Have you ever been kidnapped right out of your own bed by a crew of scurvy pirates? A sack pulled over your head, and next, you’re thrown over a shoulder and dragged out of this world into a world where wolves, pigs, goats, and even a silent loris sail the seas in search of ill-gotten treasure??? No???? Ah! Then you must never have committed The Deed. The sacred Deed which shows you are a pirate in the making… Unfortunately for Mabel Jones, she did commit the deed---unlike all of you clean, healthy, and innocent children, Mabel Jones is guilty. Yes, she picked her nose…and then she ate it!!!! Ewwwwww! Pulled out of her bedroom onto the pirate ship The Feroshus Maggot, Mabel must serve its terrifying captain, (the cruel and selfish wolf, Idryys Ebenezer Split) so that she can stay alive long enough to find her way home. Can she survive the Greasy Pole of Certain Death? The Cadaverous Lobster Tavern? The Unremitting Drip? All of this while still dressed in pajamas??? Mabel is brave, smart, and she has a talent which the pirates lack…she can read. Come along with Mabel Jones, and find out if she can make her way back to her own bedroom!   (New Hampshire Great Stone Face Award nominee, 2018)
