Intriguing Ebook Mystery For Kids!

The Carousel Ghost is a compelling mystery and ghost tale as well as a relatable and realistic story about friendship. Young readers will enjoy the amusement park setting, the great characters (both live and...well...not), the creepiness, and the twists and turns of this well-constructed mystery. Ms. Pelleschi keeps the story moving along so well that it's hard to put down - even for an adult reader. The main character's efforts to deal with changing relationships in her life are authentic and moving. Highly recommended! Get it here!
