Started out slightly dull but grew better. Cute, cute little thing. The drawings are scarce but fun in a gothic childish way. Think of Nightmare before Christmas kind of thing. I did laugh aloud a few times, humorous moments especially when things really got going. Easy to visualize what was going on from the writing style. The characters were fun and easy for adults and children alike to latch on to. The story was complex and complicated enough to be daring, original, and makes this fill up ...more

Seakan tak pernah merasa lelah ataupun puas, Edgar & Ellen kembali menyusun rencana yang tak kalah gelap dibanding semua kekacauan yang telah mereka timbulkan saat parade besar-besaran dilaksanakan di Nod’s Limbs beberapa waktu lalu. Mengandalkan Pemakaman Gadget, mereka selalu menemukan benda yang berguna yang dibutuhkan dalam merealisasikan ide-ide gila yang dituliskan Edgar dalam beberapa lembar kertas.

Rasa bersalah tak sekalipun muncul diwajah keduanya. Yang ada hanyalah senyum pertanda

This is the best one yet. There were more twists than I expected and I actually felt suspense, which so far as been something missing from the series to me.

Of course, it still bothers me when they torment Pet, so I'm thinking I'm going to have to go ahead and buy Pet's Revenge.

Also, I do really wish they would change out of those footie pajamas. Something about them tramping around in the sewers (albeit relatively clean ones) and not changing afterwords makes me itch a little. But I suppose

Kitabı nasıl kategorize edeceğimi bilemedim. Çocuk hikayesi mi yoksa fantastik, gençlere hitap eden bir yeni nesil basit bir hikaye mi anlamadım. Okurken akmadı ve beni kendine bağlayamadı.

This book is about a new woman copycat prankster named "The Mason" and she is copying Edgar and Ellen's plan to make the town, Nod's Limb miserable. My opinion in this book is that it is a great book because it is not that hard to understand the details and you can predict what will happen next. In addition, there are a lot of actions and good descriptions in the book that makes the book amazing. The genre for this book is fantasy fiction mixed with adventure. I like reading these types of books ...more

I read the book Edgar and Ellen Under Town by Charles Ogden. The book is about twins named Edgar and Ellen and they live in a ten story house alone because their parents left them and haven't returned back.

I loved this book because of all of the adventure they have with no parents. I also loved this book because I can relate to Edgar and Ellen for some reason probably because they are so adventurous and funny. I also I loved when they made a catapult and they never gave up until they exceeded.

The twisted twins find out that their plans in “Tourist Trap” did not work out quite as well as they hoped. The hotel is still planned to be built on the junk yard lot! Edgar & Ellen need to make new plans to stop the construction and quick, but someone is already doing that. Who could this mysterious person be and why are they stealing all of Edgar & Ellen’s plans and gadgets? The only clue is hidden below ground Under Town!

This is dark humor for children and it's funny...I laughed so much.

The mayor wants to take over Edgar & Ellen's home...condemn it and turn it into a Community Redevelopment project.

Scheming against the town people (as always) Edgar & Ellen find a way to save their home and discredit the Mayor.

Once again this one was fun and quirky as the last two...I so badly want to get the next 3.
D'oh!!! Gw gak suka anak kecil yang jahat. Tingkah E&E sudah termasuk dalam kategori "Jahat" daripada "Nakal".

If I had these books growing up, I would have read them every night. I love the twins and their little evil schemes that never really turn out the way they plan them! :)

youll never believ what they do.
Great story. The French toast fiasco did not stop the Mayor from his designs to build a new hotel. Edgar & Ellen soon find they have a new battle to fight and more mysyteries to solve.
Hmm... the plot is getting thicker.
I'm starting to feel sorry for the twins...

Another road trip listen. Cute, but not compelling enough for us to seek put the rest of the series.
