Dust jacket by Gavin L. O'Keefe


 An unholy love! That’s what young Erlys Janway found herself in the throes of as she awaits word from her brother, Pell Barneyfield, as to whether they are truly blood-related. If he can come up with the proof they’re not related—and then make it to Foleysburg, where MacWhorter’s traveling circus is camped—then Erlys won’t be compelled to marry Golden-Tongue, the circus barker. But first Pell’ll have to traverse Old Twistibus, a road so crooked they gave it a name. In the meantime, Angus MacWhorter, kindly owner of the circus, is offered $1000 for a $10 diorama of a hanged fish with a crown. What’s with that? Only the answer to all of the riddles of this classic 1953 tale, the last Keeler published in English—until Ramble House!
