There's no one under the sun like Tom Sawyer! Preparations are underway for the monthly party, 'Bare Feet and a Straw Hat Never Hurt anybody, an evening with Mark Twain.' The gang agrees that Tom Sawyer should be brought into the Real World. He'd be a refreshing change after Captain Ahab and Lady D' Winter---much easier to handle. However, upon arrival, Tom immediately picks a fight with Walter, falls in love with Ophelia, and continuously attempts to one-up Linus. When Ophelia is kidnapped, Tom is determined to save her, just like he did with Becky Thatcher. But the clock is ticking... Praise for the series: 'A fantasy steeped in classic literature...narrator Bartholomew Inkster brings Lemony Snicket--like irony to frame the story....References to literature throughout the narrative make this a feast for middle-grade book lovers. Kids who like quirky adventure stories with idiosyncratic characters will enjoy a simpler kind of fun.' -- Publishers Weekly Praise for Saving Moby Dick ...Generously infused with animating elements of mystery, romance and comedy---plus a particularly lively and diverse supporting cast of grown-ups. -Kirkus

This Character Could Be One Whale of a Problem In Saving Moby Dick, Linus, Ophelia, and their friend Walter think they can control the powers of the Enchanted Attic, and they plan to bring Captain Ahab from Book World into Real World---on their own terms. But even the best-laid plans go awry sometimes, and their adventures take a wild turn. Captain Ahab is far crazier than they realized, and bookstores aren't really the best places to find whales, white or otherwise.

A hidden attic. A classic story. A very unexpected twist. Twin twelve-year-old bookworms Ophelia and Linus Easterday discover a hidden attic that once belonged to a mad scientist. While relaxing in the attic and enjoying her latest book, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, Ophelia dozes off, and within moments finds herself facing a fully alive and completely bewildered Quasimodo. Ophelia and Linus team up with a clever neighbor, a hippy priest, and a college custodian, learning Quasimodo's story while searching for some way to get him back home---if he can survive long enough in the modern world.
