About the Author:

Doug Cushman is the creator of many favorite mystery stories for young readers featuring such memorable heroes as the intrepid Aunt Eater, the grasshopper gumshoe Inspector Hopper, and the ace reporter Dirk Bones. He has also illustrated many books written by other authors, including Jack Prelutsky's What a Day It Was at School! He lives in Paris, France.

From Booklist:

K-Gr. 2. In what is presumably the first in a new I Can Read! series, a seasoned creator of easy-to-read mysteries introduces a skeleton investigative journalist. After a pair of spooked spooks report unusual noises coming from their cellar, Dirk Bones investigates, tracking the "clack, cluckity-cluck bing, blub, blub" to a surprising source. Young readers will relish both the carefully contained moments of tension and the contrasting elements of whimsy, as the town of Ghostly's ghoulish residents reveal unexpectedly benign natures. Having said that, Cushman's bony hero isn't quite as winning; his trenchcoat and rakish fedora never quite compensate for the vacant expression about his eye sockets. Still, all but the most easily scared children will follow the manageable declarative sentences to the end, where a gently amusing resolution to the mystery awaits. The book doesn't expressly mention Halloween, but its setting will especially suit the witching time of year. Jennifer Mattson
