Two Twins, One Eyeball, No Surrender

Pet has long endured the trickery of its mischievous masters, Edgar and Ellen, but no more! The one-eyed creature has newfound strength, willpower, and a plan that could tear the twins apart. Meanwhile, the Knightleighs have invaded the twins' house, and Edgar and Ellen are worried — not until Ellen starts acting very oddly. She's tidying the house and taking baths. She's even accepted an invitation to a slumber party hosted by archrival Stephanie Knightleigh! Surely she's got a scheme up her (unusually clean) sleeve. Or has a hairy traitor managed to break up the devious duo for good?

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
With the publication of the fourth paper-over-board adventure of these evil and funny twins, Edgar & Ellen: Pet's Revenge by Charles Ogden, Aladdin reissues the first three, begun with Rare Beasts. Here, their one-eyed Pet rebels against its masters, and Ellen begins bathing and dusting the house. Could Pet be behind her eccentric behavior? Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature
This title is part of Ogden's "Edgar and Ellen" series featuring the ghoulish twins. With dark personalities that are peppered with mischievous trouble, Edgar and Ellen face the house redecorating plans of Judith Stainsworth Knightleigh, the wife of the mayor of the town Nod's Limbs and mother of Stephanie (who previously crossed battles with the twins). The beautification plans are not the messy style of the unkempt Edgar and Ellen whose parents are absent. As the striped pajama-clad twins begin to thwart Judith's clean-up plans, Ellen's personality changes from conniving and twisted to sweet and clean. Baffled and outraged with his sister's transformation, Edgar must seek the cause in order to regain his sibling. Meanwhile Pet, the hairy one-eyed creature, has plans of its own along with allies. Having tolerated the torment of Edgar and Ellen, Pet is plotting against the twins. The fast paced action and mysterious surprises move the story along in an Addams family-like style perhaps best described by the carving on the entrance to the twins' home, "schadenfreude," that one of the characters translates as "pleasure derived from the misery of others." 2006, Aladdin/Simon & Schuster, Ages 8 to 12.

Pet's Revenge is another really funny book in the Edgar & Ellen series. I like how Pet gets so tricky and how Edgar tries dealing with his sister's weird behavior. Pet was always one of my favorite characters and it was good to see him getting back at the twins for all their pranks. The pictures and rhymes are also very good, and a little bit creepy, which I like. I think that everyone should read these books and get a good laugh.
