Horn Book Review

In a plot overly familiar to every fan of [cf2]Scooby-Doo[cf1], three kids unmask a ghost hoax to derail a fraudulent real estate deal. Followers of this mystery series will welcome back sleuths Dink, Josh, and Ruth Rose, as well as other inhabitants of Green Lawn, but won't find any new contributions to the genre. Pencil sketches illustrate the chapter book. (c) Copyright 2010. The Horn Book, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
