The Wrath of the Grinning Ghost
On a trip to Florida with his father, Johnny Dixon visits a fortuneteller, and receives an eerie premonition. Inside the crystal ball Johnny sees a ghost-white face with long white hair and black eyes like puddles of oil, which screams, ìThe universe shall be mine!î Back home, Johnnyís father falls unconscious, gravely ill in a way the doctors canít understand. Johnny and his friend Professor Childermass investigate and soon realize that the spirit of Nyarlat-Hotep wants to use Major Dixonís body to destroy the world. To stop this fearsome demon, Johnny and the professor must join forces with Brewster, an otherworldly falcon, and fight Nyarlat-Hotep in its own, unearthly realm. Can they locate an ancient book and defeat their deepest fears in time, or is Johnnyís father lost and our world doomed forever? Readers will shiver at the multiple worlds of suspense in this twelfth book in the Johnny Dixon series. ìEerie, suspenseful, and true to the style of Bellairs.î óBooklist
