About this title

Synopsis:

When 14-year-old Wolfgang decides he's had enough of his mother's new boyfriend and takes off for the wilds of Tassie, he has no idea what he's getting into. Between hiding from the Russian mafia, searching for a missing chimp, and helping a concert violinist recover his memory, Wolfgang is in for the ride of his life.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 5-7 - Wolfgang (changed from Edam) is obsessed with both Mozart and the trumpet, but he can't find anyone else in his Australian town who shares his passion. Online, he meets Sal, a girl from Tasmania who is partial to the Russian violinist Vladimir Gronski, and the two bond over music. A few e-mails later, following a disastrous confrontation with Trevor, his mom's new live-in boyfriend, Wolfgang is on a boat bound for Tasmania. Onboard, he just happens to plow right into Gronski, knocking him out and causing amnesia. The mayhem that ensues involves the Russian mafia, an odd religious sect, a missing monkey, and, of course, the inevitable reconciliation with Trevor. Newton treads on the familiar territory of feeling out of step with one's peers and having to adjust to new families. In an effort to make the tale unique, however, he throws in ridiculously implausible elements that, while clearly meant to be humorous, simply require too much suspension of disbelief. The bizarre twists in the story make it almost impossible to care about Wolfgang's journey toward acceptance. - Ronni Krasnow, New York Public Library

Shipping Terms:

U.S. Shipping:
We ship our books according to media rate through the US Postal Services. This is the cheapest way for us to ship you your books. We will contact you if shipping will cost more than the listed price. Please note that heavier and larger-sized books will cost more to ship as the general shipping cost is used for average-weight/sized books. If you would like your book insured, specifically packed or delivered faster it will cost more and you will need to contact us.

All our packages are wrapped in foam, bubble wrap, peanuts or a combination thereof.

International Shipping:
As a standard for shipping, we ship all our books in a Global Priority Flat Rate mailer envelope. This costs just a couple bucks more than ground and will get there in 4 to 10 business days instead of the one to two months it would for Ground. Priority in a box costs a bit more (about 17.50,) but has that added bit of protection. We're more than happy to ship Ground for $9.00 or Express for $30.00. Let us know what you prefer if the option isn't listed.

All our packages are wrapped in foam, bubble wrap, peanuts or a combination thereof.
