Publisher's Summary

Ghost-story lover and debut author Erin Petti has written a quirky story for fans of The Goonies, Goosebumps, and Coraline.

Eleven-year-old budding scientist Thelma Bee has adventure in her blood. But she gets more than she bargained for when a ghost kidnaps her father. Now her only clues are a strange jewelry box and the word "Return," whispered to her by the ghost. It's up to Thelma to get her dad back, and it might be more dangerous than she thought - there's someone wielding dark magic, and they're coming after her next.

I hope there are sequels!

My kids (aged pre-K through middle school) and I loved this book! It is so fun and the narration makes it all the more enjoyable. Seeing as I am NOT a ghost story person in the slightest, I was initially concerned the tale might be too scary for the kids - or rather, for me - but Petti created a well paced, captivating and humorous plot that engaged my littlest kids attention spans through my biggest kids interest to keep them asking “what happens next?!” So even with my scaredy-cat tendencies I found it really hard to not be sucked into the peculiar world of Thelma Bee (see what I did there?).

Long and short of it, this one is sort of a blend of styles featured in The Underland Chronicles, Harry Potter and something else with a super nerdy girl who has abnormal opinions of tater tots. An absolutely awesome pick for October!!

Great story and amazing narration!

The characters are delightful. The story is intriguing without being too scary. Fun for children and adults.
