Love Among the Walnuts: or, How I Saved My Family from Being Poisoned
Title: Love Among the Walnuts: or, How I Saved My Family from Being Poisoned
Author: Jean Ferris
Sandy Huntington-Ackerman didn’t expect life to be a free ride (even though his parents are multimillionaires). He certainly didn’t expect his two money-grubbing uncles to try to kill his family with a drugged birthday cake. Luckily for Sandy, the cake only sends his parents (and their pet chicken, Attila) into a coma. Along with a loyal butler and a wacky nurse from the asylum next door, Sandy is determined to bring the scoundrels to justice-if he’s not the next to go! This “rollicking screwball-comedy of a story” (The Horn Book) is just right for fans of Holes and The Westing Game.
