From Chris Grabenstein, the bestselling author of Escape from Mr. Lemoncello's Library and coauthor with James Patterson of I Funny, House of Robots, and Treasure Hunters, comes the second hilarious, fun-in-the-sun adventure in his new illustrated series about all the wacky things that happen when you live in a motel!
There's always something wacky happening when you live in a motel, and P.T. (named after P. T. Barnum, of course) has grown up at the world's wackiest! When word gets out that the hottest teen idols in Hollywood (plus current YouTube sensation Kevin the Monkey!) will be filming their next movie--Beach Party Surf Monkey--right in St. Pete's Beach, Florida, P.T. and his friend Gloria know that the Wonderland would be the perfect location. Now they just have to convince the producers!
But when things start to go wrong (crazed fans? missing stars?), it will take all of Gloria's business genius and P.T.'s wild stories to save the movie before both it and the Wonderland are all washed up!
“It's compulsively readable, pulling readers in with smart characters, well-positioned dynamics, and a relentless pace…A worthy sequel that improves upon the original and keeps the good times rolling.”—Kirkus Reviews
“Grabenstein continues the adventures of P. T. and Gloria with a fast-paced, highly readable story that delivers humor, adventure, a bit of mystery, and plenty of fun in the Florida sun…
Grabenstein has emerged as a middle-grade powerhouse.”—Booklist
