Is it science...or strange and ghostly?

There’s something very odd about Mr. Maan, the scientist who is helping teach Asim’s class about the moon. He spends a lot of time staring up at the night sky. Sometimes, he almost seems to glow. Asim is sure Mr. Maan is a supernatural being straight out of Guyanese folklore—and the whole town is in danger!

    His friend Rokshar thinks there’s a scientific explanation for everything Mr. Maan does. But she agrees that he’s up to no good. Can Asim and his friends find a way to stop Mr. Maan’s sinister plans?

Find out...if you dare! It's a new spooky series based on ghost stories from Guyana.

Series Overview: Spooky Sleuths is a chapter-book ghost story series featuring monsters from Guyanese folklore. Each book will have concluding notes from Asim and Rokshar about whether the plot can be explained by science or the supernatural as well as an author's note about the Guyanese supernatural being.
