Sebastian is an eleven-year-old boy, and specializes in the maths and sciences. He lives a very ordinary life. That is, until he finds the pig in the tiny hat. This leads him to discovering a secret society, which leads him to finding a strange box with strange pictures of a strange group of explorers called the Filipendelous five, which leads him to finding a strange orphan girl who met a strange dinner guest, which leads them both on a very strange and altogether unusual adventure. Pick up this book and prepare to be sucked into a world of pigs in tiny hats, mysterious men, and plain wooden boxes.

I loved this book because they kind of switched perspectives between Eive (the orphan) and Sebastian. It also had some very good description. I also loved this book because it was very funny. This is the first book in a series and I can’t wait for the second one to come out! I would recommend this book to people who love adventure, funny mystery, and pigs in tiny hats. I would also recommend this book to the ages of 8 to 10, as it is kind of scary. I would give this book 200/10 stars.
