Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 4-7-This sequel to The Shimmering Ghost of Riversend (1991) and The Secret of the Floating Phantom (1994, both Lerner) finds 11-year-old Kathy Wicklow in rural New Mexico, staying with her aunt's friend Concha. Disturbed by "visions" of a giant human skull without its lower jaw, Kathy stumbles across what might be an important artifact-a lower jaw made of crystal. When it is stolen from Concha's cabinet, Kathy's friend's Aunt Luna, a curandera (healing woman) and an adamant opponent of modern medicine, is the prime suspect. If Kathy's friends in some way represent the scientific worldview, and Luna the "ancient ways," then Kathy is the bridge between them, the link to show that the best path brings past and present ways together. Full of action and plot twists, the book is likely to be popular with readers wanting page-turning adventures. Lehr occasionally includes Spanish words in the text, a couple of which are misspelled.-Coop Renner, Moreno Elementary School, El Paso, TX Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
