Description

Meet Warren the 13th, a cursed twelve-year-old Victorian bellhop who's terribly unlucky, yet perpetually optimistic, hard-working, and curious. Warren's pride and joy is his family's Warren Hotel, but he's been miserable ever since his evil Aunt Anaconda took over the management. Anaconda believes a mysterious treasure known as The All-Seeing Eye is hidden somewhere in the walls of the hotel, and she'll do anything to find it. If Warren wants to preserve his family's legacy, he'll need to find the treasure first - if the hotel's many strange and wacky guests don't beat him to it!

Review quote

"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

"A whimsical mystery with a lot of heart and spine-tingling illustrations, this novel will circulate as soon as children open it."--School Library Journal, Starred Review "The riveting story had interesting characters, riddles, and lots of drama. Readers will get caught up in the mystery and will want to keep turning pages to find out what happens next."--Nicolas Curry, Kid Reporter for Time for Kids

"Beautifully and amusingly designed and illustrated, featuring a plot filled with twists and riddles, this clever tale of mysterious goings-on at a run-down hotel proves to be an unlikely winner."--Common Sense Media, 4 out 5 stars

"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

"All the delicious chaos of Warren the 13th and the All-Seeing Eye--first of a planned series--is wonderfully cloaked in a Victorian sensibility and design, a bit of Edward Gorey, a bit of Tim Burton."--Shelf Awareness

"Just the ticket for fans of Unfortunate Events in dim corridors and murky subterranean chambers."--Kirkus Reviews

"No amount of care was spared in this truly charming, wonderfully spun middle-grade adventure."--Karin Snelson, Shelf Awareness Pro

"Original, funny . . . it reminded me partly of Hotel Transylvania mixed with Coraline."--Joseph, Age 11

"This story is absolutely enchanting and is a must-have for any child who enjoys adventure and magic, whether this book is read to them or they read it for themselves."--New York Journal of Books

"You'll fall in love."--BlogHer

"You don't have to be a middle grade reader to fall for Warren and his desire to save his beloved family hotel (and home) from the clutches of his evil step-aunt."--Beth Fish Reads

"You know those rare books that keep you guessing all the way through? Warren the 13th and the All-Seeing Eye is exactly that: surprising, delightful, upbeat, with a terrific young hero. Good, clean, mysterious fun."--Bookfoolery

"Young and old(ish) alike will be charmed by Warren the 13th, the puzzles, the stories, and the illustrations. The mysteries are perfect for the whole family"-Beth Fish Reads
