Warren the 13th and The All-Seeing Eye
“A whimsical mystery with a lot of heart and spine-tingling illustrations, this novel will circulate as soon as children open it.”—School Library Journal, Starred Review
An illustrated middle grade novel with Gothic and Victorian overtones featuring the misadventures of a cursed 12-year-old bellhop trying to save his family's hotel from the clutches of his evil Aunt Anaconda. Full of puzzles, secret codes, outrageous inventions, and hundreds of intricate illustrations.
Warren the 13th and the Whispering Woods
“Del Rio delivers another rollicking adventure with this sequel...Staehle’s abundant etchinglike illustrations play on the story’s humor and drama, resulting in a mystery that is fresh and imaginative.”—Booklist
Twelve-year-old Warren has learned that his beloved hotel can walk, and now it’s ferrying guests around the countryside, transporting tourists to strange and foreign destinations. But when an unexpected detour brings everyone into the dark and sinister Malwoods, Warren finds himself separated from his hotel and his friends — and racing after them on foot through a forest teeming with witches, snakes, talking trees, and mind-boggling riddles. Once again, you can expect stunning illustrations and gorgeous design from Will Staehle on every page — along with plenty of nonstop action and adventure!
Tales from Lovecraft Middle School: Professor Gargoyle
“Gilman's debut and series kick-off is great fun for fans of light horror. The changing image on the cover will snag interest, and the spookily realistic black-and-white illustrations throughout complete this slick, scary, funny package. [There are] delectable hints of age-appropriate, Lovecraftian otherness...with none of the purple prose.”—Kirkus Reviews
Strange things are happening at Lovecraft Middle School. Rats are leaping from lockers. Students are disappearing. The school library is a labyrinth of secret corridors. And the science teacher is acting very peculiar – in fact, he just might be a monster-in-disguise. Twelve-year-old Robert Arthur knew that seventh grade was going to be weird, but this is ridiculous!
