#1 - The Case Of The Giggling Ghost by Linda Lee Maifair, Zondervan Publishing, 1993
The Case of the Giggling Ghost (Darcy J. Doyle, Daring Detective, No. 3)
Genre: Mystery
Target Audience: Girls 13 and younger
Subjects: Helping others, siblings, truth
Summary: Darcy has made arrangements for her group to help clean the inside of Mrs. Pendleton's house next week, but when someone suggests the house may be haunted everyone backs out except her. Can she use her detective skills to prove the house is not haunted or will the Willing Workers remain unwilling to help Mrs. Pendleton?
Notes: This is a cute book, but it does not really deal with the issues that much. It doesn't deal with the fact that there is no such thing as ghosts, it doesn't deal with the bad attitude some of the other kids have towards helping others, etc. It does throw in a reference to Psalms 23 and trusting God when afraid.
Recommendation Scale: 2
