“Ms. Fang is the nicest, sweetest teacher at Scary School. She only ate twelve kids last year.”  


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"
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
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

*****************
Scary School was a hilarious story filled with a mix of fantastic characters that I have grown to love.

Charles "New Kid" Nukid is in for a big surprise when he starts at Scary School. This school is no ordinary place. Its filled with Vampires, ghosts, a T-Rex and a mix of many other scary creatures. Scary School has a mix of short stories with an underlying main story. Oh, and did I mention its narrated by an eleven year old ghost named Derek! I really loved this book. Although it is a mid-grade book, It had me laughing out loud throughout the entire thing. The characters are so interesting and I very much enjoyed getting to know each of them.

Scary School also has a ton of great illustrations done by Scott M. Fisher. They are done very well and it was great to get a visual of each character. It totally added to the book!

Overall I give Scary School 4+ Hoots! A very original story with a great mix of characters and a great fun read. I loved the humor in this book and all the great pictures. If your looking for a fun book to read or something for your kids, This is the book for you! Look out for the sequel to Scary School, Monsters on the Marsh. Due to release June 26th, 2012!
