Lauren Oliver and H.C. Chester
Curiosity House, The Shrunken Head by Lauren Oliver and H.C. Chester is an exciting book, set in the 1930s in New York. When a fourth child joins the group of orphans with extraordinary abilities living in Dumfrey’s Dime Museum of Freaks, Oddities, and Wonders, murders begin happening, and people think it’s linked to the shrunken head, the newest addition to the museum’s collection. When the head is stolen, Max, Pippa, Thomas, and Sam will do all the can to solve the Curse of the Shrunken Head. One of the best parts about the book is the characters, so different from each other, and anybody I have ever met. This is the best book I have ever read!
