    1. This book is perfect for all ages. It works as a book to read to young kids, it works as book for children to read (because they’ll think its brilliant) and it works for grown-ups because it’s so much fun. That’s FUN with CAPITALS.Mabel Jones has done performed the deed and thus ended up being kidnapped by the crew of The Feroshus Maggot. Her only chance of getting home is helping the captain, it’s also the only way she won’t get thrown overboard.Will Mabbit tells us Mabel’s adventur [...]


    2. i loved the adventure! i don't usually read pirate books, but this one is good! i loved all the different characters.i would happily read it again!



    3. Mabel Jones is kidnapped by Pirates when they witness her performing The Deed (picking her nose and eating it) but she is saved from walking the Greasy Pole of Certain Death when they realize that she can read and spell. Now, she must help them find the men who have the pieces of X so that she can open the porthole and return home. This is a delightful book! Mabel is strong and resourceful, the writing is brilliant and the adventure is exciting. The text layout is a lot of fun, lots of design an [...]


    4. Leuk leesboek vol avontuur. Een piratenverhaal met een meisje in pyjama in de hoofdrol. Veel actie en humor. Grappige tekstopmaak. Het leesniveau van de kinderen moet wel redelijk zijn (minstens derde leerjaar).


    5. I thought this book was dreadful. It begins with young Mabel getting kidnapped out of her room one night by a pirate after she picks her nose and eats her own booger. This is "the deed" that binds you to the pirate captain for life. She is taken to the pirate ship, The Feroshus Maggot captained by a one eyed wolf with a false leg and a loaded pistol in his underwear.The crew is made up of different animals. They are horrified to learn that Mabel is a girl because "girls can't be pirates." But sh [...]


    6. Mabel Jones did The Deed and now she has to pay the price. What did she do? She picked her nose and ATE it and was then sucked into a portal to a world of pirates. She has to help Captain Idryss Ebenezer Split of The Feroshus Maggot find the five pieces of the X that will lead to a treasure. This involves a drinking contest involving the disgusting milk, a bit of grave robbing in an underground crypt, being swallowed by a whale and many other adventures. And Mabel does it all while wearing her p [...]


    7. ( blurb)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.

    8. Wow!! Listened to this book with the family on the way to Mt Rushmore. It was perfect for us. Toby Jones read it and he gets 10 stars!!! It was cute enough that my kids loved it and interesting enough that my husband even listened for a while (he says I should give it 3 stars.) I loved the part about the milk! Thanks for writing and narrating the perfect book to brake up my 10 hours each way car ride!!


    9. I would never have picked up this title if it hadn't been to help my sister-in-law write questions for her Battle of the Books team. I have no intention of reading any other titles in the series. But for what it is -a goofy pirate adventure story - it's quite well executed, and I would imagine that it's a huge hit with a certain segment of 8-11 year-old readers.


    10. this book was so fun and exiting. i loved reading it with my family. we laughed and smiled at all the funny jokes and sayings. who would imagine the unlikely adventures of Mabel Jones? who would imagine pirates were afraid of milk? surely Will Mabbitt would.


    11. Read this aloud to my 8,9 and 13 year olds. There are a lot of big words that needed explaining. And we had to review who some of the characters were at times. But it was a fun story. A little dark in spots.


    12. Mabel Jones was a really fun book. It reminded me of The Hero's Guide to Saving Your Kingdom which I loved. The narration is extremely entertaining and the illustrations are fun. This book is filled with detailed descriptions that make it very easy to imagine all the gross events of the book. The characters are also all very engaging. Mabel Jones is confident and funny. The Pirates are all quirky animals. Since I'm a senior in high school I found it to not be as engaging as I probably would have [...]


    13. It has the most twee opening but just past the halfway point it starts to settle down. It ends with some epic world building that should have been there from the get-go. Child as psychopomp.


    14. I liked that we read it as a family and it is super funny. I like the book very much. I listened to it on a trip in the car. The voice that read it was Dobbys and he did really good.


