JOHN BELLAIR'S LEWIS BARNAVELT
IN THE WHISTLE, THE GRAVE, AND THE GHOST
New York : Dial Books for
Young Readers, 2003.
IL 5-8, RL 5.4
Barnavelt is a Boy Scout, a former altar boy, an orphan, and no stranger
to mystery. Fortunately, he lives with his Uncle Jonathan who happens
to be a wizard. While on a Boy Scout Camping trip, Lewis discovers
an old tomb with the inscription "Hic Iacet Lamia". Fortunately,
Lewis knows some Latin and knows that "Hic Iacet" means "here lies".
Near the tomb, Lewis finds a silver whistle buried in the dirt. What
happens when Lewis blows the whistle? What is a "Lamia"? Can
Lewis rely on Uncle Jonathan, Father Foley, and his friends for help?
Solve the mystery for yourself. Read The Whistle, the Grave and
the Ghost. (New
