Read full description of the books:



"The wind is howling and through the door comes Captain Scratch, a villain if I ever saw one." So begins the adventures of Young Oliver Finch, born at the stroke of midnight. "Aye, there's a wondrous power in it," says Captain Scratch, believing that the midnight-born can spy out ghosts. Shanghaied aboard the captain's ship, Bloody Hand, Oliver sails the high seas in pursuit of the ghost of Gentleman Jack, who paces his grave where pirate treasure lies buried. "You'll be me eyes, boy!" Once Oliver spots the vaporous gent, Captain Scratch and his crew of cutthroats will know where to dig for the long-lost treasure.

Oliver is determined to outfox the crafty captain despite a shipwreck, the night of the dredgies when sea ghosts climb aboard, and "other events too horrible to mention." It's a tale of treachery, intrigue, and suspense, written with gusto by the Newbery Medalist.

Read information about the author

Ebook The Ghost in the Noonday Sun read Online! As a children's book author Sid Fleischman felt a special obligation to his readers. "The books we enjoy as children stay with us forever -- they have a special impact. Paragraph after paragraph and page after page, the author must deliver his or her best work." With almost 60 books to his credit, some of which have been made into motion pictures, Sid Fleischman can be assured that his work will make a special impact.

Sid Fleischman wrote his books at a huge table cluttered with projects: story ideas, library books, research, letters, notes, pens, pencils, and a computer. He lived in an old-fashioned, two-story house full of creaks and character, and enjoys hearing the sound of the nearby Pacific Ocean.

Fleischman passed away after a battle with cancer on March 17, 2010, the day after his ninetieth birthday.

He was the father of Newbery Medal winning writer and poet Paul Fleischman, author of Joyful Noise; they are the only father and son to receive Newbery awards.
