Publisher's Summary

A doll that may be haunted leads three friends on a thrilling adventure in this delightfully creepy novel from the New York Times best-selling cocreator of the Spiderwick Chronicles.

Zach, Poppy, and Alice have been friends forever. And for almost as long, they’ve been playing one continuous, ever-changing game of pirates and thieves, mermaids and warriors. Ruling over all is the Great Queen, a bone-china doll cursing those who displease her. But they are in middle school now. Zach’s father pushes him to give up make-believe, and Zach quits the game. Their friendship might be over, until Poppy declares she’s been having dreams about the Queen - and the ghost of a girl who will not rest until the bone-china doll is buried in her empty grave.

Zach and Alice and Poppy set off on one last adventure to lay the Queen’s ghost to rest. But nothing goes according to plan, and as their adventure turns into an epic journey, creepy things begin to happen. Is the doll just a doll or something more sinister? And if there really is a ghost, will it let them go now that it has them in its clutches?

enjoyed listening to it.

I wanted to give it a listen as it was one I was thinking of using for a literature circle book for class. I will use it for junior grades, but don't think it is suited for intermediate. I really did enjoy listening to it and thought the storyline to be very interesting.

Kinda creepy, very fun

Perfect middle grade balance of friendship, ghost tale, adventure and reality. As always, Black hits the right notes in her characters dialog and relationships.

Great book!

My daughter and I enjoyed reading along to this book. Great story! A bit frightening but bearable. I recommend this book if you are looking for something to read and lose yourself in the pages.

Doll Bones

I liked Doll Bones. It was very unique and made it hard to sleep at night. The overall performance from audible was pretty good, but there were some parts in the book I was not super impressed by. But overall, I would recommend this book.
