  • Flight of the Bluebird (The Unintentional Adventures of the Bland

    Kara LaReau

    Product Code: BTPHE
    Hardback
    Fasten your seat belts for some unexpected turbulence ahead, as Jaundice and Kale Bland are back for their final unintentional adventure! Now that they've returned from the Uncanny Valley to find their home in Dullsville in absolute shambles, the sisters are rescued by high-flying aviatrix Beatrix Airdale. This time, they're jetting off (literally) to Egypt to uncover the mysteries of a magical scarab. By way of Casablanca and after foiling multiple attacks along the way (thanks to Jaundice's nautical knot-tying skills and Kale's super-sleuth powers of observation), the Bland Sisters are reunited with their parents. But it turns out that Mom and Dad aren't as bland-or as "Bland"-as Jaundice and Kale remember. Thanks to their mother's old archeology notebook, the Bland Sisters uncover their parents' real identities and help them achieve victory in one final, family-filled adventure.

  • The Jolly Regina (The Unintentional Adventures of the Bland Sisters Book 1)

    Kara LaReau

    Product Code: BLXAG
    Paperback
    In the spirit of A Series of Unfortunate Events, the Unintentional Adventures of the Bland Sisters stars Jaundice and Kale Bland-two sisters who avoid excitement at any cost. Instead, they eat tasteless oatmeal, rarely venture into bright sunlight, and read only Dr. Snoote's Dictionary, because storybooks are just too thrilling. Together, they await the return of their parents, who left for an errand years ago and have never come back. One day, a knock on the door leads to the Bland sisters' kidnapping by an all-female band of pirates-but this is only the beginning of their escapades. Filled with Roald Dahl-esque humour, hilarious high jinks, and swashbuckling, The Unintentional Adventures of the Bland Sisters: The Jolly Regina will appeal to middle-grade readers looking for an anything-but-bland adventure.

    Hardback
    Jaundice and Kale are back from their adventure on the high seas, and they are settling back into a quiet life in Dullsville, just the way they like it. The tea is tepid, the oatmeal is tasteless, and the socks are ripe for darning . . . until Aunt Shallot shows up and reveals herself to be anything but the dull relation they were expecting. Instead, she tells her nieces she is Magique, Queen of Magic, and she's on her way to a big show and in need of two willing assistants. As Magique and the Bland sisters board the Uncanny Express, they meet a cast of mystifying characters. And when Magique goes missing, it's up to Jaundice and Kale to rescue the magician-with the help of famous detective Hugo Fromage. An inventive story in the tradition of Agatha Christie's Murder on the Orient Express, The Unintentional Adventures of the Bland Sisters: The Uncanny Express has all the whimsy and humour that readers who are looking for an anything-but-bland adventure will love.
