    A Good, Clean, Scary Read for Middle Grade Readers

    Ghost of Crimson Dawn, the sequel to Mystery of Spider Mountain, finds the Hamilton kids and their grandmother visiting an aunt and uncle's ranch, where they learn new chores and attend a gathering of witches, warlocks and ghosts who gather annually on the summer solstice. While there, Danny (9) follows a ghost to an injured dog and the three kids get entangled in a mystery only Bagnomi, their Ouija board spirit, can help them solve. I found this series a good fit for kids who like to read good, clean (if scary) books.

    ~Jinx Schwartz, mystery author

    I don't usually read YA books, but I did pick up GHOST OF CRIMSON DAWN by Jean Henry Mead. In this episode of the Hamilton Kids Mystery series Jaime, Danny and Sam travel with their grandmother to visit their aunt and uncle's farm. Their visit was filled with surprises when they encountered stories of witches, warlocks and ghosts. Their encounters lead to action and suspense as someone sets their uncle's haystacks on fire and injures a sweet dog, and the kids use a Ouiji Board to try to figure out what's going on. This book would be best read on Halloween or on a dark and stormy night. Kids who enjoy the occult in particular would enjoy this story.
