More About The League of Beastly Dreadfuls, Book 1 by Holly Grant
 
 
 
Overview
A creepy Victorian house, secretive aunties, and a great escape combine in this debut that is part Mysterious Benedict Society, part Roald Dahl, and all quirky, smart, hilarious storytelling. Join the League. . . .
Anastasia is a completely average almost-eleven-year-old. That is, UNTIL her parents die in a tragic vacuum-cleaner accident. UNTIL she's rescued by two long-lost great-aunties. And UNTIL she's taken to their delightful and, er, "authentic" Victorian home, St. Agony's Asylum for the Criminally Insane.
But something strange is going on at the asylum. Anastasia soon begins to suspect that her aunties are not who they say they are. So when she meets Ollie and Quentin, two mysterious brothers, the three join together to plot their great escape
"WONDERFULLY WITTY. It reminds me of Roald Dahl's "The Twits" only in an insane asylum."--Chris Grabenstein, author of "Escape from Mr. Lemoncello's Library
""A yummy debut, though readers with sensitive stomachs would be well-advised to check them at the door."--"Kirkus Reviews," starred review
"Just the right mix of humor, magic, maliciousness, and suspense"--"Booklist
""First-time author Grant is gifted at immersing readers in her fantastical world, infused with comically absurd details like Anastasia's grudge-holding "revenge-pooper" guinea pig. It's clear that Anastasia is anything but average, and her adventures are just beginning.""--Publishers Weekly"
