A Guest for Halloween (Lex and Ricky Mystery Series) by William Henderson

Lex & Ricky had it all in the big city, lots of friends and plenty of distractions. Suddenly they are uprooted to a house in the bush outside a small town in the mountains.

Before they could walk to school and the worst thing they had to worry about was the traffic. Now they have to wait for the school bus and there are things out there that might eat them.

Everything has changed.

About the Author

I have come to understand that happiness is a byproduct of working at something you enjoy and not a goal in itself. It can be anything, a sport, musical instrument or hobby, as long as it takes effort and discipline. Some time ago I realized that one of the things that truly made me happy was writing.Anything that gets people, especially young people to read is wonderful. However, it is tragic that we have separated and withdrawn from the real world to such an extent that we no longer see the mystery and wonders of nature that are our birthright.The Lex & Ricky Mysteries are meant to expose young people to the wonders of the natural world and our collective native heritage. An awareness of sustainability issues is provided along with questioning the cost of trading away our inheritance for short lived "prosperity," often to people who do not live in our communities. Most people cannot possibly imagine the rich natural and spiritual life they are denying themselves.

The writing style of this author is intelligent and captivating. He keeps his audience sitting on the edge of their seats waiting to see what the next page will bring. The plot is very well thought out and the characters are well developed. The only criticism I have is that I want to read more. Hopefully this is the first of a Lex and Ricky series!

I was searching for a books for my son and downloaded this one. My intention was to just read a couple of pages to see what flavor it was. Sometime later, the book finished, I found myself laying on the couch thinking about all the other mysteries out there around us that we are just to wrapped up in our own lives to notice. My son read it without putting it down in one evening after supper!

Intelligent and well written the author knows his subject and is not afraid to send you in search of dictionary. In a time of zombies, vampires and werewolves it behooves us to remember that there are things out there that may still exist that we have not discovered. Some mysteries have lived with us since the dawn of time and I for one am not sure I want to know the answer. I came away feeling that I really learned something.

It never ceases to amaze me how much richness there is to native culture. I learned so much about the people and land around Terrace, British Columbia. I had no idea they had a volcano erupt there or that there are hot springs that keep the water warm in the dead of winter. I have always found the bigfoot legends spooky and fascinating. I understand this is the first in a series and I hope to see more soon!

Held my 11 year olds attention but interesting enough that I read it and enjoyed it too. Was surprised at the little bit of fowl language on the first page.

Very interesting take on a persistent legend from a culture thousands of years old that we know nothing about. In a time when writing is populated by vampires and zombies it is refreshing to find a book with a real historical mystery. Having travelled through this area in British Columbia, I find it very interesting to find out about it's exciting history and culture. I really had no idea! A writing style that lends realism to the characters while teaching volumes about the local geology and legend. A real mystery for the young adult!

This book is the bomb-diggity. It is explaining the details low but enough to understand the whole scene. An a+grade book.

Good read. Wish it was longer and told more about the old ones. I enjoyed it as an adult even though it is meant for kids. Hopefully the second book ( if there is one) will continue this great developing story!
