In this sequel to TJ and the Cats, TJ and his best friend Seymour are back, joined by a classmate Amanda. TJ does not believe in ghosts, so when he agrees to create a haunted house in his own home as a fundraiser, he does not anticipate problems, at least not until it turns out that a ghost may inhabit the spare room in his century-old house. The ghost, real or imagined, leads TJ to some fascinating family history. TJ finds a way to bring that history alive for his family. The kittens, offspring of two of the cats from the first book, lead the way.

TJ and the Haunted House is the second of five books in a series.
Book one is TJ and the Cats.
Book three is TJ and the Rockets.
Book four is TJ and the Sports Fanatic.
Book five is TJ and the Quiz Kids.
