Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Format: Paperback
Combine Doyle's unparalleled storytelling with a little guidance from the spirit world and the result is this ingenious literary concoction second in sequence only. In the forward readers are greeted with a letter from the author, which explains the origin of the story and includes a special note of thanks to his ghostly housemate, thus setting the stage for a magical reading experience.

Audrey and Garrett Font had been certain this would be the most boring summer ever--but that was before their week long Lighthouse adventure. Now, they were just as excited as dear ol' grandpa to explore the beautiful, colonial-style house tucked into the base of a towering waterfall. Following Great Grandpa, Leo Font's drawings, the trio make their way into the vast forests of Northern California in search of Fakersville. But after sixty years, Grandpa's memories of this picturesque area seem to be the only thing left of this once vibrant mining town. How could they find the house grandpa was so anxious to explore if they couldn't even find the town?
The first, of the new characters to be introduced is the cantankerous, president of the Inventor's Club, Mr. Howard August. Listening to his stories the Font's learn a great deal about the history of Fakersville, from thriving quartz mining area to a deserted ghost town of sorts, where curiosity seekers simply disappear.
Following a series of clues and solving puzzles, with the assistance of a new friend, the Font's begin to uncover the towns long buried secrets. But is it too late? Can they rescue their beloved grandpa and prevent the Mayor from writing another chapter in the mysterious story of Fakersville.

Format: Paperback
Edgar Font's second adventure (The Fakersville Power Station) is a wonderful book for summer, fall, winter and spring. I purchased it for my daughter just before school started and she has already turned in a book report on it (B+ Yeah!) and now she can't wait for number 3. I highly recommend this and the first Edgar Font book to all mothers, teachers and kids. Especially with Halloween and Christmas coming up.

I haven't read the book, but my son is absolutely in love with Edgar Font. He told me this morning he can't wait for another one to come out. Once he started reading the first one, he told me all about it. Anything that gets him excited to read is 5 stars in my book!
