Kids will love this exciting new book The Ghost Hunters of Kurseong, a racy fast paced Who-dunnit, that keeps one turning the pages.
Who, or, what are the ghosts? Are they for real? If not, how or why would someone want to scare the people of the town? What dastardly motives could they have?
Kartik Godse who has reluctantly moved to Kurseong, near Darjeeling, with his mother who has a new job as a tea-taster, is soon thrown headlong into the sporadic appearances of ghosts who dwell in an old and dilapidated bungalow - Iyer House.
He decides to investigate the appearances and is joined in this scary venture by his newly found friends – Opus, a plucky girl and Tashi, a puny-sized boy whiz, who makes robots in his spare time (one wishes that the story could have one of his creations getting into the action).
Being rational kids, they quickly rise over the primeval fear of the supernatural and set off to unearth the mystery that lays behind the ghost hauntings.
Even though, the story moves at a clipping pace, the author, still manages to gently sqeeze in some important messages – namely, not to be carried away by superstition, and more important the dangers of gambling and how addicting it could become.
Interesting, funny, and action-packed from the word go, this book is a great read!
