Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

During a stormy night at Camp Dakota, the young campers learn about sound and thunderstorms. When Braelin and Megan wander away from everyone else at the lake shore and take shelter from more rain, they hear ghostly sounds, but are they hearing ghosts or something else? While readers might pick up this entry in the Summer Camp Science Mysteries series for the fun story and Torres’ appealing artwork, they’ll also learn quite a bit about sound and might be inspired to try some of the easy experiments at the back of the book. Grades 2-4. --Kat Kan

Lightning bolts lit up the sky as rain poured down around Camp Dakota. Jordan was ready to head out to eat, but Braelin hid under the bed. No way he was going to venture out in that storm. Jordan tried to reassure him that it would be fine because the lighting wasn't close. He thought about it and said, "I think there's a way you can tell, by counting the seconds between the flash and the sound." Kyle, a camp counselor, came to hustle them off to the camp cafeteria and then gave them the formula for figuring out just how far away that lightning was. By using his calculations there wouldn't be a problem. Once everyone worked through them they knew the storm was more than a mile away. The sound of thunder really got to Braelin, but the sound of something else was getting to some of the other campers. It was the Lake Ghosts.

Everyone started to debate whether or not the ghosts were "real," but no doubt there was something strange going on down by the water. It was time to wrap up their dinner and Kyle got them off the subject of ghosts as he began instructing them. This time the campers would learn how to make a flute. Loraine wanted to know just how the flute worked. Kyle explained to her that "The air vibrates inside the flute, which makes a sound covering the holes where vibrating air comes out." After they made their flutes the campers headed out to sit by a log near the lake to practice. There was a lot of noise from the flutes, but suddenly a strange sound began to come from the lake. "Mmrmur mmrmur." It had to be the Lake Ghosts, but if they were real, how would the Camp Dakota campers find them?

This is a fascinating mystery that will intrigue young science detectives.
