"Young Frankenstein meets The Princess Bride in the most hysterically hilarious book I've read in years." (Chris Grabenstein, number-one New York Times best-selling author)

All orphan Bolt Wattle has ever wanted was to find his true family. When a mysterious baron in far-off Brugaria sends for Bolt, he wonders if he's getting closer to finding his long-lost parents. But Baron Chordata appears to be a 12-year-old boy who wears tuxedos all the time, shouts at everyone, and forbids Bolt from asking questions. Things couldn't get any worse...until midnight, when the Baron bites Bolt and turns him into a half-boy, half-penguin. Then things really couldn't get worse - nope, wait, they get a lot worse.

With the help and hindrance of a plucky girl who just might be the world's greatest bandit, a whale cult led by a man whose weapon is a stale loaf of French bread, and a sinister but friendly fortune-teller who can't stop cackling, Bolt's on a quest to reverse the curse, return to human form, and stop the Baron from taking over the country of Brugaria with his army of mind-controlled penguins in what might be the weirdest - and funniest - middle-grade novel you've ever heard.
