Warning: this description has not been authorized by Pseudonymous Bosch. As much as he'd love to sing the praises of his book (he is very vain), he wouldn't want you to hear about his brave 11-year old heroes, Cass and Max-Ernest. Or about how a mysterious box of vials, the Symphony of Smells, sends them on the trail of a magician who has vanished under strange (and stinky) circumstances.

You see, not only is the name of this book secret, the story inside is, too. For it concerns a secret. A Big Secret.

Sì, ok, ho un debole per tutto ciò che mi ricorda Harry Bosch, Connelly anne...
Auf dieses Hörbuch bin ich in der Kinderbuchabteilung meiner Bücherei aufmerksam geworden und zwar durch den ausgefallenen Titel: Der Name dieses Buches ist ein Geheimnis. Das Geheimnis wollte ich natürlich ergründen und so wanderte das Hörbuch in meinen Bibliothekskorb. :D Aber worum geht es denn...
“WARNING:DO NOT READ BEYOND THIS PAGE!” Great start to a book, isn't it? Very [a:Lemony Snicket|36746|Lemony Snicket|http://d.gr-assets.com/authors/1199734355p2/36746.jpg]. And that is why I picked it up, because I loved A Series of Unfortunate Events and wanted something similar. Unfortunately, Pse...
