ABOUT THIS BOOK
In this delightful new collection of humorous ghost stories by noted children’s author Raymond Bial, young readers will enjoy the further adventures of young teen Hank Cantrell and his fleet-of-foot, ’fraidy-cat sidekick, Clifford Hopkins.
Together, the two ghost magnets encounter a host of spooks, haunts, spectres, and just plain ornery folks who won’t die and go away . . . until Hank works out a solution (assisted – if that’s the word – by the big-talking, fainthearted Cliffie).
The book picks up where two previous volumes of Hank & Clifford stories left off (The Ghost of Honeymoon Creek and The Fresh Grave & Other Ghostly Stories).
Join the plucky fellows, and their sweethearts Rosie and Mary Ethel, as they scour the surroundings of mythical small-town Myrtleville, somewhere in the rural Midwest, for another round of fun, not-so-scary adventures . . . facing (and learning some valuable lessons from) the ghosts of the past.
