Have you ever picked your nose? Have you ever picked your nose and eaten it? Have you ever picked your nose, eaten it, and by doing so, opened a portal to a world run by pirates? Mabel Jones has.

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 unlock the treasure they seek.

Mabel’s voyage takes her across the Greasy Pole of Certain Death, into the belly of a whale, and underground to a decrepit crypt. And she does it all…in pajamas!

Read on if you dare. You are promised a most unlikely adventure.

Quotes & Awards

  • 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

  • “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

  • “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 Reviews
