Dying to Meet You
43 Old Cemetery Road

by Kate Klise, Illustrated by M. Sarah Klise

2010 Texas Bluebonnet Award NomineeSM

"'The following is a collection of actual letters and documents written over the course of one summer and pertaining to the strange events that took place in a certain house located at 43 Old Cemetery Road in an otherwise quiet town called Ghastly, Illinois." Dying to Meet You

Ignatius B. Grumply has writer's block. This best-selling author has been given an advance on his next book, but he just can't seem to get started on it. Desperate, he corresponds with a real estate agent to try to locate the perfect, quiet house to rent where he can write. Finding what he thinks is the perfect old house, he corresponds with his attorney and signs a rental contract in an town with the inticing name of Ghastly. It doesn't take long to discover that the house isn't deserted! What's a writer to do?

This is a punny ghost story (filled with puns or plays on words) told through a series letters between various characters! The terrific Kids Wings study guide, complete with a Jeopardy-type game is available for immediate download!
