Kidnapped, Mabel is forced to serve aboard The Feroshus Maggot with the strangest crew you'll ever meet. And the captain--an odious wolf named Idryss Ebenezer Split--won't let her go until she helps the pirates uncover the treasure they seek.

Review quote

ADVANCED PRAISE FOR "THE UNLIKELY ADVENTURES OF MABEL JONES" From the first few sentences, I knew I was in for a uniquely wild and witty ride. If Lewis Carroll were writing for Monty Python, I imagine it might look something like this. Christopher Healy, author of the Hero s Guide series ""The Unlikely Adventures of Mabel Jones" is a speedy, splashy, snort-out-loud lark. Hints of "Pinocchio," "Peter Pan," and "The Hobbit" bubble beneath its fast-paced plot, and wordplay both visual and textual sets a lively tone. Clever and fun. Jacqueline West, author of the "New York Times" bestselling series, The Books of Elsewhere "First in a series, this comical novel should become a readaloud favorite." "Publishers Weekly," starred review! "A zany and twisted pirate tale . . . for readers transitioning into longer chapter books." "School Library Journal ""A little bit of Monty Python, a touch of Capt. Jack Sparrow . . . This high-spirited, pirate-tastic romp is for kids who like their buccaneers a little on the wild side." "Kirkus" "From the Hardcover edition.""
