In the series Chris Grabenstein called 'hysterically hilarious,' the saga about the evil werepenguins of Brugaria comes to a stunning, action-packed conclusion! When Bolt, Annika, and Blackburn are given another cryptic clue by Omneseus the Seer, they know the time has come to defeat the baddest Werepenguin, 'the Stranger,' and free the world's penguins from his evil reign. Only a very special tooth can bring the Stranger down, but of course, procuring this precious item is no easy task, and it doesn't help that Bolt can't stop hearing the Stranger in his head, trying to coax him to the dark side. When Bolt stumbles into a weremole burrow and meets Grom, a human boy with a penguin birthmark who's desperate to be bitten, he starts to question whether a werepenguin can be anything but a terrible monster. Or if one born out of love might be the key to penguin salvation. As Bolt's werepenguin strengths grow more powerful, the ultimate war between good and evil looms closer. But no one can guess what's about to go down. And when an unexpected foe returns, the battle of the werepenguins IS ON.Show more
Following the book Chris Grabenstein called 'the most hysterically hilarious book I've read in years,' the saga about the evil werepenguins of Brugaria continues! When we last saw our hero Bolt Waddle, he'd narrowly escaped the clutches of the evil Baron Chordata, but not the fate of becoming a half-boy, half-penguin for life. Living with his penguin colony far from other humans, he's adjusting to life as a full-time werepenguin when his bandit friend Annika tracks him down and begs for his help. Her father has been imprisoned by the Earl of Sphen, another ruthless werepenguin who rules his small country with an iron flipper. Bolt and Annika recruit a washed-up pirate and a plucky were-gull to help with their rescue mission, but as they get closer to victory, they realize that the Earl of Sphen isn't the only werepenguin whose sinister plans could cause their downfall.Show more
'Young Frankenstein meets The Princess Bride in the most hysterically hilarious book I've read in years.'--Chris Grabenstein, #1 New York Times bestselling 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 twelve-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 read.Show more
