THE WOODEN MILE VOLUME 1 PIRATES WEREWOLVES LOST TREASURE AND A SPOOKY HOUSE
Something Wickedly Weird is most definitely here Crampton Rock seems like a lovely seaside town at least until dark. When eleven-year-old Stanley Buggles inherits a house from a mysterious uncle he didn't know he had, he also inherits a mystery and some strange and sinister new neighbors. The questions begin to pile up: Why are all the dogs in town three-legged? Why is no one on the streets after dark? Is it true that the man who runs the candy shop is a werewolf? And why do those shoemakers look an awful lot like pirates? With the help of Mrs. Carelli, a housekeeper, and a talking stuffed fish, Stanley begins to unravel the mysteries that haunt his great-uncle's death and have set their sights on him. A thrilling, spooky, and funny read, and the first installment of a kid-pleasing new series.
“Young readers will find print size and short chapters approachable, and will enjoy following the action on the map of the island.” —Library Media Connection
