former nun called Mary, who lives there alone with her cats brings him up and names him after her favourite character in a book, Pinocchio. Later she changes this is Coco for convenience.
As a teenager Coco joins the circus were he makes friends with Eric, who is an electronic magician and in his act makes a robot teleport across the tent.
Coco narrowly escaping plots against him flees to Cornwall with Eric. Here they raise funds to build a replica pirate ship, which is also an airship and they travel back in time to fight real pirates. Crews consist of Victorian men who want to fight without any repercussions. It's 'Fight Club', but with a twist or twenty.
Everything goes pretty smoothly until a young girl, Sage, who had been posing as a boy got injured. Against all agreements, Coco brings her back though time to hospital. Unfortunately, the police now think that he might be a murderer...
