Overview

Inside these pages you'll find 3 of Johnny Dixon's most bone-chilling, spine-tingling mysteries:

The Curse of the Blue Figurine
Johnny doesn't believe that the ghost of mad Father Baart haunts the town church. But then Johnny takes an old scroll and a seemingly harmless figurine from the church basement, accepts a magic ring from a mysterious stranger -- and is suddenly plunged into a terrifying adventure that may cost him his life....

The Mummy, the Will, and the Crypt
Johnny is sure that he can solve the riddle that will reveal the hiding place of wealthy Mr. Glomus's will -- and net himself a hefty reward in the process. Although Johnny's neighbor Professor Childermass warns him to stay away from the Glomus mansion, Johnny can't resist a challenge. Soon he's alone in the deserted house...with one of the undead at his heels!

The Spell of the Sorcerer's Skull
Strange things begin to happen after Johnny discovers a dollhouse in Professor Childermass's house. First, Johnny starts to see a menacing jack-o'-lantern in the windows of the Childermass house -- a face invisible to everyone else. Then he realizes the dollhouse contains a replica of the room where the professor's granduncle was murdered. When Johnny takes a miniature skull from the dollhouse to try to solve the mystery of this murder, demonic forces are unleashed, capturing the professor -- and putting Johnny in the path of true evil.
