The Man Who Was Poe
by Avi

     Edmund and Sis's aunty promised to only be out for a couple of minutes; but, instead, she stayed gone for days.  The children began to starve.  Sis's stomach gets so empty that Edmund steps out to get something for them to eat.  When he gets back, Sis is gone.  A fine man by the name of Auguste Dupin agrees to help him find his sister.  Will they find her?  Read The Man Who Was Poe, coming July 2013.
     I thought everything in this book was wonderful.  Every part intrigued me.  The Poe connections were great.  I loved how Avi presented Edgar's character--brilliant.
