Welcome to Wonderland #1: Home Sweet Motel

by Chris Grabenstein

A new, highly illustrated paper-over-board humor series from Chris Grabenstein, the New York Times Bestselling Author of Escape from Mr. Lemoncello’s Library, and co-author of I Funny, House of Robots, and Treasure Hunters!

There’s always something wacky happening when you live at a motel, and 11 year old P.T. Wilkie (named after PT Barnum, of course!) has grown up at the world’s wackiest one-the Wonderland (the down on its heels, Florida beach motel his granddad, Walt, opened the year before that other Walt opened his more famous resort just ½ hour away…!) Like his namesake, P.T. loves a good story. So when the motel’s in trouble, he knows only his tall tales can save the day. P.T. joins forces with extended stay guest and business whiz kid Gloria Ortega and together they launch one wild venture after another hoping to make enough money to save the Wonderland–all while trying to get to the bottom of who the strange new guests are on the 3rd floor. Could they really be the infamous jewel thieves that PT once saw on TV? And come to think of it…where did those guys hide their loot, anyway?
