GHOST IN THE CAPITOL

Written by Idella Bodie,

Illustrated by Gay Kovach


A Civil War legend, an enchanted lock of hair, and a black cat named Beelzebub convince three youngsters on a  class tour of the South Carolina State House  to risk a ghost hunt.  The hunt turns into a fun-filled adventure when the kids secretly identify, locate and exorcise the ghost.

     

 Ghost in the Capitol combines intrigue with historical fact to present to young readers a mystery steeped in South Carolina traditions.  The architecture and construction of the State House, historical monuments to the state's heroes and statesmen, and the burning of Columbia are but a few of the historical details intertwined with the mystery plot.
