Quotes & Awards

  • “Readers will enjoy Angleberger’s penchant for the absurd as well as his many droll asides. With Angleberger’s many eclectic characters, his wild-and-witty storytelling, and a lighthearted but perplexing mystery—involving a ‘lump’ of diamonds, a couple of wigs, and a bust of Napoleon—readers are in for a treat.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “From the author of The Strange Case of Origami Yoda, here’s an amusing romp of a mystery that balances skulduggery with just rewards.”

    Booklist

  • “Much like Dickens or Dahl, an opinionated narrator with a strong sense of the ridiculous directs this story.”

    School Library Journal

  • “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…A romp from start to finish.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • “Exaggerated black-and-white drawings emphasize the often wacky humor in this goofy faux-British mystery. Sprawling, outlandish tale.”

    Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

  • Selected for the Summer 2011 Kids' Indie Next List: Ages 9-12
  • A 2012 Edgar Allan Poe Award Nominee for Best Juvenile Fiction

    " A lowly kitchen boy helps to solve a mystery, save a damsel and deal with land bound pirates. Hilarious! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Erin | 9/27/2011

    " Cute, but not better than the Origami Yoda series. Bonus -- the cover glows in the dark and there's an interesting mini-bio about Baskerville and his font (used in the book) at the end. "
