About The Book

A towering crisis interrupts the twins' usual mayhem: The mayor is about to build his monstrous Knightlorian Hotel right next door! But as they try to halt construction, Edgar and Ellen encounter a new foe -- an unknown prankster who's stealing their thunder (and their best schemes)! To stop the rash of copycat capers the twins must descend into the sewers, but what they discover there is stranger than anything they could have imagined. A mysterious journal, a secret laboratory, a villain's hideaway -- there's a lot more than sewage running beneath Nod's Limbs!

About The Author

Charles Ogden is an avid camper and fisherman. He collects insects and has traveled in pursuit of various specimens to the North Pole, the Souh Pole, and Poland. Mr. Ogden and his insect collection make their home in a cool, dry, preservation-friendly environment, far removed from prying eyes.

About The Illustrator

Rick Carton has been drawing longer than he's been walking. In his Chicago studio he has a cherished collection of every pencil ever worn down to a nub during his lengthy artistic career. He has never formally studed art; instead, the art community has diligently studied him. They are yet to release their findings.
