Publisher's Summary

A doll that may be haunted leads three friends on a thrilling adventure in this delightfully creepy novel from the New York Times best-selling cocreator of the Spiderwick Chronicles.

Zach, Poppy, and Alice have been friends forever. And for almost as long, they’ve been playing one continuous, ever-changing game of pirates and thieves, mermaids and warriors. Ruling over all is the Great Queen, a bone-china doll cursing those who displease her. But they are in middle school now. Zach’s father pushes him to give up make-believe, and Zach quits the game. Their friendship might be over, until Poppy declares she’s been having dreams about the Queen - and the ghost of a girl who will not rest until the bone-china doll is buried in her empty grave.

Zach and Alice and Poppy set off on one last adventure to lay the Queen’s ghost to rest. But nothing goes according to plan, and as their adventure turns into an epic journey, creepy things begin to happen. Is the doll just a doll or something more sinister? And if there really is a ghost, will it let them go now that it has them in its clutches?

Kinda creepy, very fun

Perfect middle grade balance of friendship, ghost tale, adventure and reality. As always, Black hits the right notes in her characters dialog and relationships.

Great way to spend time with my daughter.

Scary yet beautiful story

My expectations were met

I didn't really like the narrator because he was kinda phony. Thanks!😎

enjoyed listening to it.

I wanted to give it a listen as it was one I was thinking of using for a literature circle book for class. I will use it for junior grades, but don't think it is suited for intermediate. I really did enjoy listening to it and thought the storyline to be very interesting.

Great book!

My daughter and I enjoyed reading along to this book. Great story! A bit frightening but bearable. I recommend this book if you are looking for something to read and lose yourself in the pages.

Good and sweet book, but...

I loved this book! But the beginning could be better. I read this book for school and I was so bored at the beginning that I didn’t start it until a couple weeks before school. But then it got more and more interesting and I got hooked! All and all it would be 4.5

Was hoping for better

I came to this book from a recommended list of good Middle Grade horror books. While the character development was strong, the book was low on any real sense of creepiness. More of a straightforward coming of age tale really
