Here is a new book that is obviously a start of a series. Dr Cuthbert Soup is the author of A Whole Nother Story ~ a wickedly funny book about an inventor father and his kids who must outwit a multitude of bad guys. I am pretty sure Dr Soup is a pseudonym just like Lemony Snicket but who cares....his book is one of the best new reads out there. It is a clever idea that both kids and some adults will love. This is perfect for the reluctant reader who can't abide by stodgy books.
Unlike the Snicket books, A Whole Nother Story is more intrigue than horror~which is more along the lines of what I like to read.
