The Elmwood Elementary was overcrowded this year and the 3rd grade had to move into the old Blackwell mansion.

The teacher, Mr. Jenkins, announced that they would be putting together a newspaper. The students would be put into groups. Norma, Adam, Chick, Debbie, Joey and Dan were picked for the psychic investigation committee.

They would investigate the strange things that were happening in the school. Supplies were going missing, pencils were falling off desks, dark shadows were seen and strange noises were heard.

This is one of my favorite books from my childhood. I had lost the book years ago but I found a new copy at a thrift shop recently. This is a wonderful book about friendship. If you can find a copy, buy it!
