Warning: this description has not been authorized by Pseudonymous Bosch. As much as he’d love to sing the praises of his book (he is very vain), he wouldn’t want you to hear about his brave 11-year old heroes, Cass and Max-Ernest. Or about how a mysterious box of vials, the Symphony of Smells, sends them on the trail of a magician who has vanished under strange (and stinky) circumstances. And he certainly wouldn’t want you to know about the hair-raising adventures that follow and the nefarious villains they face.

“We have seven in our book club this summer. We are enjoying reading Golly-whopper Games by Jody Feldman” – Margo
“Since the girls outnumber the boys in my summer school class, we now have the BOBC (Boys Only Book Club). We just finished a Freddie Pickle book. The girls overheard how excited the boys were about the book that they now want to read it. The boys love the idea of the “club.” It makes reading fun, not a chore.” – Robin
“There are 5 in our book club and we’re reading the Percy Jackson series, right now we’re reading Sea of Monsters.” – Dawn
