Warren the 13 is an orphan and the last heir to the Warren Hotel. Unfortunately, his Uncle Rupert and new bride, Aunt Annaconda, are in charge of running the place until Warren reaches eighteen. Due to Uncle Rupert’s incompetence, the Warren Hotel is now but a shadow of its former glory and the staff was gravely reduced to a chef, a librarian, and Warren –hotel’s only bellhop, room servant, handyman, and all-around errand boy. For now, Warren is doing everything he can to keep the place together. 

I had the most delightful time reading this. Warren may not be the loveliest of kids, but he is most industrious and kind-hearted. I love joining Warren to go through his predicaments, yet still, keep his heart in the right place and remain hopeful at the end of each day. His love for his family and unquenchable desire to make them proud are inspiring to behold.

     So, I have nothing but good things to describe Warren and this book. It’s a story that kids will truly enjoy. It’s got all the fun, craziness, adventure, and mystery they will appreciate. Plus, the illustrations are all wonderful; meticulously done in red, black, and white, it will surely catch the kids’ attention.

WARREN THE 13th AND THE ALL-SEEING EYE will make a good Christmas gift, put it on your list!
