Review: Scary School by Derek the Ghost
IN A GLANCE: Scary School is a tremendous story about a school filled with all sorts of creatures. Not sure I'd want to actually go to school like this, but I jumped up and down when I got this book in the mail and its for middle grade kids. I mean seriously check this cover out. Why wouldn't anyone not love this cover?

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"
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
Would you want to go to a school with all these crazy creatures, or where you could get your hand bit off just for sitting it down in the wrong place?
Well that is what our main character in this spooky and funny book had to do. As soon as I got this book, I knew I had to read it ASAP! The cover drew me right into the world where such a school could exist. I adored all the cast of crazy characters. There are so many of them, but my favorite would have to defiantly have to be Penny. She is amazing at playing dead!
I haven't laughed so hard at a book in a long time and I loved reading every word of it. Scary School is perfectly written and I would have begged for a book like this when I was a kid. Its one of those books you have to read to believe and also one you will never forget once you've read it!
