First, the Ironic Gentleman isn't mentioned for at least the first third of the book, and until it has been, the name is nonsensical. Adrienne Kress is a Canadian actress and author whose titles include the children's adventure Timothy and the Dragon's Gate, the girl-power steampunk novel The Friday Society, the angelic abduction/teen romance thriller Outcast, and a spinoff of the Looking Glass Wars trilogy co-written with the series' creator, Frank Beddor.

Eventually, Alex ends up on the Ironic Gentleman, face to face with the dreaded Captain Steele the Inevitable . Mr. Lane's presentation of Alex and the Ironic Gentleman is one of the best audio books I have ever heard. Highly Entertaining and spot on interpretation of the book.

LOVE this book. My bro got it for me when I was 12, but read it in my mid teens, to this day (mid twenties) it remains to be one of my favorite books. Full of wit, humor, and adventure, this book keeps you pulled into the wonderful world of pirates, talking Octopi, and soul-sucking machines. 10/10 would recommend to anybody! (well maybe for kids 10+, the soul-sucker even freaked me out a little)

Such a great story and well written. Such a hard book to find but well worth the time to look for it!

Alex goes on amazing adventures to save her school teacher from the evil wrath of the pirates aboard the ironic gentlemen. But she gets sidetracked and starts helping the pirates look for treasure. She then realizes that she has to go back to her teacher to save him. They did find treasure, and they started a cool school on the Ironic Gentlemen. I loved this book and think you should read it.

Not finished reading yet. So far it's mildly amusing, slightly more interesting; writing not bad, but certainly it's not wonderful.

This book is truly a great book.I would recommend it to anyone .my favorite parts are how well it was written and the story.
Alex Morningside is a 10 1/2 year old girl who’s often mistaken for a boy; she wears her hair short and is something of a tomboy. Orphaned at a young age, she lives with her uncle in their home above his doorknob shop. When Mr. Underwood, a new teacher, shows up in her sixth grade classroom at the prestigious Wigpowder-Steele Academy, Alex finds herself finally liking school. Mr. Underwood has a good sense of humor and is fun to talk with.

Mr. Underwood also has a family secret – he’s the descendant of a famous pirate family. When he’s kidnapped by a rival pirate family over a long-secret buried treasure, Alex is the only one who can help him. She goes on a journey that will take her through strange places, where she meets equally strange people and one Extremely Ginormous Octopus.
The book is a fun adventure for young ‘tweens, with enough interesting characters and plot twists to keep a reader’s interest. The only problem for me is in the occasional plodding of the storyline, which bogs down the story and may bore less patient or committed readers. The main characters – Alex and Mr. Underwood, to a degree – are fairly well-developed, and the supporting players don’t really need to be: they aren’t part of the story for long enough to necessitate it.
