As It Lies!

(4) 1-3 Calico: Ghost Detectors series. Illustrated by Dave Shephard. Young ghost detectives Malcolm and Dandy encounter a doll-obsessed poltergeist (Dolled), a haunted mini-golf course (Lies), a dance teacher running rehearsals from beyond the grave (Kick), and a ghost zookeeper with a full complement of ghost zoo animals (Lions). Stilted dialogue aside, the large print, simple plots, and comic-style illustrations make these light books accessible for those not quite ready for Goosebumps. Review covers these Calico: Ghost Detectors titles: All Dolled Up!, As It Lies!, One, Two, Three, Kick!, and Lions, Tiger & Bears, Oh My!.
