Sneak Peek: Episode 14 Goes Live Friday, March 26

Latest Exquisite Corpse Adventure Episode Written by Linda Sue Park

In our last episode of The Exquisite Corpse Adventure 13, by M. T. Anderson, Nancy and Joe had fallen back into time, where they met their parents and themselves-as babies. And what cute babies they were! Their parents explained that monsters from another dimension were coming to get them and they had to save the babies. Of course Nancy and Joe suggested the circus, because that's where they ended up. After the parents and babies skedaddled, Nancy and Joe prepared to fight the monsters. Searching for weapons, Joe found Arm's robot torso. He screwed Arm into one socket while Nancy secured the second arm (which she happened to have with her). Just as the monsters closed in, the headless and legless robot moved!

In Episode 14 by Linda Sue Park, our heroes, Nancy and Joe, come face to face with one of the monsters. A "slobbering, slavering, panting..." wolf. Do they get away? What kind of circus-like plan do they attempt? What about the robot?
