The great piratical rumbustification ; &, The librarian and the robbers, by Margaret Mahy
This book contains two stories. The Terrapins need a babysitter and call up a babysitting agency. What they get is a one-legged naval officer and a pirate party. In the second story a librarian is kidnapped and the only thing that will save her is raging measles. I loved this book, it was funny and the stories were completely crazy. Young children will also enjoy this book.
