If You're Reading This, It's Too Late
Dangerous secrets lie between the pages of this book.
OK, I warned you. But if you think I’ll give anything away, or tell you that this is the sequel to my first literary endeavor, The Name of This Book is Secret, you’re wrong.
I’m not going to remind you of how we last left our heroes, Cass and Max-Ernest, as they awaited intiation into the mysterious Terces Society, or the ongoing fight against the evil Dr. L and Ms. Mauvais. I certainly won’t be telling you about how the kids stumble upon the Museum of Magic, where they finally meet the amazing Pietro!
Oh, blast! I’ve done it again. Well, at least I didn’t tell you about the missing Sound Prism, the nefarious Lord Pharaoh, or the mysterious creature born in a bottle over 500 years ago, the key to the biggest secret of all.
I really can’t help myself, now can I? Let’s face it – if you’re reading this, it’s too late.
Name of This Book Is Secret
Read the series that’s sold more than 2 million copies–if you dare!
Warning: this description has not been authorized by Pseudonymous Bosch. As much as he’d love to sing the praises of his book (he is very vain), he wouldn’t want you to hear about his brave 11-year old heroes, Cass and Max-Ernest. Or about how a mysterious box of vials, the Symphony of Smells, sends them on the trail of a magician who has vanished under strange (and stinky) circumstances. And he certainly wouldn’t want you to know about the hair-raising adventures that follow and the nefarious villains they face. You see, not only is the name of this book secret, the story inside is, too. For it concerns a secret. A Big Secret.
This Book Is Not Good for You
Between the pages of this book lies the secret to the best-tasting chocolate in all the world. I promise, your taste buds will tingle. Your palette will sing! Oh no, have I accidentally tempted you to read this book? I will warn you, however, the most delicious things are never good for you…and this story is particularly scrumptious!
In this tooth-rotting adventure, Cass’s mom has been kidnapped by the evil dessert chef and chocolatier, Señor Hugo! The ransom…the legendary tuning fork. Can Cass and Max-Ernest find the magical instrument before it’s too late? Will they discover the evil secret ingredient to Señor Hugo’s chocolate success?
If you’re tempted, take a taste, but just remember…this book is not good for you.
This Isn't What It Looks Like
Cass may be in grave danger. She’s eaten the dreaded Time Travel Chocolate–and you know what that means. I won’t even begin to tell you what trouble this delicacy has caused in the past. If only Cass could leave the past behind! But it appears she is literally stuck in it.
Meanwhile, Max-Ernest is worried for his best friend. Can our expert hypochondriac diagnose Cass’s condition before it’s too late? And will he have what it takes to save the survivalist?
For Max-Ernest, it’s a race against time; for Cass, a race through it. For the rest of you, well, it’s a race to find out what happens next, of course. But proceed with caution, and be sure to read carefully because…this isn’t what it looks like.

You Have to Stop This
I always feared this day would come. A secret is meant to stay secret, after all. And now we’ve come to this: the fifth and final (I swear!) book in my saga of secrets.
