Tommy Learner from 1900s New York and Jezebel Lemon from current day New York join forces through a time portal to fight the evil Dead Gentleman and his Grave Walkers. Strong boy and girl characters should attract middle school readers. A magic mechanical bird, three-armed trogs and a submarine named the Nautilus (a hats off to Jules Verne) combine to make this Steampunk tale entertaining. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0375855963, Hardcover)

The dead are up and walking, and the Gentleman is at the door...

Featuring a kid hero, time travel, and otherworld portals in unexpected places (maybe there are monsters under your bed), The Dead Gentleman is a wild ride between parallel New York City timestreams—1901 and today. Eleven-year-old Tommy Learner is a street orphan and an unlikely protege to the Explorers, a secret group dedicated to exploring portals—the hidden doorways to other worlds. But while investigating an attercop (man-eating spider) in the basement of an old hotel, Tommy is betrayed—and trapped. And it's then that his world collides with that of modern-day Jezebel Lemon, who—until the day she decides to explore her building's basement—had no bigger worries than homework and boys. Now, Jezebel and Tommy must thwart the Dead Gentleman—a legendary villain whose last unconquered world is our own planet Earth, a realm where the dead stay dead. Until now. Can two kids put an end to this ancient evil and his legions of Gravewalkers?
