August ventures out of the dilapidated family home to rescue his favorite snacks when they are dropped in the front yard by the grocery delivery service. And that is when things go sideways. He meets other kids, is followed home by a zombie, and even learns that he has other relatives besides Hydrangea. But is a boy who has never interacted with anyone but his eccentric aunt ready to deal with snobs, unscrupulous adults, and bullying children? Oh...and the small problem of the zombie.
Perfect for fans of Lemony Snicket and Tim Burton, this story has oddball humor, offbeat characters, and perplexing situations.
