The Pirates mixed-up voyage
Margaret Mahy. Illustrated by Margaret Chamberlain
Captain Lionel Wafer and his crew: Toad, Brace-and-Bits and Winkle go off on an adventure to catch a famous inventor by the name of Humbert Cash-Cash … or at least steal his doorknob which is a single giant diamond. The Pirates can’t read numerals or numbers and they end up on the wrong island, owned by Mrs. Mangle. This is where their string of troubles starts... This book is great for early chapter book readers and is suitable for all ages.
