Summary

Penguin presents the unabridged, downloadable audiobook edition of The Unlikely Adventures of Mabel Jones by Will Mabbit, read by Toby 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.

It was brilliant!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes. They might like all the exciting parts.

What other book might you compare The Unlikely Adventures of Mabel Jones to, and why?

A bit like The Secret of Platform 13. Both have a portal that only opens very briefly, not very often.

Which character – as performed by Toby Jones – was your favourite?

Captain Idris Ebenezer Split and Mabel Jones.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Some of the parts were funny.

Any additional comments?

All the above are the opinions of my six year old son.

We thoroughly enjoyed listening to this story in the car on our new journey to and from school each day. There were plenty of cliff hangers and lots of suspense and I really liked that Mabel Jones met all the adversity head on. Go Mabel!
