Searching for their lost baseball, Tre and Kaylee end up in a deserted old haunted mansion. They find themselves in the middle of a mystery complete with nice ghosts, an evil ghostly traveler, hidden treasure, a complicated riddle, and a scroll created by a Greek goddess.
I read The Haunted House on the Little Egg Harbor River by Lynne Leatham to my 9 and 7 year old boys as a bedtime story. Usually I read one chapter of a book a night to them, but they begged me every time to read a second. As an adult, I could see the plot holes typical of childrens books, but even my logical 9 year old who often sees them, too, didn’t find any in this book. My 7 year old thought the story was true, ghosts and all. I highly recommend this book. It’s an excellent not-so-scary ghost story to read aloud with your kids.

Thanks. =) I put a kindle sample for the kidlet, and if he likes it I’ll buy it. It’s so difficult finding appropriate exciting fiction for someone his age (11). hopefully he’ll enjoy this one.
