The Three Investigators #21 Haunted Mirror and #22 Dead Man's Riddle
On pages 70 and 71, Mrs. Darnley's grandson, Jeff, wants to go down the stairs to the basement with the Three Investigators as they try to find the phantom. Mrs. Darnley protests, and Jupiter points out, "Mrs. Darnley, the phantom may not be down there. He may be out of the house and away." The phantom may not be down there. How does that mitigate Mrs. Darnley's concern? You get one guess as to whether the phantom was down there. I'm sure you know the answer.
This book is really spooky, and I greatly enjoyed it.
In this book, the boys finally go to school. This book is set in the spring. On page 8, the boys plan to have a meeting before school the next morning. What a relief. I was beginning to worry about the boys' lack of education.
It's actually a bit awkward for the boys to be attending school, since school has not existed in any of the other books.
This is another good story, and I enjoyed it.
