Great Piratical Rumbustification & the Librarian and the Robbers AND The Librarian and the Robbers

Written by Margaret Mahy

Illustrated by Quentin Blake

Great Piratical Rumbustification & the Librarian and the Robbers AND The Librarian and the Robbers Synopsis

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.

Great Piratical Rumbustification & the Librarian and the Robbers AND The Librarian and the Robbers Press Reviews

Two books worth of story crammed into 63 magical pages. No impossibly articulate child protagonists with clearly defined goals or desires, no rhyme or reason, just a pair of stories cut from the same cloth as books by Willaim Stieg and Roald Dahl. -- David Elzey The Excelsior File
