Edgar and Allen are the great-great-great-great grand nephews of Edgar Allen Poe and have a interesting connection with him from the "Great Beyond" or as some people call the after-world. Edgar and Allen are completely identical twins and almost share the same brain, which is why they are  part of an experiment that they have no clue about until the middle of the book. The twin's parents died during a rocket science experiment gone wrong and their parents are still floating in space meanwhile, Edgar and Allen are being taken care of by their aunt and uncle. Their cat Roderick Usher goes missing and the twins are desperate to find him.  A "secret professor" is hiding out in an amusement park (if you even want to call it that) called, Authentic Dorothy Gale Farm and OZitorium in Kansas. On the way Edgar and Allen have some fun with their brains. Edgar and Allen's parents died during a rocket science experiment gone wrong and are still floating up in space, meanwhile Edgar and Allen are being taken care of by their aunt and uncle. Edgar Allen Poe is sending them messages from "The Great Beyond" but each poster and fortune Edgar and Allen get is misspelled and they must put their brains together to find the typo, and figure out the mystery.

 

This book had lots of suspicion building up and is a quick two hour read, but I promise those two hours of your time will be worth it. Even though a two hour read might seem way to easy for you, I would still recommend this book for lots of kids over seven or eight  because it can get very shocking. I would also suggest this book  for people who love mystery and suspicion. I was amazed at how well Gordon McAlpine really incorporated Edgar Allen Poe and his stories into the book. Each chapter also has a letter at the end stating something that the Poe twins don't know. There's almost a mystery building up in each chapter!
