The Ghost of Cutler Creek

( 9 )

Overview

Allie Nichols has hardly laid the last spirit to rest when she’s sure that another one is trying to reach her. But how can Allie help a ghost who won’t speak? All she has to go on is a sound—a sort of whine—and a smell. At the same time, a strange boy joins her sixth-grade class. Allie doesn’t understand why L.J. Cutler would start a new school at the end of the year, or why he’s such a surly kid. She wants nothing to do with him. Then Mr. Henry, a teacher she loves, asks Allie to dog-sit Hoover, his golden ...

Overview

Allie Nichols has hardly laid the last spirit to rest when she’s sure that another one is trying to reach her. But how can Allie help a ghost who won’t speak? All she has to go on is a sound—a sort of whine—and a smell. At the same time, a strange boy joins her sixth-grade class. Allie doesn’t understand why L.J. Cutler would start a new school at the end of the year, or why he’s such a surly kid. She wants nothing to do with him. Then Mr. Henry, a teacher she loves, asks Allie to dog-sit Hoover, his golden retriever, while he’s away and to befriend L.J. over the summer. She’s delighted to spend time with Hoover, but she hardly looks forward to visiting L.J. Cutler—until she discovers a connection between L.J., the ghost, and Hoover.

When Allie is contacted by the ghost of a dog, she and Dub investigate the surly new boy at school and his father, who may be running a puppy mill, to see if they are involved.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Sixth-grade sleuth and "ghost magnet" Allie Nichols returns in The Ghost of Cutler Creek by Cynthia DeFelice. As in The Ghost of Fossil Glen and The Ghost and Mrs. Hobbs, Allie and her friend Dub solve earthly mysteries to help a ghost rest in peace. This time, the ghost (which communicates only in whimpers and moans) wasn't human in life. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature
This is DeFelice's third book about sixth-grader, Allie Nichols, who has the ability to sense the presence of ghosts. So does her little brother, Mike, although he is too young to realize that what he hears and smells are ghosts. The reason the ghosts try to reach Allie and Mike is to get some kind of help. In this book, the ghost is that of a dog, and the children sense its presence by its whining sounds and smells. As the story begins, a new boy appears in school just a couple of days before school lets out for the summer. He is the typical "bad" character—mean and resentful. Allie and her friend, Dub, promise one of their teachers that they would try to be friendly with him over the summer because he is lonely. It's quite predictable that the boy and the ghost dog are connected. Allie and Dub investigate, and after many adventures, solve the mystery. DeFelice is a popular writer of books for young people, and mystery lovers will enjoy this book. It would also be an intriguing book for reluctant readers. 2004, Farrar Straus and Giroux, Ages 9 to 12.
—Kathy Egner, Ph.D.
School Library Journal
Gr 4-6-Sixth-grader Allie Nichols, first introduced in The Ghost of Fossil Glen (Farrar, 1998), returns with her friend Dub for her third adventure. The 11-year-old is a ghost magnet, but in the past her encounters have been with deceased humans. This time, she is dealing with a dog, which makes communication rather difficult. Allie is elated when she is asked to dog-sit for Hoover, her beloved teacher's pet. When the animal is stolen, Allie is distraught. She soon believes that her ghost dog, Hoover's kidnapping, and the mysterious deaths of puppies at the local pet store are all connected. Allie suspects that the new boy in town, L. J. Cutler, and his menacing father may be running a puppy mill, and she must convince her parents and the local authorities of her suspicions. DeFelice has created a suspenseful tale that will leave readers rapidly turning pages to learn Hoover's fate. The pacing is good and Allie and Dub are likable characters. Mystery fans will not be disappointed.-Linda Zeilstra Sawyer, Skokie Public Library, IL Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
In the third story featuring young ghost magnet, 11-year-old Allie, the ghost communicating with her this time is a dog. Allie loves dogs but her brother's allergic to them, so when her favorite teacher asks her to dog-sit, she's delighted. But when Hoover turns up missing, Allie and her sidekick Dub are convinced that the surly new boy L.J. and his menacing father are behind it. Keen readers will quickly pick up the clues that point to the mean man and abusive father who's running a puppy mill. Ghosts are treated matter-of-factly and the plot has a fair amount of contrivance but the child-like enthusiasm and naivete are believable, especially Allie and Dub's entrepreneurial plan for making and selling low-cal dog treats. This can be read independently, though those who've read the other two will appreciate Allie and her ghost charisma more. Enticing title and cover. (Fiction. 8-12)
