Description-

  • "Magnificent."—Kirkus Reviews, STARRED Review

    Story Thieves meets Escape from Mr. Lemoncello's Library in this wacky, hilarious, and fast-paced middle-grade series starter, with the perfect combination of magic, imagination, and adventure.

    Javi Santiago is trying his best not to fail sixth grade. So, when the annual "invite any three people to dinner" homework assignment rolls around, Javi enlists his best friend, Wiki, and his sister, Brady, to help him knock it out of the park.

    But the dinner party is a lot more than they bargained for. The family's mysterious antique table actually brings the historical guests to the meal...and Blackbeard the Pirate is turning out to be the worst guest of all time.

    Before they can say "avast, ye maties," Blackbeard escapes, determined to summon his bloodthirsty pirate crew. And as Javi, Wiki, and Brady try to figure out how to get Blackbeard back into his own time, they might have to invite some even zanier figures to set things right again...

    "A magical table that pulls in famous people from history and fiction? Is this the greatest idea for a book ever? Yes. Yes it is. Come join the best dinner party in history (and books), full of pirates, sandwiches and history's greatest figures!"—James Riley, New York Times bestselling author of The Story Thieves series

  • Publisher's Weekly

    May 24, 2021
    A notorious historical villain overstays his welcome after three Maryland students inadvertently summon him to a dinner party in this engaging fantasy series opener. Every year at Finistere, “a full-on, spires-and-everything medieval castle turned into a school,” students must complete the same dinner party assignment: “If you could invite any three people, living or dead, who would you invite?” This year, 12-year-old Javi Santiago, who is Puerto Rican and an aspiring chef, isn’t sure whom to include, so he recruits his bookish best friend Will “Wiki” Green to help choose the perfect guests. But when Javi, his younger sister Brady, and Wiki accidentally wield a magic table’s summoning powers and let a cartoonishly rendered pirate Blackbeard loose in their world, they must race to send him back before he can enact his evil plans. Confident third grader Brady (“Now find yourself another Pirate Queen, ya scurvy dog!”) steals scenes—and Blackbeard’s respect. Great for fans of Mr. Lemoncello’s Library, debut author Piñeiro’s writing offers plenty of humor, as well as clever historical and literary Easter eggs for readers to puzzle out. Includes a character guide. Ages 8–12. Agent: Elana Roth Parker, Laura Dail Literary.
