內容簡介


怪奇博物館 繼Curiosity House: The Shrunken Head女戰士頭顱後,又一怪奇展品!

能360度轉頭,號稱「貓頭鷹」的怪人+驚悚蠟像+外號叫「胖胖」的瘦子,怪奇事件再度上演中
怪奇博物館的四個孩子Philippa、Sam、Thomas和Max 離家到芝加哥渡假,無憂無慮。然而此時,他們的家愁雲慘霧,面臨關門大吉的危險。更慘的是,他們的雕刻家好友被殺害了!四人再度聯手調查,發現命案可能跟紐約一位有權有勢的女繼承人命案有關,也似乎也和四人的過去有牽連…

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
