||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
