Ott, Poppy. Poppy Ott was created by "Leo Edwards," the pseudonym of Edward Edson Lee (Andy Blake, Jerry Todd) and appeared in several books in the “Jerry Todd” series (1925-1940) and in the nine-book “Poppy Ott” series (1926-1939).

Poppy Ott's full name is "Nicholas Carter Sherlock Holmes Ott" (his father was a would-be private detective and fan of mysteries). Ott, who looks like Huckleberry Finn, comes to Jerry Todd's Tutter, Illinois and took over leadership of Todd’s gang, leading it on various adventures, primarily humorous mysteries.
