I’m so excited to share the cover for the third book in the WARREN THE 13TH trilogy, WARREN THE 13TH AND THE THIRTEEN-YEAR CURSE. During my last school tour with illustrator Will Staehle, there was a lot of speculation among the students over what color the final book would be. So if you guessed blue, you win a virtual pudding cookie!
**(mild spoilers for those who haven’t read the first two books!)**
At the end of the second book in the Warren the 13th series, the Warren Hotel had transformed into a giant ship and set sail for the open seas! When Warren the 13th and the 13-Year Curse opens, Warren is adjusting to the demands of running a floating hotel and is planning his 13th birthday party when disaster strikes–the hotel is shipwrecked on a strange island. To make matters worse, his octopus-like friend Sketchy is kidnapped by a traveling circus! Warren and his friends must solve a series of riddles to find the next location of the circus and rescue their friend before it’s too late. Along the way, they meet a delightful new cast of characters, including elderly pirates, a sea witch, a talking clam, and a giant sea monster. As Warren pursues Sketchy’s kidnappers, he will learn the truth of his friend’s mysterious origins–as well as one final secret of the Warren Hotel.
