In The Tell-Tale Start, Edgar and Allan Poe (great-great-great-great-grandnephews of the legendary Edgar Allan Poe) managed to outwit the nefarious Professor S. Pangborn Perry, who was (and is) determined to kill just one of them in order to prove a mad scientific theory. Now, the boys are in New Orleans, about to play the young Poe in a major feature film. But the role may cost them their lives, because someone else now wants them dead. But who? And can the twins – with the help of their co-stars, Em and Milly Dickinson, their ghostly forebear, and a pair of real ghosts – manage to outwit their new enemirs?

Once-Upon-A-Midnight-Eerie-Word-Search

Meet Edgar and Allan Poe — twelve-year-old identical twins, the great-great-great-great-grandnephews of Edgar Allan Poe. They look and act so much alike that they’re almost one mischievous, prank-playing boy in two bodies. When their beloved black cat, Roderick Usher, is kidnapped and transported to the Midwest, Edgar and Allan convince their guardians that it’s time for a road trip. Along the way, mayhem and mystery ensue, as well as deeper questions: What is the boys’ telepathic connection? Is Edgar Allan Poe himself reaching out to them from the Great Beyond? And why has a mad scientist been spying on the Poe family for years? For more, visit the–poes.com.
