Misadventures of Edgar and Allan Poe: Once Upon a Midnight Eerie (YA)
Book #26 Read in 2014
The Misadventures of Edgar and Allan Poe: Once Upon a Midnight Eerie by Gordon McAlpine (YA)
This is the second book in a cute series featuring the great great great great grandnephews of author Edgar Allan Poe. The twin boys are rather unique in that they can see into each other's brains and read each other's thoughts. This makes them very interesting to an evil, mad scientist, whom they defeated in the first book. In this book, the boys are playing their ancestor in a movie and are confronted by the mad scientist's daughter and mother. They are assisted by relatives of Emily Dickinson. Of course, their highly intelligent cat Roderick helps them as well.
These books are cute, quick reads. They have a decent mystery plot, humor and lots of literary references. I enjoy them.
I received this book in exchange for a review through the Amazon Vine review program.
