Scary School Review
Reading Level:Middle Grade
First book in Scary School series
You think your school's 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"
Gargoyles, goblins, and Frankenstein's monster on the loose
The world's most frighteningly delicious school lunch
The narrator's an eleven-year-old ghost
Join Charles "New Kid" Nukid as he makes some very Scary friends--including Petunia, Johnny, and Peter the Wolf--and figures out that Scary School can be just as funny as it is spooky
This was seriously the most hilarious book ever. It wasn't what I was expecting at all. At first I wasn't sure how I was gonna feel about this. It's middle grade. I rarely read middle grade. But I'm very glad I got a chance to read this. The storyline was fast paced and very unique . The characters were super cute and the pictures were great. When I first saw that there were pictures I thought that this book wasn't' for me. In the end I wanted to go find a ton of kids and read it together. The whole time I was reading I was giggling like an idiot. This story is told by Derek the ghost. Derek takes us on a wild adventure through everyday life at scary school. Right off the bat we meet crazy students and even crazier teachers My favorite students have to be Charles Nukid or Petunia. As for my favorite teacher it's between Ms Fang or Mr Turtlesnap. This is one of those books you don't judge by its cover. It's perfect for middle grade and elementary. But I think anyone could enjoy it. Overall I really enjoyed this and I recommend it to anyone looking for a cute and hilarious book :). 5/5 Stars
