Treasure in the Graveyard

Treasure in the Graveyard
by Roberto Pavanello
North Mankato, Minn. : Stone Arch Books, 2012.
120 pages. Intermediate Chapter Book.
From the series Echo and the Batpack. the publisher says this series need not be read in a particular order, but this one does serve well as #1.
Echo is a very educated bat who once lived in a library. He now resides in an old crypt at the cemetery. One night as he is trying to write a story he is disrupted by a commotion nearby. An intruder was in the graveyard digging up graves. And to make matters worse he as accompanied by a large scary raven. Echo, being a bit of a scaredy-bat, took flight. Luckily he stumbled and crashed his way into the Silver home where the three kids took care of him. They even helped him solve the mystery of why the stranger was digging in the cemetery. This is a very fun and entertaining little mystery for 1st-3rd graders, with just a light touch of spooky.
