    1. YA book - an old one but a good one- that's why it's still in print great adventure ARRh This was a re-read. A very used copy is in my permanent library.

    2. THE GHOST IN THE NOON DAY SUN Sid Fleischman “Have Treasure-Need Kid Bait"This is a light read for kids—no real meat for adults here--but good fun, with surprise twists one very other page—even on the Same page! Fourteen-year-old Oliver Finch dreams of going to sea, instead of helping his aunt at her New England inn. Fortunately for him the sudden arrival f one Captain Scratch (easily the devil’s agent or human kin) ends Oliver’s landlubber life. Back then superstitious folks believe [...]

    3. I'm a big Sid Fleischman fan. I love his verve, his wit, his complications, his plucky characters. The Ghost in the Noonday Sun had all that, but perhaps in a lesser quantity than I had hoped. The lad Oliver is told that he should have to ability to see ghosts even in daylight. For that reason, he is swiped by pirates to find the ghost of the guardian of a buried treasure. We never meet a ghost, but all the Treasure Island crew seems to show up in one guise or another. I had a blast reading this [...]

    4. j'ai lu ce livre en français,Le jour de ses quatorze ans, oliver est kidnappé par un capitaine pirate et le voila en route pour les îles des mers du Sud ! Mais pourquoi a-t-il été enlevé ? A la recherche du trésor de Gentleman Jack, le capitaine Scratch a besoin de quelqu'un d'exceptionnel pour le guider dans sa quête. Quelqu'un qui soit né sous les coups de minuit, comme Oliver. Car on dit que les personnes nées à minuit ont la capacité de voir les fantômes. Or le seul moyen de tro [...]

    5. This book was a lot of fun, probably one of my favorite juvy books I've read lately. I didn't think I was into pirate stories, but this one had the perfect mix of adventure, humor, and plot twists. It's not really much of a ghost story, so the title is a bit misleading, but if I say more it will give away too much. I especially recommend this book for boys but I am going to check out the audio book again for a family car trip because I think my girls and Ismael will like it too.

    6. Great fun; a change from Fleischman's other books written at that time, set in the U.S. mainland/Southwest, such as Jingo Django, By the Great Horn Spoon and Mr. Mysterious. This book is all pirates in the Caribbean, with a good dollop of treachery and finding that good people aren't always the ones who seem nicest.

    7. A lot of fun. Sort of an easier-to-read version of Treasure Island, but with Sid Fleischman's characteristic twists and surprises, vivid dialog and characters. Not my favorite of Fleischman's books, but still enjoyable.

    8. I loved this book so much when I was a kid. It was only when I grew up that I realized it's a hybrid ripoff of Treasure Island and Kidnapped. :)

    9. I read this story earlier and have just reread it. It is a hilarious childrens book about a boy who is supposed to be able to see ghosts

    10. This is a children's book, but it is one of my favorites. I have re-read it a couple of times, and it is just as good even now that I'm old and hardened.
