Warren the 13th and the All-Seeing Eye

Warren the 13th is the latest in a long line of Warrens to own and operate The Warren Hotel.  Well, Warren mostly dreams of operating the hotel since he is just a kid and his Uncle Rupert is running things until Warren is 18.

In just five years Uncle Rupert and his horrible wife, Aunt Annaconda have run the hotel into the ground.  Rupert spends most of his time napping, and Annaconda is destroying the hotel in a search for something called The All-Seeing Eye.

Warren is left to do the best he can to take care of the hotel on his own.  He doesn't believe in the All-Seeing Eye, but one day he accidently finds a clue that will change his mind.  He also discovers that Annaconda is actually a witch who believes the eye will give her incredible power.

Now he is in a desperate race with Annaconda to find the treasure.  Will Warren and his friends triumph, or will Annaconda and her minions destroy the hotel in their quest for power?  Read this new book written by Tania Del Rio and illustrated by Will Staehle to find out!

This is a fun tongue in cheek mystery for fans of Lemony Snicket.  The story is fast-paced, and the characters are delightfully bizarre.  Staehle's woodcut style illustrations add nicely to the overall effect of the book. With sequels to follow, this will be a must read for fans of quirky mysteries.
