Eerie Elementary: The School is Alive! by Jack Chabert

Eerie Elementary is one scary school!

This series is part of Scholastic's early chapter book line called Branches, which is aimed at newly independent readers. With easy-to-read text, high-interest content, fast-paced plots, and illustrations on every page, these books will boost reading confidence and stamina. Branches books help readers grow!

In this first book in the series, Sam Graves discovers that his elementary school is ALIVE! Sam finds this out on his first day as the school hall monitor. Sam must defend himself and his fellow students against the evil school! Is Sam up to the challenge? He'll find out soon enough: the class play is just around the corner. Sam teams up with friends Lucy and Antonio to stop this scary school before it's too late! (Amazon)

I received this one last week and my 6 year old son and i devoured it in two nights! He is a pretty advanced reader and we are not venturing into more and more chapter books. He loved this one and is eagerly anticipating the second book in the series. It was fun and silly and a little creepy. It was easy to follow, nothing overly complicated. The kids were real, the school seemed like any old average elementary school with the little twist that is was haunted!!! Nothing too scary here though, more silly than anything. Young readers will enjoy this new series.

Happy Reading and as always, thanks for stopping by!
