In serious need of a vacation after their last laser-beam-filled exploit, Lily, Jasper, and Katie have dashed off in their Gyroscopic Sky Suite for a restful sojourn at the Moose Tongue Lodge and Resort, a stunning spot filled with roaring fires, Cocoa Splurges, and many fine displays of taxidermy. But in a bizarre turn of events, a number of other children's book heroes also happen to be unwinding at the vintage mountain retreat, including the dim but well-built Manley Boys, the boy-crazy Cutesy Dell Twins, and Eddie Wax from the little-known classic Stumpy Rides to Glory. And then there are the adorable mystery-solving Hooper Quints, who, along with a wealthy heiress's priceless diamond necklace and numerous mounted animal heads, have suddenly gone missing. Meaningless coincidence? Or could it all be part of a nefarious plot involving duct tape, some Bavarian folk pants, and a slew of counterfeit dinner coupons? Tough to say, but one thing's for sure: Katie, Lily, and Jasper are the only swell youngsters around who can solve this spine-tingling mystery

"Tired of all the adventures that occupy her in Horror Hollow, Katie leaves for vacation with friends Lily and Jasper. Unfortunately, adventure follows her to the resort. Marc Cashman works hard to get across the zany humor of Anderson's pulp fiction for kids and succeeds, for the most part. Reading in a straightforward style, he doesn't provide much differentiation for the characters, with the exception of Jasper, whose proper speech identifies him as a child of the '50s. Even the story's narrator is presented in the same voice. Anderson is clearly appealing to elementary readers, most of whom will miss the parody but will enjoy the gross passages very much. W.L.S.
