EXCELLENT!!! My 7yr old, advanced but very reluctant reader, son LOVED this book. He snatched it out of my hands and read it in one sitting as soon as it arrived. When he finished he declared that the story was "EPIC". I have the first two Eerie Elementary books to thank for getting my son past his hangup with "too many words" in a book. These were the first books that I didn’t have to force him to read. The stories are exciting, engaging, a little silly, and not predictable. The illustrations are lively and enhance the story. My only complaint is that there aren’t more books in the series! Check it out!
Review Praise for Eerie Elementary #1:”The plot and twisted storyline will serve the beginning chapter book reader well. Word choice, action, and crisp sketches support the story, allowing early readers to develop ideas and easily follow the plot.” — Library Media Connection”Give this early chapter book to readers who want something scary but aren’t ready for the ‘Goosebumps’ or ‘Scream Street’ series.” — School Library Journal”Dynamic, cartoonish illustrations amp up the action, and fun onomatopoeia provides atmosphere….Readers who relish the action of Dav Pilkey’s Ricky Ricotta series and the just-beyond-safe scares of R.L. Stine’s Rotten School titles may want to enroll at Eerie Elementary.” — Booklist”Chabert hits just the right horror note for transitional readers, with thrills that include a dash of absurd humor and fall tactfully short of being truly frightening….Simple sentence structure, some repetitive (but not tedious) vocabulary and a direct storytelling style make this a worthy and creepy addition to the Branches series, and the scary story aspect will likely pull in a few reluctant readers. Ricks’ illustrations add an appropriately gloomy but playful touch.” — Bulletin of the Center for Children’s BooksPraise for Eerie Elementary #2:”Plenty of action words and direct sentences make this suitable for emerging readers….it will be a good fit for readers not quite ready for Lovecraft Middle School or Goosebumps.” — Booklist
Recess Is a Jungle!: A Branches Book (Eerie Elementary #3) Paperback – January 5, 2016 by Jack Chabert (Author) Review
LOVE! LOVE! LOVE! This is an excellent series of books! Wish there was more books in the series! My nine-year-old son just loves them I was so excited to get this in the mail today!!! I am sure he will not disappoint! -Read Reviews-
My son is 7 and in second grade and he loves this series. They are specifically part of a scholastic series designed to get young readers engaged and excited about reading. My son gobbles these up. They have more action so kids do not get bored. I highly recommend these books (there are only three so far) and other books that are part of the Scholastic Branches series.
