Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 3-4-Another mystery from a prolific and popular author. When nine-year-old Chad's father gets a good deal on an old log cabin by the lake, Chad's older and wiser acquaintance, Jeannie, implies that there may be a ghost on the premises, and she's right. Many years ago, Tim Tapper was accused of causing an accident while he was driving a group of children in his truck. The real culprit, however, was an icy road, and Tim actually saved the children from harm. Chad must figure out a way to put the wronged ghost to rest. The characters are sketched just completely enough to play their parts in the plot; the ghost is scary but not terrifying. Chad and Jeannie's relationship improves a bit as she reveals her own fear and lends her support, treating him more like an equal and almost as a friend. A satisfying story.-Carolyn Jenks, First Parish Unitarian Church, Portland, ME
