When the Alden children join a group of volunteers to fix up an old house for senior citizens, they try to explain the puzzling behavior of their coworkers as well as investigate some unusual events.

Excerpt/First Sentence(s):
The Alden house was jumping. Every few minutes, people on the front porch rang the doorbell. And every few minutes on the back porch, the family dog, Watch, whined to come in. The Alden children were in the kitchen baking cookies. Watch didn't want to miss any of the fun - or any of the crumbs, either!

Publisher Book Description:
The Aldens are helping restore an old estate. The house is bursting with the collections of its mysterious and eccentric former owner. As the children explore, they come across hidden rooms, secret passageways, and strange noises coming from the walls. What's the secret of the Bugbee House?
