Warren the 13th and the Whispering Woods: A Novel


Warren the 13th is back in another lushly illustrated middle grade adventure.

This sequel to Warren the 13th and the All-Seeing Eye begins soon after the first book’s conclusion. Twelve-year-old Warren has learned that his beloved hotel can walk, and now it’s ferrying guests around the countryside, transporting tourists to strange and foreign destinations. But when an unexpected detour brings everyone into the dark and sinister Malwoods, Warren finds himself separated from his hotel and his friends—and racing after them on foot through a forest teeming with witches, snakes, talking trees, and mind-boggling riddles. Once again, you can expect stunning illustrations and gorgeous design from Will Staehle on every page—along with plenty of nonstop action and adventure!

    Warren the 13th is back! In this sequel that takes place shortly after the first book, Warren has only recently learned that hotel is a walking one! He along with his best friends Petula and Sketchy, along with a rag-tag group of adults have been cruising around the country, picking up well to-do guests along the way. Where his life previously was full of fear and disappointment, now Warren has a life filled with adventure and friendship. His biggest concern is the critics. Nonetheless, things seem to be going smoothly. That is until the Warren(the hotel's name) crashes to the ground, he loses all his guests, and then is kidnapped by a mimic. The mimic replicates Warrens image, and calls himself Worrin. Worrin soon takes over the hotel with the intent to sell it to the Witch Queen, Calvina, and Warren is forced to chase the Warren on foot. Unfortunately for Warren, he is smack dab in the middle of the Malwoods-which is filled to the brim with witches and many more startling creatures. Will Warren survive on his own? Will he save his hotel? Will his friends realize that Worrin is an impostor? This book is filled with danger, and twists in every chapter. Although since this is an AR book not all the pictures were inserted yet, the images that were included were wonderful and added to the story tremendously. I really liked how Tania del Rio continued Warren's story. I felt as if I was really entwined in the story, and just enough backstory was added so that it could be understand even without reading the first book. I recommend this book for elementary and middle grade aged kids. I rate this book 4 out of 5 stars. I received this book as part of the Advance Review Club.
