Story Thieves meets Escape from Mr. Lemoncello's Library in this action-packed new series starter filled with adventure, bloodthirsty pirates, about the worst dinner guest of all time.

Javi Santiago is just a sandwich-obsessed Puerto Rican trying to host the ultimate dinner party and not fail sixth grade. When the annual "Any Three People to Dinner" homework assignment rolls around, Javi needs helps, so he pulls his best friend Wiki and his kid sister Brady into the effort. Only none of them predicted that the family's mysterious antique table would *actually* bring their storied guests to the meal. And who did they invite? Kid Mozart, the Earl of Sandwich, and...Blackbeard the Pirate. Whoops.

Before they can say "avast, ye maties," Blackbeard escapes and Javi's world does an awkward somersault. As the trio tries to avoid the bloodthirsty pirate, a few of their teachers come to their aid--teachers who are suspiciously out of place. But there's no time to think--Blackbeard is intent on summoning his pirate crew, so Javi may have to invite some even zanier figures to set things right again.
