The Unlikely Adventures of Mabel Jones
When Mabel Jones unknowingly commits 'The Deed' she finds herself swiftly bundled into a sack and carried off to the pirate ship the Feroshus Maggot.
Crewed by the strangest bunch of pirates you would ever want to meet and captained by the dreaded Idryss Ebeneezer Split (a wolf with a false leg carved from a human thighbone, a rusty cutlass sheathed in his belt and a loaded pistol tucked in his pants with no fear of the consequences), the Feroshus Maggot whisks Mabel Jones off on the adventure of a lifetime.
BOOKSELLER Book of the Month!
"Mabbit's cast is a particular joy, brought vividly to life by Collins' detailed black and white illustrations which oose character. The darkness and danger is perfectly pitched: Wolf Captain... is 'a whirlwind of claws and drool', with a false leg carved from a human thighbone and no fear of consequences, but this is balanced by a witty narrator, clever wordplay and oodles of humour."
"This comical novel should become a read aloud favourite."
