Tom Angleberger's latest, loopiest middle-grade vel begins when M'Lady Luggertuck loosens her corset (it's never been loosened before!), thereby setting off a chain of events in which all the strict rules of Smugwick Mar are abandoned. When, as a result of the Loosening, the precious family heirloom, the Luggertuck Lump, (quite literally a lump), goes missing, the Luggertucks look for someone to blame. Is it Horton Halfpott, the good-natured but lowly kitchen boy who can't tell a lie? OR one of the many colourful cast members in this silly romp of a mystery.
Tom Angleberger is the author of the runaway bestseller The Strange Case of Crigami Yoda and the sequel Darth Paper Strikes Back.
