Product Description

Product Description

In this, the second book in the Johnny Dixon mystery series, Johnny must find the lost will of Mr. H. Bagwell Glomus, a man of great fortune and sinister witchcraft. Mr. Glomus’s widow is offering a $10,000 reward to anyone who finds its hiding place, enough money to help Johnny’s grandmother get the operation she needs. So, Johnny will stop at nothing to find the will.

With his neighbor, Professor Childermass, and his new friend Fergie, Johnny won’t rest until he solves the puzzle. From Boy Scout camp to hotel windows to underground passageways, Johnny races to find the right clues, all the while with the supernatural nipping at his heels…

“The pace is fast and the suspense is compelling. Readers will find themselves quickly caught up.” —Booklist
“Marvelous surprises for everyone except the villians.” —Publishers Weekly

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 24 Jun 1998
By A Customer
It was a really good idea of the author's to introduce the character of Fergie. He adds a lot of humor to the series. I also like all the strange little facts that Fergie knows.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Book 29 Nov 2001
By Sarah - Published on
I read this book when I was in third grade. Here I am, about to go to law school, and I still remember the details. The story keeps you hanging on the whole length of the book. I would recommend this book for anyone who loves a good mystery, loves to be held in suspense, and who can handle staying up late, because you won't want to put it down.

4.0 out of 5 stars excellent book but pretty dark themes for a kid 25 Mar 2004
By Keneri - Published on
I loved this entire series when I was a kid and read them all repeatedly. There is no question that the author is talented... the plots are facinating and the characters are vivid and sympathetic. This series is sure to catch the imagination of any child that is interested in mystery or the supernatural.
One caveat, however: these books are pretty dark. There's a lot of evil and anger portrayed, and I'm not sure if that's the sort of thing a child should be dwelling on. The protagonists are healthy role models and their intentions are good, but the book paints a pretty dark and scary picture of the rest of the world.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a story!!!!!! 13 Dec 2004
A Kid's Review - Published on
This story by John Bellairs has a suspensing and mysterious plot. Johhny Dixon's persistence and determination won him 10,000 dollars. Although he is smart enough to figure out Mr. Glomus's riddle and will, he would also have to escape from a mummy to get the will. I would recommend this book to everyone because this story could inspire many people to go out on their own and have their own adventures. Although he wanted to find the will for the 10,000 dollars, he wanted it to save his grandma. This shows that he is not greedy.

5.0 out of 5 stars A true mystery that can be enjoyed by all ages... 21 Sep 2000
By A Customer - Published on
This is an excellent book for all ages. It is a great mystery! The story captures your attention right from the beginning. It's incredibly easy to fall in love with the characters as soon as you open the book. A lot of children who read this book might be able to relate with Johnny Dixon (the main character in the book). Some kids have trouble making friends and Johnny is a boy who feels like an outcast. He never really fits in anywhere. He does, however, befriend an old professor who helps him with his many trials and tribulations through out the story. Johnny gets himself wrapped up in what everyone believes is a story and in the end he proves everyone wrong. He unravels a difficult suicide case and runs into a few ghosts along the way. In this story the boy conquers many fears and makes his close friends and family very proud. He is the hero of the story. Aside from all of Johnny's self-discoveries there is a really great mystery that keeps you on the edge of your seat just waiting to turn the page. I read this book in third grade, but I would really recommend this to anyone. Again, it's an amazing book. I urge you to read it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Amy's View: The Mummy, the Will & the Crypt 5 Jun 2001
A Kid's Review - Published on
I liked this book very much because I like reading mysteries. What made it good? First, it kept my interest because it was very exciting. I was very eager to know what happened next. I liked learning about the characters. Their lives were very exciting. Finally, the last 3 chapters were very freaky! Johnny, the main character, was sneaking into the Glomus mansion and he kept hearing weird noises. I would recommend this book to any kids over 7 years of age.
