In this third tale from 43 Old Cemetery Road, author Kate Klise and illustrator M. Sarah Klise deliver a runaway mystery told in letters, limericks, a Last Will, and loose change. Heads or tails, it’s guaranteed to please cat and dog lovers alike—and anyone who’s ever tried to keep a secret.
When a dog arrives at Spence Mansion, Seymour is overjoyed. His adoptive parents, Ignatius B. Grumply and Olive C. Spence, are less enthusiastic—especially when Secret, the dog, begins barking all night long. Is it possible Secret just misses his old companion, the late Noah Breth, whose children are fighting like cats and dogs over their father’s money? Or does Secret have a secret that, in the end, will make the entire town of Ghastly howl with delight?
"As always, the authors keep readers giggling . . . Good, merry fun dances on every page, with bubbling humor for child and adult alike."—Kirkus Reviews"The Klise sisters have their formula down to a science: a heavily illustrated, comedic/ghostly mystery revealed in a series of letters and documents by a quirky cast whose pun-filled names are truly groanworthy."—BooklistPraise for Dying to Meet You:
