Take one part Edgar Allen Poe, one part haunted house tale, one part new-kid-in-town story and a soupçon of Patrick Ness’ A Monster Calls, and what you get is Ronald Kidd’s totally original middle-grade page-turner.

loved this edge of your seat book. For anyone who loves Edgar Allen Poe this is a must read. Since there is not much known on Poe's death, the author, Kidd, wrote a story about, "what if, this is how he died."

I must say I was underwhelmed by this book. Though it was a quick read and engaging at first, the whole evil Edgar Allan Poe premise was ridiculous and nonsensical. About 75% of the way through, I couldn't wait for it to be over. I expected better from Robald Kidd--I wouldn't recommend this book...

Definitely creepier than I thought it would be, but I'd recommend this one.

I did not like evil Edgar, but I can see that middle schoolers would probably enjoy it.

Really enjoyed this one, but with my not-uncommon caveat: what happened with the cat was really, really unnecessary. I am totally going to go re-read some of Poe's stories, though.
