9780006919216: The Mystery of the Talking Skull (Alfred Hitchcock and the Three Investigators)

It all started with a dollar. One dollar paid at auction by Jupiter Jones for a dusty old trunk that once belonged to The Great Gulliver, a magician who vanished as mysteriously as one of his tricks. The trunk attracts a host of bizarre characters, like Zelda the Gypsy, Three-Finger Munger, and Maximilian the Mystic. But what's inside the trunk is even more bizarre--a skull that talks!

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

The Three Investigators were the new owners of a talking skull named Socrates.  At least, it was supposed to be able to talk.  But the boys hadn't been able to get a sound out of it.

"What a gyp!" said Pete.

"Maybe it just isn't in a talking mood," answered Jupiter, and the boys turned their backs on the skull.

Suddenly there was a muffled sneeze behind them.  Whirling around, they saw no one there--no one, that is, but the skull.

Socrates had sneezed!
