Meet Luffy, Zolo, and Nami...not your typical pirate crew. Luffy ate the Devils Gum Gum (Rubber) Fruit and can stretch like rubber. Zolo, once a pirate hunter and expert swordsman who uses a three blade style also joins the crew. And last of all Nami, who is an expert navigator. This is a great book.

Luffy ate the gum gum fruit by mistake giving him the power to stretch out any part of his body. Latter he grew up wanting to become king of the pirets. Soon he made a crew of his own Roronoa Zolo who wields three swords at once and dreams to become the greatest swords man. Nami who's the navigator of the crew and used to rob pirets. They all (mostly Luffy) want to go to the grand line where they'll fine One Piece and become kind of the pirets.
I'm really enjoying this series and find it to be very amusing. If you like action and comedy manga, you'll probably like this one.
Luffy is made of rubber, Zoro can wield three swords at once, Nami is a thief who can also read the weather, and that's just the first three that you'll meet. The crew gets much bigger with more strange people; a guarantee to a crazy adventure all for the great treasure known as One Piece.
