The Shrunken Head / Lauren Oliver and H.C. Chester

Orphans Thomas, Pippa, Sam and Max are not just ordinary children. They are four of the most extraordinary children in the world, with abilities far beyond imaginable, and growing up in Dumfrey’s Dime Museum of Freaks, Oddities, and Wonders. Things aren’t going so well for the museum until Mr. Dumfrey finds an Amazonian shrunken head to bring into the museum’s collection and show. Unfortunately, the shrunken head is stolen after making headlines and bringing some much needed¬†publicity to the museum. The orphans are determined to find it, but not before uncovering a series of murders and a dark secret about their pasts. This is the first book in the Curiosity House series.
