Gr. 3-5. Magic and the supernatural continue to haunt twins Jennifer and Peter and their little sister, Molly, in this volume in the Tartan Magic series. This time the twins find adventure in a graveyard haunted by the ghost of a young woman, Mary MacFadden, who was thwarted in her love for Ewan McGregor by her powerful twin, Andrew. Now, centuries later, Andrew's power still keeps the lovers apart. When Jennifer and Peter visit the graveyard, Peter becomes possessed by Andrew's angry, vengeful spirit. That leaves Jennifer, the children's grandparents (actually older cousins, both knowledgeable in the supernatural), and assorted magical animals--among them a dog who provides comic relief as well as a hefty taste of Scottish dialect--to free him from the ghost's power and reunite the phantom lovers. The book stands alone, but children may be curious about references to evil sorcerer Michael Scot. Passages of this book beg to be read aloud with the appropriate accent; there's a useful glossary but no pronunciation guides. Suggest books in the series to children deterred by the length of Harry Potter's adventures. ((Reviewed April 15, 2002)) Copyright 2002 Booklist Reviews
