The Chocolate Chip Mystery by John McInnes
Thoughts Before Reading:
Well I thought I would try something new, and start reviewing Children’s books on Wednesday instead of putting them with the regular novels on Tuesdays.
Peppino visits the ice cream store, Max, every day after school. He works with the owner, Max, and also helps care for the dog that choose the ice cream parlor to be its home, Fat Dog.
One day Max becomes disheartened and when Peppino asks, it turns out that the building is going to be destroyed to be a office building. What will Max do?
The postman tells him of a ice-cream store that is for sale and the two go check it out. It turns out to be the Gravely store! Max doesn’t want that it is haunted!!!
He goes to see Mr. Gravely to ask about the store and Mr. Gravely is a tall, skeletal, man dressed as an undertaker! Creepy.
He tells him that his uncle used to run an ice-cream store, but it had to be given up as funny things kept happening. Hmmmmmmm?
They fix the store all up nice, but no one is coming. They think it might be because the story of it being haunted is turning people away.
Then to add to it, the ice-cream is disappearing, only Chocolate Chip though.
Peppino offers to stay and see what might be the cause of it. That night he sees a ghostly figure!
It turns out tat Max is sleep eating! That solves the mystery and problem, but what about the other one?
Peppino comes up with a fantastic idea, to market the parlor as a horror one.

The store is all decorated as Max and Peppino dress up in costumes,. Soon all kinds of people come to visit and all ends well.
