Want to encourage scientific awareness in children and have them see it as challenging, interesting, and just plain fun? Nickell presents thirty brief mystery stories with clues embedded in each story. At the end of each mystery, the reader can turn the book upside down and see if they have come to the same conclusion reached by the professional ‘magic detectives.’ Included are examinations of the ‘mummy’s curse’, bigfoot, haunted stairways, walking on fire, ancient astronauts, the Reverend Peter Popoff, the Amityville Horror, the Loch Ness monster, poltergeists, and more.

Joe Nickell has been called “the modern Sherlock Holmes.” Since 1995 he has been the world’s only full-time, professional, science-based paranormal investigator. His careful, often innovative investigations have won him international respect in a field charged with controversy.
