In the town of Ghostly, where every house is haunted, two ghosts are frightened. . . .

Someone is haunting them with mysterious sounds: Clack, cluckity-cluck bing, blub blub. Or is it click, cluck-clackity cling, flub flub? They can't agree on what the sounds are, but they know they're not ghostly noises. What could be more scary?

Good thing ace reporter Dirk Bones is on the case. Dirk writes for the town newspaper, The Ghostly Tombs, and as he collects the facts for his stories, he also solves mysteries.

As Dirk investigates this zany case, he encounters more silly, creepy creatures in a town full of promise for more surprising mysteries to come.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Young readers will relish both the carefully contained moments of tension and the contrasting elements of whimsy…All but the most easily scared children will follow the manageable declarative sentences to the end, where a gently amusing resolution to the mystery awaits.”

    Booklist

  • “[The] hilarious plot will please youngsters who often they want horror but are relieved to get humor instead.”

    School Library Journal

  • “Bones sets out into a stormy night on a successful investigation that takes him from creepy basement to spooky graveyard, and includes encounters with a terrified werewolf, a vampire Emeril wannabe, and other typical town residents…A burbling cauldron of ‘bat foot stew with crispy worm brains’ is but one of the shivery delights that await emergent readers in this not-too-creepy caper. Stay tuned for sequels.”
