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

My Review:
Great illustrations with an active imagination make this a very delightful book from start to finish. The story was easy to read and I found myself getting caught up in the Scary School world for a short time. The characters were the type that either you loved them or loved to hate them. I think that every child or even adult has thought up a world similar to this at least once in their lives, I know I have on occasion.

Final Thoughts:
I highly recommend this first installment in the Scary School series. Make sure to check it out and the latest book Monsters on the March.
