Mildew and Sponge attend the prestigious boarding school within Maudlin Towers, which is as boring as it is grotesque. But when the prized School Spoon goes missing, Mildew decides to put his detecting skills to the test, with Sponge close behind. Vikings, suspicious school masters, a ghost in the tower, and a series of secrets await them as they brave the mysterious and the unknown.
Zinging dialogue and dry humor spin a hilarious mystery/adventure story where the clues are purposefully none-too-subtle but the twists and unbelievable turns keep you guessing at what will happen next. Mildew and Sponge face down werewolves, time travel, ghosts, their terrifying headmaster, and much more before the story reaches its conclusion.
Retaining oldschool charm that matches the quaint boarding school setting, Curse of the Werewolf Boy sports an impressive vocabulary and subtle humor that will appeal to fans of Terry Pratchett or Neil Gaiman’s Fortunately, the Milk.
