Why I liked this title:

When Samantha (Sam) the sheepdog moves to Woodford she is sure that it is going to be a boring town. When Jennie, her 10-year-old neighbor, becomes her dogwalker, suddenly life gets very interesting for both of them. Jenny realizes that she can hear Sam's thoughts in her head, and she and her friend Beth get drawn into Sam's love of mysteries. It is easy to believe that this could really happen. Does Dracula really live in the house of a hermit named McIver? The clues are there... bats, a spooky house, strange noises, and a bug-eyed creature! Are you brave enough to find out what is in the house?
