內容簡介

怪奇博物館  頭顱不見了
大鬍子美女 +聒噪愛講話的鸚鵡+亞馬遜族女頭顱 ,怪奇事件上演中


Dumfrey先生的 「好奇屋」 —怪奇博物館,展出最新入荷的收藏品:「亞馬遜族女戰士頭顱」。不幸的是,就在展覽現場,突然有位觀眾昏倒,不治,館主於是被收押。接著,女戰士頭顱被偷了!像是被女戰士詛咒一樣,博物館開始雞犬不寧,接連發生命案。館主認養的4個孩子 Philippa、Sam 、Thomas和Max各有特殊技能(讀心術、軟骨功、擲飛刀…)等,他們四決定聯手出擊,找回頭顱,解開一連串秘密。詭譎的是,嫌疑犯似乎不只一個,誰才是真正的兇手呢?

Edgar Award nominee for Best Juvenile Mystery

The book is about, among other things: the strongest boy in the world, a talking cockatoo, a faulty mind reader, a beautiful bearded lady and a nervous magician, an old museum, and a shrunken head.

Blessed with extraordinary abilities, orphans Philippa, Sam, and Thomas have grown up happily in Dumfrey’s Dime Museum of Freaks, Oddities, and Wonders. But when a fourth child, Max, a knife-thrower, joins the group, it sets off an unforgettable chain of events.

When the museum’s Amazonian shrunken head is stolen, the four are determined to get it back. But their search leads them to a series of murders and an explosive secret about their pasts.

This sensational new series—a 2016 Edgar nominee for Best Juvenile book and New York Times bestseller—combines the unparalleled storytelling gifts of Lauren Oliver with the rich knowledge of the notorious relics collector H. C. Chester.

What you will find in this book:

A rather attractive bearded lady
Several scandalous murders
A deliciously disgusting Amazonian shrunken head
Four extraordinary children with equally extraordinary abilities
A quite loquacious talking bird

What you will NOT find in this book:

 An accountant named Seymour
 A never-ending line at the post office
Brussel sprouts (shudder)
 A lecture on finishing all your homework on time
 A sweet, gooey story for nice little girls and boys
