43 Old Cemetery Road #03: Till Death Do Us Barkby Kate Klise
Synopses & Reviews
"The Klise sisters have their formula down to a science: a heavily illustrated, comedic/ghostly mystery revealed in a series of letters and documents by a quirky cast whose pun-filled names are truly groanworthy."—Booklist
When a dog arrives at Spence Mansion, Seymour is overjoyed. His adoptive parents, Ignatius B. Grumply and Olive C. Spence, are less enthusiastic—especially when Secret, the dog, begins barking all night long. Is it possible Secret just misses his old companion, the late Noah Breth, whose children are fighting like cats and dogs over their fathers money? Or does Secret have a secret that, in the end, will make the entire town of Ghastly howl with delight?
In this thirdand#160;tale from 43 Old Cemetery Road, author Kate Klise and illustrator M. Sarah Klise deliver a runaway mystery told in letters, limericks, a Last Will, and loose change. Heads or tails, itand#8217;s guaranteed to please cat and dog lovers alikeand#8212;and anyone whoand#8217;s ever tried to keep a secret.
The seventh graders at Geyser Creek Middle School are beeyond stressed. They're preparing for a spelling bee and a horrible standardized test called the BEE (Basic Education Evaluation). Plus, this year the hunt for their honeys has become all-important. It's a good thing they have Honey, a bee that spells (yes, really!), as their class pet--and one fabulous teacher named Florence Waters. Sweet!
