Welcome to the humorous adventures of three girls – 12-year-old Amanda, her kid sister Sally, and her best friend Roxanne – who find themselves trapped on Shadow Island, a spooky island near a sleepy resort somewhere on Lake Superior. To have any chance to get away, the girls will have to explore the mysterious and long-abandoned Stardust Hotel. However, the old Victorian building, with its many rooms, towers, and dusty cellar . . . is not quite as deserted as everyone thought!

In Raymond Bial’s popular ghost stories, the youngsters are sure to encounter a host of ghosts as they dash from one funny spooky encounter to the next. To escape the desolate island, the girls will need to unravel a tangle of plots, old and new, that have their grip on the haunted hotel.

In the process, they learn a lot about themselves – and about the importance of friends, family, and doing the right thing.

Raymond Bial loves to tell funny ghost stories for kids. His humorous spooky tales, set in the Midwest and full of regional heritage and history, are fun to read, not too scary for young readers, and always deliver good lessons on friendship and doing the right thing, as the kids tumble from one ghostly adventure in a haunted house (or barn, or cemetery, or dark woods . . .) to the next. These are good teaching stories, but they are so much fun that kids certainly won't mind the occasional history lesson or moral encouragement to help someone in need (even if that person is a ghost).

Raymond Bial is the acclaimed author of more than 100 books for children and adults, including Amish Home, The Underground Railroad, Where Lincoln Walked, Ellis Island, and others. His other books of humorous ghost stories for kids include The Fresh Grave (short stories), The Ghost of Honeymoon Creek (a novel), and Dripping Blood Cave (short stories). He lives in Urbana, Illinois.
