Reviewed by Theresa: 

Meet the Iremongers a very large and quirky, to say the least, family who live in a strange pieced together dilapidated mansion in the middle of a vast pile of junk near London, England. When a new Iremonger is born they are given what they call, a birth object that represents them and shapes who they become. One of the narrators, Clod Iremonger, aged 15, has a bath plug for a birth object. Some of the others have items that are even stranger. Clod though has the ability to hear these items speaking and when they start whispering more loudly and start disappearing, he teams up with Lucy, one of the servants, to solve the mystery.

If you enjoyed Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events, then this new series is a good match for you.   Heap House by Edward Carey is best for readers in grades 6-8.
