Edgar, Allan, and Poe and the Tell-tale BeetsBook - 2009
Mother has one unbreakable rule: "No dessert until you finish your dinner." But how can Edgar, Allan, and Poe possibly clear their plates when there are Brussels sprouts to be swallowed, liver to be chewed and, worst of all, beets to be bitten? There must be a way to get rid of dinner without having to gobble up this foul food. Perhaps the loose floorboard under Poe's chair is the answer! This clever twist on Edgar Allan Poe's The Beating of the Tell-Tale Heart will resonate with anyone who has ever wished that certain foods could just disappear.
