Publisher Comments:

After their last laser-beam-filled adventure, Lily, Jasper, and Katie have flown off for a restful stay at a distant mountain lodge. What a coincidence when they find the lodge teeming with characters from other middle-grade series novels, including the dashing Manley Boys and the boy-crazy Cutesy Dell twins. And when the Hooper Quints go missing, it looks like their vacation is over. Could this all be part of a nefarious plot involving duct tape and Bavarian folk pants? Katie, Jasper, and Lily might be the only ones around who have the chops to solve this challenging mystery!
 
     Includes a teaser to the next book in the series, Jasper Dash and the Flame-Pits of Delaware.

Synopsis:

In this thrilling follow-up to "Whales on Stilts!," Lily, Jasper, and Katie happen upon a gathering of characters from other middle-grade series novels--and turn out to be the only ones around who have the chops to solve a challenging mystery. Illustrations.

Synopsis:

The second hilarious Thrilling Tales novel, now in paperback

Okay, but not as good as Anderson's previous in the series, Whales on Stilts!, which struck a better balance between parody and earnest absurdity. The Clue of the Linoleum Lederhosen has its own good jokes and affectionate jabs at genre fiction aimed at children, but doesn't pull it off as well. The authorial narrator is more talkative here, which is one of the up sides of this volume.