    15. Read this with my daughter every night before bed. She liked it up until the ending. It seemed like the author was running out of ideas and just tried to end it quickly


    16. Fantastic, fun original!This was a laugh out loud funny story. I got everyone in my family to read it. Best read ever.



    17. Funny, great female character, interesting time travel spin & amazing illustrations throughout. Lots of fun!



    18. When Mabel Jones unknowingly commits ‘The Deed’, she is promptly bundled into a specially designed child-sized sack by a silent loris named Omynus Hussh and whisked off to a world run by pirates. She finds herself on a pirate ship called The Feroshus Maggot which is crewed by animals and captained by the nefarious Idryss Ebenezer Split. The Captain will not let Mabel return to the ‘hooman world’ until she helps them find all the scattered pieces of a key which will unlock the most amazin [...]


    19. Ludicrous, ridiculous, and preposterous!I mean, what can you say about a book whose second character introduced is named Omynus Hussh? Yes, that is an ominous indication of things to come indeed!Things like a world populated by talking, intelligent, bipedal animals, the vast majority of them villainous scoundrels of the most unsavory sort. Where pirates kidnap children (like Mabel Jones) who eat their boogers. Where the captain of the sailing vessel Peapod is Ishmael H. Toucan, searching for the [...]


    20. It was all a mistake really. If the pirates hadn't seen Mabel picking her nose, they wouldn't have taken her to become a member of their crew. Now Mabel is stuck in their world unless she can find all the missing pieces of X. If she can, then a portal will open up and she'll be able to get back home. But the pieces are hidden and it will take some riddle-solving to figure out where.


    21. This review first appeared on The Book Zone (For Boys)This book carries an incredibly important message that all readers, young or old, should heed or face the appalling consequences: if you are in the habit of picking your nose, it would be wise to pick and flick or pick and wipe, but never, ever pick and eat. Unfortunately for young Mabel Jones, she elected to eat the fruits of her nose-picking labours, and as such commits "The Deed". And if you are observed doing "The Deed" by the piratical c [...]


    22. I learned about this book from a list of 'must read' books for this summer. I went to the library website to put it on hold and found that he digital copy was available (the printed form won't be out until later this summer). I am not a huge fan of digital books, but I am starting to see some great reasons to read digitally. As I found interesting parts I wanted to remember and blog about I highlighted the text and took a screen shot. It made putting this blog post together so easy! This story w [...]


    23. "The Unlikely Adventures of Mabel Jones" which I won through /First Reads is a delightfully hearty adventure that begins when Mabel commits "The Deed" and is bundled in a sack by a silent loris and whisked through a portal to serve as a pirate on the "the Feroshus Maggot". When it's discovered that Omynus Hussh kidnapped the wrong gender (because girls can't be pirates), Captain Idryss Ebenezer Split, a nefarious wolf doesn't send Mabel back to the "hooman" world, but enlists her in finding clue [...]


    24. My Thoughts:If you (or a loved one) likes Lemony Snicket, Roald Dahl, or Captain Underpants, this one’s for you! There’s very little serious about this book, but it’s a lot of fun in the way that kids of the target age group like it best. Silly situations, caricatures of characters, adventure, peril, perilous adventure, a treasure to find—it’s all here.Mabel Jones is plucky and resourceful as she helps the crew of the Feroshus Maggot find their treasure—which, incidentally, will open [...]


    25. This book had a great dust jacket blurb (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), but the book was: "meh, it's okay." At least for me (the mom). The kids liked it alright. There's a rather intrusive narrator giving commentary throughout, and more than once I was tempted to abbreviate the interruptions rather than read them. The book is fille [...]


    26. In this odd but entertaining entry from the United Kingdom, Mabel Jones picks her nose, and thinking no one is watching, eats the booger at the end of her finger. Her actions are gross enough, but they have dismaying consequences as Mable is subsequently kidnapped by pirates and made to endure all sorts of mistreatment as part of the pirate crew aboard the Feroshus Maggot. The pirate's leader is the cruel and obsessed Idryss Ebenezer Split, a wolf, who is determined to put together all the parts [...]
