Bound To Stay Bound
When they finally arrive, they stumble upon a nefarious plot by a mad scientist - a plot that includes killing one of them - and they must use their intelligence and quick wit to catch the bad guy and foil his plans. Everything about this book is great. I thoroughly enjoyed all the literary references and witty banter. I loved that the boys were so smart and could always cause trouble, but it was always in good humor or to teach someone a lesson.
No one ever got hurt. I think my favorite scenes were those of Edgar Allan Poe himself in the spirit world, dealing with his annoying boss. Just wait until you find out who he is! I think any kids aged would love this especially boys , and their literary-loving parents would too. Excellent story line.
My 3rd grader loved it and the story was entertaining enough for me to enjoy him reading to me. We will definitely get others in this series.
I bought this for my daughter. She's 10 and an avid reader. She loves Edgar Allen Poe and has read quite a bit of his works.

To the delight of their school friends, the twins are also masterful pranksters who make classes exciting and keep would-be bullies in check.

Samson's Enchanted Attic series will enjoy this, though it's less clever in its twists and literary references. Two twins so nearly interchangeable that they even share each other's thoughts nearly fall victim to a mad scientist in this mildly farcical series kickoff.
