Warren the 13th and the Whispering Woods (Book 2)
Author: Tania Del Rio | Illustrator: Will Staehle | Hardcover
Warren the 13th is back in another lushly illustrated middle grade adventure in the spirit of Edward Gorey and Lemony Snicket. This fast-paced and beautifully-designed sequel to Warren the 13th and the All-Seeing Eye is packed with nonstop action, adventure, and mystery for middle grade readers. 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, all accompanied by stunning illustrations and gorgeous design from Will Staehle on every page.
"An engaging mystery to unravel, with a few nice twists and surprises along the way. . . . It's a fair bet that for many the main attraction of Warren the 13th and the All-Seeing Eye will be Staehle's lavish illustrations." --New York Times Book Review
"An adventure with echoes of classic children's titles like Raskin's The Westing Game and Dahl's The Witches. . . . Stylish, exciting, funny, and just slightly macabre, this entertaining novel bodes well for Warren's future adventures." --Publishers Weekly
