Malcolm's dad thinks it's time Malcolm and his best friend Dandy get out of the basement lab and started doing the things that other 10-year-old boys enjoy. So, they are going camping--in October! The best part of camping at Lake Itchyburr is the Legend of Wild Willy Wallace. The Ghost Detectors are ready to face the smelly, ghostly outlaw--it's a good thing Malcolm brought the specter detector and ghost zapper along! Book 5 in the series.
It's time again for the Franklin County Fair! Malcolm and Dandy can't wait to ride the rides and eat the fair food, even if they have to watch Malcolm's sister, Cocoa, compete for Fair Queen. But something strange is going on in the Screaming Mansion. When the carnival worker, Gus, dares them to enter, they discover more than just a stray cat. The Ghost Detectors never get time off! Book 4 in the series.
Malcolm and his best friend Dandy aren't like other 10-year-old boys. Malcolm would rather avoid his older sister, experiment in his lab, and read his science magazines than play sports. In one magazine, he comes across an advertisement for an Ecto-Handheld-Automatic-Heat-Sensitive-Laser-Enhanced Specter Detector. Its arrival is the beginning of the boys' new career as Ghost Detectors when they discover a practical-joking poltergeist! Book 1 in the series
