Milo Speck: Accidental Agent by Linda Urban
When Milo finds a mystery sock in the laundry, he goes to investigate the dryer to see if he can find its mate. But the dryer is a magical portal to a land of ogres. Milo is immediately in danger of being a tea time snack, but uses his Chicken Dance skills to entertain a large and finicky ogre baby in order to escape that fate. More close encounters ensue as Milo searches for a way home. Along the way Milo discovers that his parents are magical secret agents and he might need to rescue his father and his boss from being squashed by ogres on national ogre tv. This is a delightful tale reminiscent of Roald Dahl with a wonderful mix of fantasy, humor, and heart. A must read!
