This is the second book in the Jed, Bill and Liza series I read as a child. I believe I got the first one in 2nd grade, and I wasn't ready for it. The next year, I saw it on my bookshelf, read it and was then hooked. This was probably purchased as the book fair. Remember those? They came to your school library and had red, blue, yellow and green fold out displays with books to buy. They were awesome. I'm going through and re-reading this series, delighting in the adventures I read over and over ...more
Even worst than the first. Don't know how it managed that!
As a child I remember this was the most popular book in our elementary school library (high-praise indeed!). Now, I'm having a hard time locating a copy for my 7-year-old neice, who I'm sure will love it as much as I did.

I had fond memories of reading this as a child, a mystery book that wasn't actually scary was right up my alley. However, times change and wow does this contain some pretty weird/racist bits about Native Americans.
I bought this at the library sale too. I'm sure when Sam gets around to reading it she'll love it :-)

Just read aloud to Jake. Great mysteries for kids to listen to! Classic Peggy Parish.

I love the Liza, Bill & Jed mysteries. Great for kids!
