9781567921694: The Great Piratical Rumbustification & the Librarian and the Robbers

Wild and wonderful, these stories will appeal to all readers of fine children's literature, and Blake's illustrations, full of spirit and exuberance, are the perfect accompaniment of Mahy's vigorous tales.

The Great Piratical Rumbustification introduces us to Alpha, Oliver, and Omega Terrapin, alone for an evening of devilish fun and none other than Orpheus Clinker, a reformed pirate cleverly transformed into a respectable babysitter. Or has he reformed? Before you can say "Yo Ho Ho" the Terrapin household has become headquarters of the century's biggest pirate party.

The Librarian and the Robbers is an equally tickling tale of a band of wicked robbers who one day carry off Serena Leburnum, a beautiful librarian. Follow what happens as the lovely and learned Miss L. not only outwits the robbers, turning them into outstanding citizens, but also teaches them the everlasting pleasures of the Dewey Decimal System.

About the Author:

Quentin Blake is one of the UK's living cultural treasures. He has written and illustrated dozens of books and provided pictures for hundreds more, including the children's novels of Roald Dahl.

From AudioFile:

In the first of two extravagant fantasies by the acknowledged mistress of extravagant fantasy, three wide-eyed lads are overjoyed to discover that the Mother Goose Babysitting Agency has sent a pirate by mistake. In the second, a lovely librarian converts a would-be kidnapper to a . . .well. . . more orderly occupation. Reader Jarvis manages to portray Terrible Crabmeat, the pirate cum babysitter, and Salvation Loveday, the robber turned librarian, with equal aplomb and dashing success. The sparkling wit of the text is matched by his equally witty and well-paced performance. K.T.B. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
