Horn Book Review

This fourth book in the series finds the letter-writing family facing the demise of their local post office due to the new "VEXT-mail" technology; meanwhile, Seymour is stuck in the hospital with the Phantom Flu. The Klises' intriguing narrative tactics continue as the story unfolds through letters, newspaper extracts, black-and-white illustrations, and instant messagelike VEXT-mail conversations.
