COVER REVEAL! The Unintentional Adventures of the Bland Sisters: The Jolly Regina

Ahoy, readers! Feast your eyes on the cover of Cottager Kara LaReau's hilarious new middle grade novel, illustrated by Jen Hill! Sailing into bookstores January 10, 2017 . . .
In the spirit of A Series of Unfortunate Events and the Incorrigible Children of Ashton Place series, The Unintentional Adventures of the Bland Sisters: The Jolly Regina will captivate middle-grade readers looking for humor, hijinks, and a swashbuckling good time. Meet Jaundice and Kale Bland, two sisters who avoid excitement at any cost. Together, they patiently await the return of their parents, who left on an errand years ago and have never returned.
One day, the Bland sisters are kidnapped by an all-female band of pirates. They’re unwillingly swept into a high-seas romp that might just lead to solving the mystery of what happened to their parents. With whimsical illustrations and Roald Dahl–esque wit, The Unintentional Adventures of the Bland Sisters: The Jolly Regina is the visually stunning, laugh-out-loud funny start to a new series for readers who are looking for an anything-but-bland adventure.
Be sure to plunder the Abrams booth and pick up this booty-ful galley at BEA (booth 1801), ALA (booth 1226), and ILA (booth 2307), or check it out via NetGalley!
