Meet Edgar and Allan Poe - 12-year-old identical twins, the great-great-great-great-grandnephews of Edgar Allan Poe. They look and act so much alike that they're almost one mischievous, prank-playing boy in two bodies.
When their beloved black cat, Roderick Usher, is kidnapped and transported to the Midwest, Edgar and Allan convince their guardians that it's time for a road trip. Along the way, mayhem and mystery ensue, as well as deeper questions: What is the boys' telepathic connection? Is Edgar Allan Poe himself reaching out to them from the Great Beyond? And why has a mad scientist been spying on the Poe family for years?
With a mix of literary humor, mystery, and a little quantum physics, this series opener is a perfect choice for smart, funny tweens who love the Time Warp Trio, Roald Dahl, and Lemony Snicket.

Poe Fans are in for a Treat
Not sure as listening is always fun but as I would rate this a good book for adolescent readers then for them, reading a book might be best.
Love in injection of the real Poe into the plot and the ways he tried to communicate with the twins.
I liked them all, Arte Johnson did a fine job of telling a tale!
I could have and for long car rides it is perfect as the plot is not so complex that it distracts us from driving but is entertaining enough to make the long hours of driving much more enjoyable
