Shadow Island: A Spooky Tale of Lake Superior.




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. . . . with its many rooms, towers, and dusty cellar. Turns out it's not quite as deserted as everyone thought!

In Raymond Bial’s ghost stories for kids, the characters encounter lots of ghosts as they dash from one funny spooky encounter to the next.

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

Raymond Bial's 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 a bit of regional history.

Raymond Bial is the 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.
