With a dash of Lemony Snicket, a dollop of the Addams Family, and a hearty dose of adventure, New York Times bestselling author Natalie Lloyd introduces a new series about seven strange and adventurous siblings who tackle problems together-even when their new neighbors try to tear them apart.Filled with mystery, humor, and adventure, the first book in this new trilogy is an unforgettable tale of adventure, family, and finding the courage to face any problem heart-first.When the Problim children's ramshackle bungalow in the Swampy Woods goes kaboom, the seven siblings-each born on a different day of the week-have to move into their grandpa's bizarre old mansion in Lost Cove. No problem! For the Problim children, every problem is a gift! But rumors about their family run rampant in the small town: tales of a bitter feud, a hidden treasure, and a certain kind of magic lingering in the halls of #7 Main Street. Their neighbors, the O'Pinions, will do anything to find the secrets lurking inside the Problim household-including sending the seven children to seven different houses on seven different continents!

Reviews

"Both text and illustrations offer a nod to Roald Dahl's quirky, juvenile heroes and equally quirky, nasty villains. The distinctive flavor comes both from Lloyd's witty but succinct word mastery and from her unflagging imagination." -- Kirkus Reviews "Natalie Lloyd has done it again! A story about family, hidden treasure, a wonderfully mysterious house, and finding your place even when you're frightened to try, The Problim Children is bursting at the seams with magic, heart, and humor. A sheer, riotous delight." -- Claire Legrand, author of Some Kind of Happiness PRAISE FOR A SNICKER OF MAGIC: "From every angle, Lloyd's first novel sparkles and radiates warmth ... a reassuring, homespun story about self-expression and the magic that resides in one's mind and heart." -- Publishers Weekly (starred review) "Whimsical and bewitching ... hang on for the ride!" -- New York Times Book Review "A delightful and inspiring debut ... As Felicity loves to say, `Yes ... yes ... yes!'" -- School Library Journal (starred review) "This tale offers all the earmarks of fine storytelling, including colorful, eccentric characters, an original, highly likable narrator and a mighty `spindiddly' plot." -- Kirkus Reviews (starred review) "In this spellbinding debut novel set in Tennessee, Felicity Juniper Pickle sees magic in the people around her, and her worldview is curiously contagious " -- Shelf Awareness "A bouquet of quirks, whimsy, sweetness, and magic." -- Kirkus Reviews
