In a new twist on an old favorite, featuring 12-year-olds Edgar and Allen Poe, McAlpine gives us an entertaining and original work of YA fiction. Narrator Arte Johnson delivers a splendid reading that whisks listeners—both young and old—away to a world in which the mischievous twin descendants of the famous literary pioneer find themselves on the run from some very secretive operatives. Johnson’s delivery is stellar and his character interpretations colorful and endlessly creative. The narrator’s ability to grab listeners and lure them into this fantasy is a true treat, and his extensive vocal pallet is something to behold. Endlessly fun and ultimately very satisfying on every level, this recording is a must-have for both diehard Poe fans and those just discovering his work. Ages 8-12. A Viking hardcover. (Jan.)
