School Library Journal Review

Gr 5-8‘A gripping sequel to Terror at the Zoo and Horror at the Haunted House (both Cobblehill, 1992). Ellen and her little brother Corey both go to a fair, but separately with their own friends. Ellen is made a bit uneasy by a fortune-teller's cryptic warning, but doesn't realize that her sibling is in trouble, or that he is alone (the boy he is with gets sick and goes home). After witnessing a series of pickpocketing incidents, Corey tries to report the thieves, but one of them traps him on the ``River of Fear'' ride and he is knocked unconscious. It's not until later that his family starts to wonder why he hasn't been brought home by his friend's mother. After a phone call clears up the misunderstanding, Ellen, guided by the fortune-teller and her own ESP, fights the robber and rescues her brother. The tension mounts deliciously as readers follow Ellen and Corey through their day. They are likable characters for whom youngsters will feel great sympathy. Lovers of suspense and ESP themes will be satisfied with this novel.‘Anne Connor, Los Angeles Public Library (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
