Just wondering . . . and a Changing Hands Event

So I was looking through my daughter’s latest Scholastic flyer and I saw this book by Stuart Gibbs. Is it just me, or did the rest of you suddenly wonder whether George and Martha had wandered into a bad neighborhood?

I bet it was George. He did, after all, have that gold tooth.

On a completely unrelated note, I’m going to be at this year’s YAllapalooza on January 29th, at 4pm with a bunch of cool authors. Here’s more info:
