So remember my Top Ten Tuesday list of Most Anticipated Reads for the Second Half of the Year? Potions in the Pizza should have been on it. A million times over. The reason it wasn't on the list? I found out about its publication FIVE HOURS AFTER the post was published. Really, Universe?
Nevertheless, this is one of my most anticipated reads for the rest of 2016. Imagine* it tucked neatly into the #2 spot on that list of mine, right under Eoin Colfer's Iron Man novel and just above Rowling's Cursed Child. Oi! Don't give me that look! I've been waiting years to read this middle grade adventure. Years! I only started reading Harry Potter in December.
So yeah. Mikey Brooks ranks higher than J.K. Rowling.
Let me explain. A few years ago, I was fortunate enough to read the first few chapters of Potions in the Pizza. I fell in love with it and I fell hard. It is so much fun, hilarious, and a perfect middle grade adventure. And I've been waiting to find out how it ends ever since.
I am so happy this book has finally found a home with Future House. Congratulations, Mikey!
But let's face it. My joy is entirely selfish. BECAUSE NOW I GET TO READ IT!
And guess what? You could read it too! Future House is offering ARCs in exchange for honest reviews -details at the bottom of the post. NOW EVERYBODY'S HAPPY!
About The W.H.O. Files: Potions in the Pizza
10-year-old twins Ethan and Emmy’s parents have never told their kids what they do for a living. Then just before Halloween, while their parents are away on an emergency business trip, Ethan, Emmy, and their best friend Jax discover a HUGE secret: could the twins’ parents actually be . . . witch hunters?
Meanwhile at school, a new team of glamorous lunch ladies arrives on the scene, serving meals that taste way too good to come from a school cafeteria. There’s only one logical explanation: they’re witches, and the meals they serve are spiked with a dangerous potion! Why have witches come to Roosevelt Elementary? Where have Ethan and Emmy’s parents gone? Can it be a mere coincidence that their parents left just as the witches arrived? Whether they’re ready or not, Ethan and Emmy have only one option if they want to save their school and find their parents: become witch hunters themselves.
