Meet Edgar and Allan Poe — 12-year-old identical twins, the great-great-great-great-grandnephews of Edgar Allan Poe. With a mix of literary humor, mystery, a little quantum physics, and fun extras, this series opener is a perfect choice for smart, funny tweens who love the Time Warp Trio, Roald Dahl, and Lemony Snicket. Illustrations. In the first book from the Misadventures of Edgar & Allan Poe series, twins Edgar and Allan find themselves in danger after they are expelled from school and someone kidnaps their cat. Perhaps the answers lie in an odd amusement park.
