Riddle in the Mountain Hardcover – June 29, 2005

From School Library Journal
Grade 4-8–Kathy's family has just moved to Boulder, CO, and within a week she and her older brother, David, are off hunting ghosts with David's new friend Frank. Instead of ghosts, they encounter a goblinesque figure that leaves them with a riddle to solve. When they depart the cave, they find themselves in the Boulder of 1879–a rough, Old West town of miners. To return home, they must solve the riddle, which refers to a key they must find. Kathy is forced to trade her comfortable jeans for one of the awkward dresses girls wore then, and all three are given piles of chores to do in exchange for food and lodging. They meet, and then lose track of, a psychically gifted Cornish miner who apparently possesses the key they seek. This is a respectable historically based fantasy that promises sequels. The three characters are individuals, and the story moves quickly, but its strongest feature by far is its well-researched look at 19th-century Colorado.–Walter Minkel, New York Public Library
