Passing pirates who smell Grandma's delicious noodle casserole decide that Grandma and her pet parrot Oliver are coming with them! Granddaughter Melissa isn't going to let that happen without a fight, though, so she goes along and immediately starts planning their escape. This illustration style is not my favorite, as it's very intricate and traditional, but Melissa's ingenuity and the satisfying ending more than make up for it. Also I like how Grandma brandishes her rolling pin on the cover.
