The Unintentional Adventures of the Bland Sisters: The Jolly Regina by Kara LaReau, illustrated by Jen Hill
Looking for an adventure story with a sense of humor and unique characters? Look no further than this brand-new series for middle readers. Jaundice and Kale Bland are the sisters of the title, and they are, not to put too fine a point on it, rather bland. They prefer to avoid excitement, thank you very much. At the beginning oif the sage, they are patiently waiting at home for the return of their missing parents. It’s been years since they left on an errand, but the Bland Sisters are patient.
But their lives change when they are kidnapped by a crew of pirates, all female and bound for adventure on the high seas. Of course, it also includes a mystery that might just lead to their missing parents! Filled with puns, sly humor of the Lemony Snicket variety, and wacky illustrations. If your family enjoys quirky, witty books, this one might top your wish list!
