Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Debra Lampert-Rudman
The "Spotlight Club Mysteries," recently published in paperback, were originally written by mother and daughter co-authors, and this latest book is published posthumously following Florence Parry Heide's passing. Aspiring librarian Cindy Temple, Bookmobile Librarian Terri, and Dexter and Jay search for clues to try to find out who in their sleepy town wants a library book "enough to climb in through a skylight." Remembering the "Usher Rule"—suspecting the people they like as well as those they do not, the troupe has to determine if the bookmobile is bewitched—and if a ghost is causing all the trouble, if it is "magic" (a magic show enters into the story), if it is safe to venture inside a dark bookmobile, or if it is something that they should stay away from. Wholesome and dated, but quick-paced, the book will appeal to reluctant readers. Illustrations throughout by Seymour Fleishman help move the eleven chapter book along. Part of the "Spotlight Club Mystery" series from Albert Whitman & Company. Reviewer: Debra Lampert-Rudman
