Kids’ Club Review by Kellyann: School of the dead

School of the deadSchool of the dead, by Avi (1937-)

Good book. I kinda like reading creepy stories, but sometimes they get really creepy. For example, ghosts trying to take your soul so that they can live longer. Not that I believe in ghosts, but they still creep me out a bit, especially in bed at night. I’ve only read one or two books creepier than this one.

The Octonauts are a great cross-over from screen to page with their puzzle books and picture books.  Beatrix Potter’s characters also have a to offer, stretching vocabulary in her classic Children’s tales.
