Curiosity House The Shrunken Head by: Lauren Oliver & H.C. Chester

Four orphans are living with Dumfrey in his Dime Museum of Freaks, Oddities, and Wonders and their lives are about to change dramatically.  In The Shrunken Head from the Curiosity House series by Lauren Oliver and H.C. Chester we find out the special talents of these four orphans and see how these talents help them save their home and the family they have there.

This is a book that jumps into a great adventure as soon as you begin reading.  Dumfrey is very excited to show his customers his newest find, a shrunken head.  However, after the first showing the head is stolen.  One of the customers is also found dead the very next morning.  Soon a local newspaper reporter is snooping around the museum and writing stories that put the children in danger.  As the children try to avoid the newspaper man they uncover other clues to the stolen head but they also find more people dead.  Is the reporter correct in his statement that the head is cursed?  With the help of their special talents the children are able to uncover the truth and help themselves and all those that live in the museum.  Some of the information that the children uncover will leave you breathless as there a few surprises as you come to the end of this book.  

You will love the special talents of these children, I'm not going to give them away to you as you must read this book.  In fact, I'm sure a few of you will want at least one of these talents.  I think this is another great book and look forward to reading more in this series.

Happy Daily Reading
