Moss Farm, or the Mysterious Missives of the Moosepath League!
Under the wise and jovial leadership of their chairman Mister Tobias Walton and the shrewd and gallant Sundry Moss, this 19th century gentlemen’s club from Portland, Maine has foiled pirates and kidnappers, joined a hobo army to save a burning village, bumped into the supernatural, and successfully treated a depressed pig!
Return, now, to the early days of the club as (without benefit of their leader and his aide-de-camp) it becomes the self-imposed duty of Ephram, Eagleton, and Thump to deliver a letter to Walter! It is a mission of surprising complication and befuddlement, made no less so by Mrs. Actonia Mint, whose best friends are invisible to the world and whose family (the mystery-prone Seams) is only one embarrassment away from having her committed.
Mister Walton, meanwhile, travels to Sundry’s homestead, where folks prove, by turns, warm and memorable, eccentric and irascible. The travelers deal with romantic entanglements and get wind of a ghostly visitation, even as the Members of the Club climb up and down Portland’s social ladder in their valiant attempt to find Walter!
As ever, the Moosepath League is in the fore!
