Back Blurb:

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
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!

My Review:

This book is something that all kids in school of all ages should read. It has some very valuable lessons that a lot of people should know about and it also gives you a sense of thankfulness for how dull your school really is.

Scary School:
-makes you appreciate you normal everyday life a little more
-makes you appreciate your classmates a little more (even if they do bully you and torment you relentlessly)
-makes you appreciate your everyday teacher a lot more (even if he or she does pick their nose from time to time at least they don't eat you!)
-gives a whole new sense of the word 'ghost writer
-shows the real meaning of popular people (i had to throw that in because they way Derek the Ghost explains is really and honestly true)

Scary School is a book that kids of all ages will enjoy. It did seem a little more explanatory than necessary if you look in depth to this book you'll see a lot of lessons that need to be learned by children now. There were so many little thing lying just under the surface of the book that if you looked really hard you could pick up. I
really enjoyed the form of 'ghost writing' it was really funny. Oh, and speaking of funny, if you love to laugh......pick this book up okay? It is pretty humorous. :-) I'm very excited to read the next one.

PS--we all know how much of a bookworm my brother is (ha) well, he grabbed this book before I could and read it for 2 days straight. (meaning, he loved it because my brother, sadly, is not a reader and if he reads a book nonstop for 2 days then you know how good that book is)
