Dirk Bones and the Mystery of the Haunted House
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.

"Cushman's illustrations are delightfully silly and spirited; his hilarious plot will please youngsters who often claim that they want horror but are relieved to find humor instead."--School Library Journal
