The Tell-Tale Start is the first book in the middle-grade trilogy, The Misadventures of Edgar and Allan Poe. Edgar and Allan Poe are identical, inside and out, and their fiendish pranks are legendary. But someone got rid of their parents…and that same someone is out to get them. Are the Poe twins quick and clever enough to outwit the shadowy organization known as the P.O.E.S.? And is that their famous ancestor, Edgar Allan Poe, trying to help them from the Great Beyond?
