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
Considering their generally antisocial behavior, Edgar and Ellen, the terrors of the town of Nod's Limbs, should be unsympathetic characters. They sneak shredded tire bits into the chocolate chip pie at Buffy's Muffins; they torment Pet, their shaggy, one-eyed animal; they plan to close the local school by bricking up the door; and they are determined to stop the mayor from building a new hotel. But, of course, they are not unsympathetic at all. Their creative mischief is aimed against unreasonable authorities who want the town to be boringly perfect. They find materials and inspiration in the Gadget Graveyard, the junkyard beside their house—and the intended location of the new hotel. The construction will not only destroy the junkyard. It will also uproot and kill Berenice, the carnivorous plant Ellen has tended from a seedling. In their quest to stop the hotel and to find the mason—the thief who took their bricks and mortar and bricked off a bridge instead of the school—the twins search the sewers under the town and find a dusty laboratory belonging to their caretaker, Heimertz. Unfortunately, he is not the mason. That title belongs to Eugenia Smithy, who is furious at the mayor for giving the hotel construction project to an outside firm instead of her family's local business. By the end of this book, though the outsiders have been routed, Eugenia is on her way to building the hotel. The twins are angry and frustrated, but a green shoot from a seed of the carnivorous Berenice is poking through the dirt and the promise of more adventures is in the air. This book is part of the "Edgar and Ellen" series. 2004, Aladdin/Simon & Schuster Children's Publishing Division, Ages9 to 12.
