Summary
In this second book in the New York Times bestselling Curiosity House series by exceptional author Lauren Oliver and shadowy recluse H. C. Chester, four extraordinary children must avenge their friend's death, try to save their home, and unravel the secrets of their past . . . before their past unravels them.

Pippa, Sam, Thomas, and Max are happy to be out of harm's way now that the notorious villain Nicholas Rattigan is halfway across the country in Chicago. But unfortunately their home, Dumfreys's Dime Museum of Freaks, Oddities, and Wonders, is in danger of closing its doors forever.

But their troubles only get worse. The four friends are shocked when their beloved friend, famous sculptor Siegfried Eckleberger, is murdered. As they investigate, they find clues that his death may be tied to the murder of a rich and powerful New York heiress, as well as to their own pasts.

This is the second book in the series and so boasts many wondrous and mysterious things inside, such as:

Howie, the "Human Owl," whose head turns just about all the way around A mean but important house cat Some perfectly ghastly wax sculptures A very thin boy named Chubby An awful mechanical leg

It continues not to have:

A cautionary tale about running with scissors A list of time-consuming chores Nutritious and decidedly not delicious vegetables A perfectly sweet bedtime story about a wayward bunny Two wet kisses on the cheek from your aunt Mildred

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Having narrowly escaped the clutches of Professor Rattigan in Curiosity House: The Shrunken Head (2015), the children of Dumfrey's Dime Museum of Freaks, Oddities, and Wonders are finally starting to feel back to normal. Telepath Pippa can sometimes read more than what's in people's pockets; Max's knife throwing is on point (mostly); Sam is like a mini Lenny from Of Mice and Men, with his incredible strength and desire for a pet; and Thomas' contortions get him into and out of some tight situations. In a ploy to drum up business for the museum, Mr. Dumfrey decides to re-create the crime of the century : the recent murder of a New York City heiress. Tensions rise among the four orphans as a newcomer joins their ranks, Rattigan poses a continued threat, and another murder touches their lives. Could the two deaths be linked? Oliver and Chester have created another quirky middle-grade mystery that will have no trouble drawing a crowd. Occasionally, plot points are belabored, but most readers will be too caught up in the unusual characters and intrigue to mind.--Smith, Julia Copyright 2016 Booklist"
