REVIEW OF SCARY SCHOOL BY DEREK THE GHOST


Title: Scary School (Book 1)
Author: Derek the Ghost
Release date: June 21, 2011.
Published by: Harper Collins
Reading level:  8 and Up.



 


About the Book:

DO YOU THINK YOUR SCHOOL IS SCARY?

Get a load of these teachers:
Ms. Fang, an 850-year-old vampire. Dr. Dragonbreath, who just might eat you before recess. Mr. Snakeskin—science class is so much more fun when it's taught by someone who's half zombie. Mrs. T—break the rules and spend your detention with a hungry Tyrannosaurus rex!
Plus
Gargoyles, goblins, and Frankenstein's monster on the loose.
The world's most frighteningly delicious school lunch.
And
The narrator's an eleven-year-old ghost!






My Thoughts:
The book was very cleaver, funny, and perfect for a kid (or a kid at heart). Derek the Ghost AKA Derek Taylor Kent has written a fantastic book that includes a cast of characters that bring out the kid in everyone. I particularly liked Peter the Wolf and Penny Possum but everyone of the characters was unique and entertaining. Throughout the book, there were lessons being taught about friendships and life in general. I have always enjoyed books about vampires, monsters and other supernatural beings but I have never read a book like Scary School. Even the website is interesting and if you pass a quiz written by Mrs. fang you can unlock a secret chapter of the book. The illustrations included in the book were great and complemented the storyline. I wonder what Derek has in store for us in the next book of the series to be released in June 2012



Disclaimer: I received a free copy of the book for my honest review and I was not compensated for my review.
