The Ghost's Grave
by Peg Kehret

If a ghost asked you to dig up his severed leg for him, would you do it? Will Josh do it?

Josh has little hope that his summer with his elderly, eccentric aunt would be anything but long and boring. Why did his parents have to leave him stranded when he could be home playing summer baseball? But they did, and he's stuck.

It doesn't take long before he realizes that life in the country is about to take a turn toward to the unbelievable (starting with the way his aunt gets rid of bats and his meeting with the friendly ghost of a long dead miner) and the dangerous (ending with a terrifying encounter with an unlikely threat)!

You'll enjoy this story that weaves familiar ghost story motifs into animal rescue, a special bond between young and old, and some surprising need for quick-thinking problem solving. You and your students will love it!
