What Josh thought would be the dullest summer of his life, spent with his eccentric aunt, turns chilling when he meets the ghost of a coal miner killed in a mine explosion. Willie has been waiting years for some kind soul to dig up his leg and rebury it with the rest of him—only then will he be at peace. Josh agrees to do the grisly deed, but when he digs in the old cemetery, he finds more than Willie’s leg bones. Who buried the box of cash in the grave, and why? How far will that person go to get the money back? 

The Ghost’s Grave is a deliciously spooky and masterfully suspenseful adventure from Peg Kehret.

    " The ghosts grave was a really wonderfull book in which a boy named Josh spends his summer with his Great Aunt Esther when he happens across a ghost named Willy in an old tree house his Aunt used to play in, and things take off from there. I don't want to spoil the end so check this book out of the library and start reading! "

    " I just finished The Ghost's Grave by Peg Kehret. I think it is a good book because it is exciting and funny. It is about a boy named Josh who goes to his aunts house for the summer. His aunt has a tree house. He soon finds out the tree house is haunted by a coal miner ghost named Willie. Willie had lost his leg.His leg was buried at the cemetery but his body is buried at his favorite fishing spot. Willie asks Josh to move his leg bones from the cemetery to where the rest of him is buried but the question is will Josh do it? I would give this book 5 stars because it was exciting and attention grabbing. "

    " Good book!! Very suspensuful in many ways!!! There are many things that could be true in this book such as; when he was dead tired after the bike ride and the walk, and when somone breaks their ankle. And some unrealistic things such as; Willie and the hat!!!! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kristi | 1/17/2014

    " I like Peg Kehret, but I had forgotten that her books are geared toward younger kids. The premise wasn't realistic and it wasn't the least bit scary, but it was fairly entertaining. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Beth | 10/12/2013

    " This is a fairly short chapter book that would be great for a boy to read, grades 4 and up. Although it is about a boy who meets a ghost, it isn't terribly scary, but has plenty of suspense. It is one of the 2008-09 Young Hoosier nominees. "

    " The Ghosts Grave is a really good book, it was one of the three books I was reading last night and once I picked it up, I could hardly put it down. The beginnings not that great but it gets MUCH better in the middle. This book is short, but I highly suggest it to everyone. "

    " The voice is all wrong. The protagonist is a 12 year old boy, but he often reads like a grown woman. Probably because a grown woman wrote the novel and didn't really capture his voice very well. I lost interest toward the end and just forced myself to finish it. "
