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?
"Doll Bones" is a winner of the Newbery Honor, is the recipient of
six starred reviews, was on four Best Book lists, and was called
"perfect" by "The New York Times."

Review This Product
An original spooky ghost story

This is an eerie tale. Sporadically illustrated and spooky enough to make my heart rate through the pages.
I loved the original and imaginative game created by the three friends.
