The Case of the Haunted Pumpkin
With Halloween one week away, a mystery comes knocking at Samantha Green's door in the form of scary Mrs. Finkel, Briarton's new librarian and suspected witch. When Mrs. Finkel asks for Sam's help to investigate haunting pumpkin deliveries and "noises that vanish," Sam is terrified, but her curious nature just can't resist the challenge. With the help of her best friend, Brian; favorite babysitter, Jenn; and trusty yellow Lab, Murphy, Sam delves into the baffling and downright spooky case. Soon, she is full-tilt into her investigation of the haunting, unexplainable events occurring at Mrs. Finkel's house, from the mounting pile of pumpkins left on her doorstep to menacing notes attempting to run her out of town. As Sam chases the trail of clues, she uncovers yet another mystery--that of Mrs. Finkel herself!
