Jaundice and Kale are back from their adventure on the high seas, and they are settling back into a quiet life in Dullsville, just the way they like it. The tea is tepid, the oatmeal is tasteless, and the socks are ripe for darning . . . until Aunt Shallot shows up and reveals herself to be anything but the dull relation they were expecting. Instead, she tells her nieces she is Magique, Queen of Magic, and she’s on her way to a big show and in need of two willing assistants. As Magique and the Bland sisters board the Uncanny Express, they meet a cast of mystifying characters. And when Magique goes missing, it’s up to Jaundice and Kale to solve the mystery—with the help of famous detective Hugo Fromage. An inventive story in the tradition of Agatha Christie’s Murder on the Orient Express, The Unintentional Adventures of the Bland Sisters: The Uncanny Express has all the whimsy and humor that readers who are looking for an anything-but-bland adventure will love.

I like Jaundice because she has like 100 different pockets.It is weird that Kale loves cleaning as a HOBBY!!!! I would recommend this to people who like twists in tales.

This is a fun adventure story involving the Bland sisters and lots of strangers on a train. It was exciting to read about Jaundice and Kim's adventures as they tried to solve the mystery of their missing Aunt. I would definitely recommend this book to others.
