The Haunted House Next Door by Andres Miedoso, Victor Rivas

They are moving to Kersville this time.  It seems his parents move once a year.  They're top secret scientists and they want to keep their research safe.  That's great, but he's getting tired of trying to make new friends.  When they pull in, his mom sends him over to the house next door where there is a boy his age...

Little Simon and Edelweiss gave me the opportunity to read this book for review (thank you).  It has been published and you can grab a copy now.

Desmond is a ghost hunter.  Andres can't think he has much business in that line but he's a friendly enough kid.  He decides to be friends with him.

Strange things begin to happen at their new home.  As they put their furniture in place and their clothes and dishes away, he can turn and see total chaos in the room they just finished.  Before he can get his dad or mom to see it, it returns to where it should be.

Desmond gets his ghost detector and goes to work.  Sure enough, there's a ghost messing with Andres.  They solve the problem together and all is well.

This is fun quick read for intermediate readers.  The illustrations are fun, too.  Peek at it, I bet you buy it.
