Read in September, 2009

I enjoyed this as much as the others in the series, Whales on Stilts and The Clue of the Linoleum Lederhosen, although I often wonder who likes these besides me. The adventures work for a juvie - to- teen audience, but the references to children's series fiction of other eras are so thick I always think these are really written for adults.

Jasper Dash, Boy Technonaut, and his friends Katie (of the Horror Hollow series) and Lily (of no book series at all) travel to the wilds of Delaware to rescue the monks of a lost monastery. There are constant jokes about wild lands and references to the fact that the real Delaware is not, really, controlled by a dictator or covered in mountains, etc.

Fun for the very strange.
