Synopsis:

Fire ants. Fraud. Footie pajamas.

Twins Edgar and Ellen live alone — their parents disappeared years ago, and who can blame them? — in the quaint, little town of Nod's Limbs, in a grim, gray house overlooking the cemetery and the junkyard. They spend their days avoiding Heimertz, the mysterious accordion-playing caretaker; pestering Pet, a hairy, one-eyed creature of indeterminate species and gender; and wreaking havoc on the hapless citizens of Nod's Limbs.

But wreaking havoc can incur expenses, so the twins come up with a unique fund-raising scheme: They'll nab the pets of Nod's Limbs and transform them into exotic animals they can sell for big bucks. Not a bad plan, if one of the purloined pets wasn't a lethargic python with a raging appetite....

Synopsis:

Nod's Limbs is a picturesque town with a bad side--the home of scheming siblings Edgar and Ellen, villains who are the heroes of this new series. Illustrations.

Rare Beasts is a great book for ages 8-12. I bought the set Triple Threat for my younger brother, which includes the first three Edgar & Ellen books (Rare Beasts, Tourist Trap, and Under Town) and he LOVED them. They feature two prank-loving twins and their mysterious pet, a one-eyed hairball named only Pet. The chapters are short and the illustrations every few pages make this a great book for reluctant readers as well. The story itself is fun and light-hearted with the twins playing pranks on their neighbors, but always getting what comes to them in the end. I recommend this book and its following series very highly.
