Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

<p> Roses are red,<br> Violets are blue.<br> If a ghost can write books,<br> Why not greeting cards, too? <br> <br> The bestselling trio from Spence Mansion is launching a greeting card company called Greetings from the Graveyard. But what kind of card do you send to an ex-girlfriend who threatens to publish the love letters of Ignatius B. Grumply? And what do you send when the town of Ghastly is rocked by its first crime wave and two escaped convicts are on the loose? If you're Olive C. Spence, you send for your old butler, T. Leeves, who arrives just in time for tea--and trouble!<br> Told in generously illustrated letters and newspaper articles, the 43 Old Cemetery Road books are a visual feast perfect for kids who love series like Big Nate and the Dork Diaries but with a ghostly twist.<br> </p>

Horn Book Review

Young Seymour and his caretakers, Grumply (alive) and Olive (a ghost), start a greeting card company but are soon distracted by Grumply's ex-girlfriend, Nadia. Meanwhile, two escaped convicts sneak into town and our mystery-solving family deals with Nadia's threats to publish Grumply's love letters. This funny mock-gothic tale (book six) is told through playful narrative devices: letters, newspaper clippings, and comical black-and-white illustrations. (c) Copyright 2014.
