In the spirit of A Series of Unfortunate Events and the Incorrigible Children of Ashton Place series, The Unintentional Adventures of the Bland Sisters will captivate middle-grade readers looking for humor, hijinks, and a swashbuckling good time. Meet Jaundice and Kale Bland, two sisters who avoid excitement at any cost. Together, they patiently await the return of their parents, who left on an errand years ago and have never returned. One day, the Bland sisters are kidnapped by an all-female band of pirates. They're unwillingly swept into a high-seas romp that might just lead to solving the mystery of what happened to their parents. With Roald Dahl-esque wit, this new series is for readers who are looking for an anything-but-bland adventure.

"Kara LaReau's new series is Lemony Snicket for the younger set--with humor as snarky and pun filled but not as dark. Rosalyn Landor employs a schoolmarmish-sounding voice as narrator, opening each chapter with the definition of a word that figures prominently in the chapter. The Bland sisters, Jaundice and Kale, who live on the edge of Dullsville, sound as bland as their routine, uneventful lives. But when they're kidnapped by a crew of female pirates, the fun and the laughs begin. Each pirate's unique voice adds to the atmosphere. Fatima, the cook, is especially well developed as she displays emotions ranging from meanness to hurt feelings to friendliness--with a fine singing voice to boot! Arghh, matey, 'tis real treasure.
