About the Author:

Avi is the author of the Newbery Medal-winning Crispin: The Cross of Lead and the Newbery Honor Books Nothing But the Truth and The True Confessions of Charlotte Doyle. He writes the beloved animal adventure series that includes Ragweed, Poppy, winner of the Boston Globe-Horn Book Award, Poppy and Rye, Ereth's Birthday, and Poppy's Return. His many other books include Don't You Know There's a War On? and The Mayor of Central Park an animal adventure set in Manhattan's most famous park.

From AudioFile:

Avi's mystery offers a Holmes-ian precursor, Auguste Dupin, and a young boy. Dupin is actually his creator,Edgar Allan Poe, and the tale has enough complexity to match Doyle and Poe's stories. The setting is early nineteenth-century Providence, Rhode Island, and Case's British accent could have helped enhance the period, but it doesn't. The narration is overwrought. His voice sounds constricted throughout, and his women's voices are much too shrill and breathy. R.F.W. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
