This book was a delight to read. Even as an adult, I loved the mystery and characters of this book. What a joy that you can read a book to your kids, or grand-kids, and not have to worry about the language. Nor the plot being way beyond the age group this book is.
Jock Avery is staying the summer with his grandparents at their Lake House. Yet this year will be different; as there are new kids next door for him to meet. Together they are a team and out to solve a mystery. Jock hears strange sounds at night that he can’t identify nor could his new friends.
The ending is a hoot, and I can’t say enough about how much I think kids from 6 to 12 will love this book also. This book brings in fresh air I think for the genre needs.
