After a slight misunderstanding involving a horrible governess, oatmeal, and a jar of tadpoles, siblings Tobias and Charlotte Eggars find themselves abandoned by their father at the gates of a creepy reform school. Evil mysteries are afoot at Witherwood, where the grounds are patrolled by vicious creatures after dark and kids are locked in their rooms. Charlotte and Tobias soon realize that they are in terrible danger―especially because the head of Witherwood has perfected the art of mind control.

If only their amnesiac father would recover and remember that he has two missing children. If only Tobias and Charlotte could solve the dark mystery and free the kids at Witherwood―and ultimately save themselves.

Review:

A Missouri Mark Twain Award Nominee

“Skye's old-fashioned, witty writing style and amusing humor is the perfect fit for fans of the Spiderwick Chronicles and A Series of Unfortunate Events series.” ―Booklist

“A brother and sister find themselves trapped in a frightening school that threatens to destroy their minds in this dark comedy. . . Skye writes very much in the same vein as Lemony Snicket, with menacing dark humor and outlandish characters.” ―Kirkus Reviews

“In this Snicketesque series opener, Skye crafts an imaginative, absorbing tale in which nothing is as it seems.” ―Publishers Weekly

“Skye's latest novel offers middle school readers an exciting and slightly unsettling story spiced with a little rude humor and plenty of creepy situations. Short chapters, abundant plot twists, and frequent witty asides to the reader add to the novel's appeal.” ―VOYA

“Dark and funny . . . it will appeal to kids with a sharp sense of humor and a budding interest in Lemony Snicket.” ―The Bulletin

“Quite funny and has a lot of laugh-out-loud moments. . . . The idea of a hybrid Willy Wonka/Frankenstein character is original and hilarious.” ―School Library Journal on Wonkenstein

“Highly amusing new series starter. . . . Skye gives Rob a self-deprecating charm and highlights the pleasures of books both subtly and effectively.” ―Booklist on Wonkenstein

“Filled with spot-on commentary and a wince-inducing supporting cast, middle grade guys won't be able to keep Wonkenstein to themselves. . . . This pitch-perfect offering should appeal to reluctant readers, not to mention the legion Wimpy Kid fans.” ―Shelf Awareness on Wonkenstein

“Skye captures all the silly action in the winning text-plus-cartoons format. . . . Rob's dry commentary on his family, school, and social life is sure to provoke laughs.” ―Publishers Weekly on Potterwookiee
