Will Mabbitt writes. He writes in libraries, in cafes, on the toilet, and sometimes, when his laptop runs out of power he writes in his head. Before he got paid to do this he worked in London and spent a lot of time stuck on the train – which is where he wrote his first book, The Unlikely Adventures of Mabel Jones.

 

 

 

 

 

The Unlikely Adventures of Mabel 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, and a loaded pistol tucked into his pants with no fear of the consequences), the Feroshus Maggot whisks Mabel Jones off on the adventure of a lifetime. 

 

I was really impressed with how much I learnt today. I feel so much more confident with presenting thanks to PJ and Amy’s tips and teachings.
