Rated 4 out of 5 by from Agree with below reviewer Agree with all comments made by the reviewer below. This is a good transition book. My only additional comment would be that my 7 year old found it a little scary. But I don't think this wouldn't be of concern for the average child.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect novel for beginner I bought this book for my son when he graduated from picture books. This was a perfect beginner novel! The storyline was interesting and suspenseful, the vocabulary was perfect, and there were just enough illustrations to keep him engaged. A great series for both boys and girls.

Editorial Reviews

Praise for Eerie Elementary #1: The School is Alive!:

"Readers who relish the action of Dav Pilkey's Ricky Ricotta series and the just-beyond-safe scares of R. L. Stine's Rotten School titles may want to enroll at Eerie Elementary." -Booklist

"The large font and frequent illustrations should help new readers gain confidence..." -Kirkus
