A book about an orphanage.  You are probably expecting cruel staff and children who are trying to find a way out.  But you will be surprised to find that this orphanage is run by kind, caring people.   The headmaster is Oddfellow Bluebeard and he is willing to take in anyone in need.  Not only children but a hedgehog and a family of bears.  Instead of math and reading, the students learn fairytales and cryptozoology.  The story begins with the arrival of Delia, a young orphan.
