About The Book

Lo! A mad experience resumes!

Things have changed for Edgar and Ellen. With Augustus Nod back from the dead and the Knightleighs in disgrace, the good citizens of Nod's Limbs don't merely tolerate pranking, they embrace it. They've even made the troublesome twins local heroes. Great, right?

Well, maybe not. Edgar and Ellen could be losing their edge just when they need it most. The outcome of the first-ever Nod's Limbs Knightleigh-less mayoral election is in their hands...and perhaps of slightly greater importance, the future of the planet. Humanity's safety rests in the secret of the balm, which may have just fallen into the wrong hands. Is it the twins' old nemesis, The Mason? Or the mysterious Man in the Paper Bag Mask? Or someone even more frightening?

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.
