Meg Mackintosh and the Mystery at Camp Creepy: A Solve-It-Yourself Mystery (Meg Mackintosh Mystery series)

While attending summer camp for the first time, Meg tries to solve the mystery of the camp's legendary ghost. The reader is challenged to interpret each clue before Meg finds the solution.

From School Library Journal
In the fourth book in the series, Meg is at camp for the first time. When the story of a legendary camp ghost is told at the campfire, a mysterious noise emanates from the canoe shack and the campers set out to investigate. Text and picture clues are given to Meg and to readers as the mystery is gradually solved. The book is reminiscent of Sobol's "Encyclopedia Brown" series (Lodestar) in its ability to make readers feel like failed sleuths, but it is for younger children and is more like a puzzle or a treasure hunt than a crime. The illustrations are crude pen-and-ink sketches. The book has no discernible literary merit, but game-playing mystery fans might enjoy it. --Carolyn Jenks, Oyster River Elementary School, Durham, NH
