Overview

Kenneth Forbes (the heir of Aunt Jane's estate) needs help. He is trying to make conditions better for local farmers so decides to go into politics. He is running against a local politician Erastus Hopkins but having issues and looking like a bumbling fool in his campaign. In swoops Uncle John and the Nieces to the rescue. This book can be especially humorous at times because it shows how similar politics still are today. The Democrat and Republican parties are both featured here (I wont’ give away which the author is rooting for but it will become obvious) and they were not any friendlier back in the day (imagine that!). The nieces also solve a mystery involving a missing girl, stolen ring, and a forged check.

Meet the Author

Lyman Frank Baum. Baum was an American author of children's books, best known for writing The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. He wrote thirteen novel sequels, nine other fantasy novels, and a host of other works (55 novels in total, plus four "lost" novels), 82 short stories, over 200 poems, an unknown number of scripts, and many miscellaneous writings), and made numerous attempts to bring his works to the stage and screen. His works predicted such century-later commonplaces as television, laptop computers (The Master Key), robots (Ozma of Oz) wireless telephones (Tik-Tok of Oz), women in high risk, and action-heavy occupations (Mary Louise in the Country).
