Storyline

Alexander Armsworth and his family move to an authentic antibellum mansion, which once was owned by a river pirate. Alexander is drawn into a century-old mystery when he sees the ghost of a little girl, and she asks for his help in finding the "child of glass" by reciting a riddle. He has only a day or two to solve the riddle, or be haunted for the rest of his life! Written by Marta Dawes <smdawes@home.com>

Trivia

While most of the setting is authentic, the production company could not find a suitable crypt in the Danville, Kentucky cemetary, so the climactic sequence was shot in a fake tomb constructed in the actual graveyard. The phony mausoleum became a local attraction after the film aired. See more »

Blossom Culp: You mean we ain't gonna be haunted no more?

Excellent and Fun Family Movie
17 February 2000 | by (Las Vegas, Nevada) – See all my reviews

I must say that this was a very enjoyable movie and would recommend it for the whole family.

Here is a ghost story that builds on the idea that trust is a good thing and even though you may reside in different worlds you can still bond with each other and help in a time of need.

A modern boy keeps seeing a ghost girl, about his same age, and discovers that the little girl cannot rest in peace until she solves a riddle. Even though it may be dangerous and the little boy will end up losing the ghost girl as a friend if he succeeds in solving the it he agrees to help. He gets help from a new neighbor friend who is also the same age and their off to the races. They have only until holloween to solve the riddle of "The Child of Glass"
