It all started with her Uncle's upcoming Chivalry and Romance and Loads of Frippery and Finery party... Madrigal Pierce's greedy brother Johann has returned to The Pierce School For Young People. He owns half the mansion and plans to sell it. Fortunately, Ophelia has been reading The Three Musketeers, and Linus, Ophelia, and Walter decide D'Artagnan could rescue the school from his wily ways and keep their best friend Walter from going back to England. Their plan goes horribly awry---again---when the evil Lady DeWinter appears instead. Can D'Artagnan and the Three Musketeers save the day? Or is the school and the trio's friendship doomed! A fantasy steeped in classic literature...narrator Bartholomew Inkster brings Lemony Snicket--like irony to frame the story....References to literature throughout the narrative make this a feast for middlegrade book lovers. Kids who like quirky adventure stories with idiosyncratic characters will enjoy a simpler kind of fun. -- Publishers Weekly
