Winner of Italys 2006 Premio Andersen Award: A young writers fantasy world becomes dangerously entangled with reality
Eleven-year-old Archie and his six-year-old brother, Oggie, are constantly going back and forth between their mothers home and the apartment that their father shares with his girlfriend. To distract Oggie from the turbulence of endlessly bouncing from "Saturn" to "Jupiter" and back again, Archie invents a fantastic story about the Mysterious Mole People. When Oggies wallet is stolen by kids from a local gang, Archie tries to retrieve it and becomes increasingly ensnared in the gangs dangerous activities. Even worse, he soon finds that his fictitious mole story is merging with the darkness of real life in a very frightening way.
Janet Taylor Lisle (b. 1947) is an author of childrens fiction. After growing up in Connecticut, Lisle graduated from Smith College and spent a year working for the volunteer group VISTA (Volunteers in Service to America) before becoming a journalist. She found that she loved writing human interest and "slice of life" stories, and honed the skills for observation and dialogue that would later serve her in her fiction.
"Lovably engaging main characters, humorous narration, and a slightly screwball plot." Kirkus Reviews
"Mixing the slightly unbelievable with, what is, essentially, a survival story, seems workable in Lisles experienced hands." Booklist
"[A] fast-paced, adventure-filled title." School Library Journal
