    Highly Entertaining Children's Mystery

    This is a fast-paced story which is not only a self-contained adventure (or series of adventures) but also sets up the characters to reappear in more mysteries. The central figure, Jaime, is strong and sympathetic and constantly having to try to control the excesses of her two brothers, Danny and Sam. The Spider Mountain of the title is in fact a hill near their house but their imaginations provide its scary name as well as the names of some of the features on it, like the spooky Dead Man's Tree. But the house on top of it, with its robbers and fierce dogs, is far from imaginary. When they climb to investigate it, they arouse the men's suspicions and anger and their adventures start. Add a Ouija board through which a spirit, Bagnomi, speaks to them, a Grandma whose new red, curly hairstyle makes her resemble Ronald McDonald and, as the children's fears are overcome by their curiosity, you have the ingredients for a highly entertaining tale.
