This is literally one of the greatest books ever written. I first heard it many, many years ago via a string of cassette tapes my mom picked up from the local library when I was a kid. On a whim, I ordered the CD version from Amazon last month – easily the best purchase I've made in years, no exaggeration. There is so much comical nuance in this book, so much brilliant humor, and I'm not ashamed to admit that almost all it flew right over my head when I was a child.

This is to say nothing of the narration, by Richard Mitchley. The voice acting, the accents of all the different characters, the constant drama he conveys . . . hilarious is an understatement. Listening to the audiobook version of this is, thus, crucial.

The Pirates' Mixed-up Voyage is proof that so-called children's books easily qualify as candidates of outstanding literature. Can't recommend this one enough.

One of my very favorite books as a child. So glad to be able to pass on a copy to my godson. Check out Mahy's other books - she is a wonderful writer.

This book was a very charming mystery. It had just the right amount of twists and turns to make it a good cozy curl-up-by-the-fire book. The pirates gave this book just the right amount of jazz, and the Thousand Islands really gave this book a nice touch of fantasy. Overall, I'd give this book 4 stars.

The Mixed Up Pirate's Voyage is full of surprises that will delight you and keep you laughing. This book is about an uneducated bunch of teashop owners that dream of being pirates. One day, on an impulse, they break free of the bonds of boring, everyday life and set out on the open sea. This mismatched bunch of adventurous beverage sellers decide to kidnap the famous inventor, Humbert Cashcash, who lives in the thousand islands(on island 999, to be exact) The bumbling would-be-pirates have one misadventure after another as Mahy weaves a tale of mystery, hilarity, mixed identities and a giant jigsaw puzzle together to form a story that won't be soon forgotten.

This book was a good charming mystery. It had just the right amounts of twists and turns to make it a good, curl up by the fire book. The pirates give this book, just the right amount of jazz and the thousand islands in this book, gave it just the right touch of fantasy. Overall I'd rate it 4 stars!

The book that Mahy wrote was one of the funniest books that I have ever read. This book was full of many laughs and suprises. It is about these middle age men who work very hard in a teashop and they are very tired of working. They want to do something they always wanted to do and that was to go on a voyage as pirates. So one day they just dropped eveything an set off to the thousand islands hoping to have fun. Before they set off the harmless bunch of pirates kidnapped a famous inventor to help seach for one of thoughs action filled adventures that pirates always have. If you are trying to find a funny book then this is the book for you.
