Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Come follow this trail of riddles lined with popcorn and drawn in invisible ink!

Pants that walk by themselves...Secret messages that pop up in the toaster...A mysterious factory that plants already-popped corn and makes invisible ink...or is it inc?

What is going on in South Wiggot? It all started when Mr. Keen arrived in the dusty little farm town — in a wooden crate. Strange things have been happening ever since, and Bryan Zilcher is determined to find out why, before things can go from strange to sinister.

This compelling adventure is like nothing else you've ever read. Part Saturday morning cartoon, part secret agent mystery — and all zany fun!

Review:

"The delicate balance between humor and pure absurdity generally works....[B]ut the mystery surrounding the cause of such events should keep readers involved." School Library Journal

Review:

"This utterly silly but entertaining story clearly has a lot of madcap influences, including old Saturday morning cartoons, Roald Dahl, and the Addams Family. Readers who enjoy oddball characters and off-the-wall mysteries should find this amusing." Booklist
