Overall not a bad ghost story with some fun characters (particularly Chief Copegog). It's been a while since I've read a novel written in the first person, and in this case I found there were a lot of irrelevant passages (telling us what each character is wearing in every scene, for instance). The book is set in a real location (Orillia, Ontario) and delves into some historical background so it's interesting from that aspect as well.

Read this in 7th grade and adored it. Finally found a copy after all these years. Let's hope it's as good as I remember :P

A spooky ghost story set in Orillia. There's a bit of local history and several scary (and not so scary)ghosts.

One of my favourite childhood stories. I still get ghostbumps just thinking about it.
