Saracen Hobday lives a quiet, peaceful life until the day his Granny, a detective, rushes off in pursuit of the dreaded pirate Grudge-Gallows. Left alone, Saracen falls in love, twice, makes a fortune from a newly discovered plant, and defeats a gang of ruffian pirates…all because of tingleberry ice cream, the tuckertub plant, and a solid gold telephone! "Another rollicking adventure from the versatile Mahy, this is filled with zany characters, hilarious situations, and action." — Booklist

I really enjoyed this book. I read it when I was in third grade and adored it. I read it again recently (I'm 16 now), and I still loved it. The story is charming, and I think it would be well worth the reader's efforts to find a used copy in a library or in B&N's used book section.
