My Review: Scary School is a fun book full of scary monsters but isn’t scary at all. The story narrated by Derek The Ghost, is an eleven year old ghost who is unable to leave the school and goes about haunting the classrooms and hallways of ScarySchool.
The school is made up of monsters and humans. Where the students break the rules and the teachers could get away with killing their students (but in a PG way). Like Mrs. T, a Tyrannosaurus in a blue dress who is responsible for detention. If you happen to find yourself in detention you better watch out she might just choose you for her next meal.
Each chapter is dedicated to specific characters like Charles the New Kid, Ms Fang an 850-year-old vampire and many more. The characters are funny, unique and remind me of the Adams Family.
The only thing about the book is that I really didn’t understand why the author would mention something only to say it would be discussed later in other chapter or in the next book. Apart from that the book is funny and entertaining and younger kids will love it. The illustrations on most of the pages help tell the story.
