Take one part Roald Dahl, add a pinch of Mysterious Benedict Society and a dash of Lemony Snicket. Mix with Holly Grant's unforgettable storytelling and a double helping of wit and humor, and you get this quirky and hilarious new middle-grade series!
Join the League....
After their narrow escape from a nefarious kidnapping ring, Anastasia, Ollie, and Quentin (aka The League of Beastly Dreadfuls!) are looking forward to a relaxing vacation from danger! Intrigue! Catastrophe!
Sadly, they're not going to get one. Because Anastasia makes the shocking discovery that her family is at the heart of a centuries-old scandal - a scandal that began with The Dastardly Deed. Before you can say "Bob's your uncle", the Dreadfuls have another mystery to solve: the Case of the Missing Grandfather. Can our intrepid League track down Anastasia's Vanished Gramps? Gentle listener, beware! The trail of clues leads to spine-tingling surprises. (Catastrophe! Magic! Opera! Stinky cheese! Science fairs!) Listen on if you dare!

"A fine middle volume, lit up with 'laughs and tears and the occasional fart joke.'" (Kirkus Reviews)
My 7 year old daughter and I LOVE this series! It is going to be a long wait until the third book comes out in August. The story is both intriguing and funny, and we often sat in the car longer than necessary just to keep listening. The narrator is excellent, and I am going to search out more of her performances.
