And the best performance as a skull goes to...

After years of hiding in the Thackery family house, Sid the skeleton is delighted to finally have his moment in the spotlight. He's starring in a high school production of Hamlet. Well, not so much starring in as being a prop. At least part of him has a part - he's using his head to play Yorick of "Alas, poor Yorick" fame. Every day, Georgia Thackery's daughter, Madison, who's also in the play, brings in his skull, and every night, she takes him home....

Until one night when he's accidentally left at school - and hears the sounds of someone being murdered. But the next day, there's no body and no one seems to be missing.

Sid is not a numbskull - he knows what he heard. Georgia thinks he imagined it - until a week later when a body is found. Now Georgia and Sid will both need to keep their heads as they stick their necks out and play sleuth to catch the conscience of a killer....
