Preview of Blossom Culp and the Sleep of Death Summary:

Peck has spun an entertaining yarn in Blossom Culp and the Sleep of Death.

Adding an element of suspense to his comedy of manners about small town, USA, the ghost story links socially outcast Blossom Culp with handsome and wealthy Alexander Armsworth. Together these two freshmen, blessed with psychic powers, must find the missing mummy of a 3,500-year-old Egyptian princess and return it to her tomb, or face an ancient curse.

Humor, sometimes slapstick, plays an important part in the story. Coupled with Peck's gift of creating strong diverse characters and adroit plotting, the story moves quickly and culminates in a satisfactory ending. Underlying the suspense and humor in this fourth of the Blossom Culp series is the story of growing up in a small town and learning to think for oneself instead of being one of a group.
