The Ghost of Cutler Creek

by Cynthia DeFelice
A sequel to the award-winning The Ghost of Fossil Glen and The Ghost and Mrs. Hobbs

the Story

The third adventure featuring Allie Nichols, Ghost Magnet, her best friend Dub, and her teacher’s dog Hoover. There’s something odd going on at the local pet store, and something very peculiar about L.J. Cutler, the new boy in town.


“Sixth grader Allie Nichols, first introduced in The Ghost of Fossil Glen, returns with her friend Dub for her third adventure….DeFelice has created a suspenseful tale that will leave readers rapidly turning pages to learn Hoover’s fate. The pacing is good and Allie and Dub are likable characters. Mystery fans will not be disappointed.” – School Library Journal, March 2004.

“As always, DeFelice tells a gripping, suspenseful story, keeping readers engaged with realistically depicted human as well as animal characters.” – Horn Book, March/April 2004
