The Problim Children

While their parents are off on a weeks long exploration,  the seven Problim siblings’ ramshackle bungalow in the Swampy Woods goes kaboom and they must find themselves a new place to live.  Luckily, the oldest girl remembers that when he last visited, their grandfather gave her the deed to his house in the nearby town of Lost Cove, now sitting abandoned since his death seven years ago.  The children move into the house which is rumored to be the site of a hidden treasure, a treasure that the villainous neighbor, Desdemona O’Pinion, is determined to find. As the children work to solve the clues and riddles left by their grandfather to disclose the treasure, Desdemona and the town’s less than honest mayor scheme to evict the children who can’t confirm that they are the true owners of the house without evidence from their wayward parents.  This quirky first in a trilogy tale of seven children, one born on each day of the week, will appeal to fans of Roald Dahl and the Lemony Snicket books.
