“Kids will love these ghostly adventures!”
– Margo Dill’s Read These Books and Use Them!
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).
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 some fun, not-so-scary adventures . . . facing (and learning some valuable lessons from) the ghosts of the past.
Raymond Bial is the acclaimed author of more than 100 books for children and adults, including Amish Home, The Underground Railroad, Where Lincoln Walked, Ellis Island, and others. His previous ghost stories include The Fresh Grave, The Ghost of Honeymoon Creek, and Shadow Island. He lives in Urbana, Illinois.
