Series of books about young pirate

I cannot remember the name of a series of books I read when I was young (in 2003-2006). It was about a young boy, a pirate, who was traveling with his crew. There were a lot of planets. It was fun and a bit creepy sometimes. I remember big monsters and a quest. But there was a lot of books and I didn't finish them. I think the hero's name was Pip or something like that. They were books for teenagers.

Does anyone know the name of this series?
