Summary

Come, step behind the curtain and enter a delightfully roguish world where mischief, mayhem and, perhaps, a dash of malice lurk… 
Let us introduce you to the remarkable Squickerwonkers - a band of colorful marionettes, and stars of the fabulous Squickershow - and to Selma of the Rin-Run Royals - a clever little girl with a naughtiness lurking just beneath the surface. One day Selma stumbles upon this troupe of puppet-scoundrels and endures a cheeky test of character that leads to an unpleasant lesson; one The Squickerwonkers are only too happy to oblige in orchestrating. 
In this, the prequel to the multi-book Squickerwonkers series, Selma’s curiosity and the Squickerwonkers’ vices set the stage for a wonderful cautionary tale that will captivate old and young alike.
