The Mysterious Case of Doctor Octavius Plum's Incredible Ever After Machine

 

The Mysterious Case of Doctor Octavius Plum's Incredible Ever After Machine  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

When British children, Jennifer and Timothy Goodhew visit their grandfather on the isle of St. Mary's over Christmas, they are surprised to find him missing. In his place they find a wily, old pirate captain, who has taken control of their grandfather's manor and its servants.

 

The captain puts the children to work—Timothy in the tumbledown graveyard at the end of the garden, and Jennifer within the manor itself. Naturally, the children are concerned about their missing grandfather and begin to investigate his disappearance.

 

In the course of their investigations, they discover that the garden surrounding the manor has become wildly overgrown. Furthermore, they are told that entrance to their grandfather's laboratory is strictly forbidden.

 

Undaunted, the children continue their investigations, and in so doing, discover a remarkable secret and a diabolical plot that will change their lives forever.

 

This novel will, in turn, warm your heart and send chills down your spine. It leads the reader on an unforgettable journey through an eerie manor, an overgrown garden, a tumbledown graveyard, and to a gripping conclusion. An adventure story and a mystery, it is a page-turner through and through—one that is enjoyed by children (ages 9 and up) and adults alike.

 I went and read the sample..........and immediately bought the book.  Now all I need is the fireplace and hot cocoa. I can not wait to get into the rest of the story tonight, I think it is going to be a very late reading night.

Re: The Mysterious Case of Doctor Octavius Plum's Incredible Ever After Machine

Throughly enjoyed, what an adventure. If you read out loud to your children this book is tailor made for that. My granddaughter is only 5 months old but I will be saving this to read for her. Hopefully with many more books from the author also by then. 

 

Loved the stove!!
