The Uncanny Train of Lost Things Express!
Don't get lost on your way to hear about The Train of Lost Things by Ammi-Joan Paquette and The Uncanny Express (The Unintentional Adventures of the Bland Sisters Book 2) by Kara LaReau! Kids will love these stories that are by turns zany and heartfelt. Ammi-Joan and Kara will do a reading, followed by a Q & A and signing. About The Train of Lost Things: A magical story about a boy’s love for his dying father and his journey to the mythic Train of Lost Things, where beloved lost objects are rescued and protected until they can be returned. Perfect for fans of The Phantom Tollbooth, The Bridge to Terabithia, and Lost in the Sun.Marty cherishes the extra-special birthday present his dad gave him—a jean jacket on which he’s afixed numerous buttons—because it’s a tie to his father, who is sick and doesn’t have much time left. So when his jacket goes missing, Marty is devastated. When his dad tells him the story of the Train of Lost Things, a magical train that flies through the air collecting objects lost by kids, Marty is sure that the train must be real, and that if he can just find the train and get his jacket back, he can make his dad better as well.It turns out that the train is real—and it’s gone out of control! Instead of just collecting things that have been accidentally lost, the train has been stealing things. Along with Dina and Star, the girls he meets aboard the train, Marty needs to figure out what’s going on and help set it right. As he searches for his jacket, and for a way to fix the train, Marty begins to wonder whether he’s looking for the right things after all. And he realizes that sometimes you need to escape reality in order to let it sink in.In this achingly beautiful adventure, it is the power of memories, and the love between a father and son, that ultimately save the day. About The Uncanny Express: All aboard for another unintentional adventure with the two blandest sisters of all time 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 solve the mystery—with the help of famous detective Hugo Fromage.An inventive story in the tradition of Agatha Christie’s Murder on the Orient Express, TheUnintentional Adventures of the Bland Sisters: The Uncanny Express has all the whimsy and humor that readers who are looking for an anything-but-bland adventure will love.
