I read a lot of middle grade books, especially mysteries. I like mystery stories, plus I have a granddaughter in elementary school. It's nice to find books that she might enjoy reading. And, children's books are wonderful, relaxing stories that I enjoy in between the adult horror, thriller and murder mystery books I like to read. After I finish a chilling, creepy book, I like to relax with a more light-hearted story. Middle-grade books are perfect!

The Mystery of One Wish Pond is the second book in the Ghost Twins series. Robbie and Rebeka accidentally drowned in the 1940's. Since then they haunt their old house and the Kickingbird Lake area, learning how to interact with things around them and the living. Sometimes they find a cool mystery to investigate. Even ghosts can be curious! The lake and their old house are now part of a tourist resort, so there is always something to investigate!

This series is so cute and fun to read. I like the fact that there are rules that the twins had to learn like they can touch things if no living thing is touching it at the same time. The twins had to learn what ghosts can do, and what they can't. Their house always has different families staying in it because it's part of a tourist resort, so the twins always have different people to watch and try to haunt.

This time the twins house is invaded by two boys and their Aunt Jenny. The boys encroach upon the twins' favorite room in the house, and their gazebo out back. They do their best haunting to try and take back their favorite spots. But soon they are on an adventure, following the boys on a camping trip to Mystery Island and investigating the legend of One Wish Pond!

There are 8 books in the Ghost Twins series. The books are all about 100 pages long or so. Nice length for a middle-grade student or a quick read for an adult. I enjoy this series as a bit of light-hearted relaxing reading in between the adult horror, murder mystery and thriller books I like to read. Refreshes my mind a bit before I jump back into scary stuff. :)

Dian Curtis Regan is the author of many books for kids including Jilly's Ghost and Liver Cookies.

Each book in this series opens with a newspaper clipping dated 1944, stating that twins Robert and Rebecca Zuffel (and their St Bernard Thatch) went missing and presumed drowned in Kickingbird Lake. The stories themselves take place in the present day, Robbie and Beka having spent the last fifty years as ghosts, which cheerfully haunt the holiday resort of Juniper with their dog. For a long time they've had the Zuffel family house to themselves, but now that it's been sold and renovated, they find themselves having to share their space with a steady influx of tourist families.

This is the basic formula of the series, and it's one that will certainly appeal to its young readers: ghost stories from the ghosts' point of view, in which the twins take it upon themselves to haunt the families that invade their territory. Every book introduces a new family, and by the end of the story, the twins have both spooked and helped the younger members, who remain (mostly) oblivious to their presence.

In "The Mystery of One Wish Pond," the house is rented out by cousins TJ and Jeffrey, under the supervision of their Aunt Jenny. Since the hapless cousins are city boys, they are somewhat disgruntled at the fact that their outdoorsy, bush-whacking aunt considers this a great opportunity for the two of them to get close to nature and learn survival tactics. The twins watch in amusement as the boys rebel under their aunts tutelage, but grow concerned when Aunt Jenny sends the boys out on their own to Mystery Island to put their lessons to practical use. They know all too well how dangerous that area can be...

Following the cousins on their camping trip, they overhear Jeffrey's plans to find One Wish Pond, a legendary body of water on the island that supposedly grants wishes to those in need. But on the very first night, strange noises surround the campsite - noises that the twins aren't responsible for.

This is an unusual series of books (not many children's books have dead kids as their protagonists!) but Dian Curtis Regan takes an odd premise and has a lot of fun with it. There is no commentary on the afterlife or any theological discussions on why the twins might be tied to this earthly plain, instead Regan submits a list of "ghost rules" as to what the twins can and can't do. It feels a little arbitrary, but perhaps more answers can be found in forthcoming books. As it stands, there is much poignancy to the ghosts' existence, as they follow people around without their knowledge, permanently separated from normal human lives.

A short, fun little book (and series).
