The Dead Gentleman

By: Matthew Cody

BOOK TALK

 

Welcome to the world of the Explorer’s Society.  A secret, determined group of scholars and explorers whose main goal is to search out those secret portals in the world which allow them to travel not only to worlds never seen by most, but to also travel to other times.  Not possible, you say?  Oh, but it is.  Tommy Learner, a common pickpocket in the 1900’s, stumbles upon this revelation quite by accident.  Now, being chased by the gruesome Dead Gentleman whose only goal is to take over the entire earth, Tommy travels forward in time through one of these secret portals and lands in Jezebel Lemon’s bedroom.  Before Jez knows what has happened, she gets caught up in Tommy’s adventure to get rid of the Dead Gentleman once and for all.  But it’s two kids against an army of dead.  What chance do they have?
