Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Tom Angleberger's latest, loopiest middle-grade novel begins when M'Lady Luggertuck loosens her corset (it's never been loosened before!), thereby setting off a chain of events in which all the strict rules of Smugwick Manor are abandoned. When, as a result of "the Loosening," the precious family heirloom, the Luggertuck Lump (quite literally a lump), goes missing, the Luggertucks look for someone to blame. Is it Horton Halfpott, the good-natured but lowly kitchen boy who can't tell a lie? Or one of the many colorful cast members in this silly romp of a mystery.

Praise for Horton Halfpott

and#8220;A positively gleeful historical mystery farce. Short chapters, a fast pace and plenty of linguistic and slapstistic humor will have young readers hoping that a sequel is planned. The scribbly pen-and-ink chapter-heading cartoon illustrations are just icing on the cakeand#8212;or pickle and#233;clair. A romp from start to finish.and#8221; and#8211;Kirkus Reviews

and#8220;Exaggerated black-and-white drawings emphasize the often wacky humor in this goofy faux-British mystery. Sprawling, outlandish tale.and#8221; and#8211;The Bulletin of the Center for Childrenand#8217;s Books

and#8220;Readers will enjoy Anglebergerand#8217;s penchant for the absurd as well as his many droll asides. With Anglebergerand#8217;s many eclectic characters, his wild-and-witty storytelling, and a lighthearted but perplexing mysteryand#8212;involving a and#8220;lumpand#8221; of diamonds, a couple of wigs, and a bust of Napoleonand#8212;readers are in for a treat.and#8221; and#8211;Publishers Weekly

and#8220;From the author of The Strange Case of Origami Yoda, hereand#8217;s an amusing romp of a mystery that balances skulduggery with just rewards.and#8221; and#8211;Booklist

and#160;and#8220;Much like Dickens or Dahl, an opinionated narrator with a strong sense of the ridiculous directs this story.and#8221; and#8211;School Library Journal

Synopsis:

When Joules and Kevin Rockmanand#8217;s parents drop them off at Camp Whatsitooya on their way to an International Spamathon, the twins expect a summer of marshmallows, campfires, and canoe trips. What they do not expect is to defend the earth from an invasion of sugar-addicted, murderous, seven-foot-tall rabbits from another galaxy. Happily, the Rockman twins, veteran watchers of the Late, Late, Late Creepy Show for Insomniacs, are unusually well-prepared for dealing with monstrous beings from outer space. If only their fellow campers were so lucky.

Andrea Beaty, author of several very funny picture books and a mysterious novel, here reaches new heights of hilarity and verbal dexterity in a novel sure to become a campand#151;ba-dum-dumand#151;classic.
