summary Figgs Phantoms 108 characters Figgs Phantoms L the attention her eccentric relatives bring to her in town there is one Figg family member she likes her Uncle Florence the book dealer But Uncle Florence keeps hinting that he's going to find. To say that I really like Ellen Raskin s The Westing Game is an understatement I adore that book So when I got copies of two other Raskin books The Mysterious Disappearance of Leon I Mean Noel and Figgs and Phantoms in a giveaway I had great expectationsand while these other books exhibit her signature style and illustrations they are not in the same leagueWhile she lives in an eccentric world Mona daughter of Sister Figg Newton and Newton Newt Newton still deals with preadolescent difficulties She is embarrassed and often annoyed by her zany parents She feels that the only person who understands her is her uncle Florence FiggUncle Florence hints that he is soon to leave this world but Mona doesn t want him to leave her with a tap dancer for a mother and an incompetent used car dealer for a father The Figgs descend from circus performers and have their own personal heaven they call Capri Mona finds her way there to search for her beloved uncle and readers can decide whether Mona is dreaming or if her spirit is actually in Capri when she passes outEach writer creates a world and Raskin creates peculiar ones with lots of clever wordplay where loving families are made up of eccentric characters some related and some not Children trying to figure themselves out in these books deal with sometimes immature adults another hallmark of children s literature While there were a few slightly dated andor not politically correct notions floating through The Westing Game Raskin s earlier books exhibit even of these themes And at times the uirkiness and whimsy is a bit muchRead of my review on my booksploitation blog
