There's something fishy going on at Bloor's Academy, the magical boarding school 12-year-old Charlie Bone attends. New student Dagobert Endless is endowed with the talent of drowning people--and he's getting Charlie into trouble. But what else is he responsible for? Is he connected with the mysterious howling in the night, the ramblings of a strange beast, or missing were-boy Asa Pike? Simon Jones blends an invigorated, snappy read with vocal cameos of a host of characters. Among these are the mean, elderly voice of Charlie's unlikable grandmother, who is suspicious of Charlie's sleuthing; the squeaky voice of his best friend, Billy; and the growling tones of his supportive Uncle Peyton.
