   Good book but beware: scary for kids!!!
The book is great but too scary for my 6 and 4 year olds who love chapter books. We've done notebook of doom series without any issues but just this one book and neither would go to sleep for days after because they were so scared and ended up in bed with us! A good friend of mine suggested that we try something new.
   Kids love it!
Each week I read to 4th graders at my local school. They are exciting, lots of action, written through the eyes of an elementary school kid, and are pretty quick reads, too.
   Great book
The book was a hit with my students. That really affects the companies, big time. The school has about 60 students, most of whom are fifth graders. For many, reading has been a struggle. It was a great story, told with great imagination, the fourth grader said. I would say that this book would be great for second or third grade readers, said Axel Schachter, Scholastic's executive vice president. It's a little spooky so if you work at a Christian school or have students whose families would object to a school which is alive, or if you are a parent who doesn't want your child reading about creepy things, buy some other book. There is nothing wrong with the book, Rowling said. Our school is still alive, said the principal. The agency wants the children back.
   Great 1st chapter book
I'm not ashamed to say that I picked up this book from my son. My son likes scary stories, so i started looking for them, and i found this one. After reading the first three, i decided to read four more chapters. And when we finished the book, he said, "Mom, I've fallen in love with that book." Yes, I will be getting the second book in the series, "The Second Book," written by Simon & Schuster.
   Such a Cute Series
My son who is turning 9 months old in August loved the show. I think he'll do well in school, said the boy's teacher, who called him "an excellent reader." I thought that these books would be too easy for him, but he loved the stories, charterers and story line! We would read together, sometimes he would read alone, but he would finish in one sitting. This was his first exposure to scary stories, but the author did it in a way that made it seem like fun, not scary, he said.
   Good for struggling readers
My son has really struggled with reading and math. It's a chapter book, so he avoids the stigma of not reading chapter books. It also gives him good places to take a break and then start again, making reading fun for my son and not a chore.
   Awesome first chapter book!
I absolutely love this book, especially the picture book. He's really into it, said Blair. Very interesting and appropriate age story, Max. A great series of books for this age range.
   I loved it, especially how well written it was
I've read the book, and I'm in awe at how well written it is. Our 7 year old grandson couldn't put it down, which is saying a lot because he normally has only two speeds 150 mph or totally asleep, but these books keep him in one place and totally focused, Weinshall said.
   Great 1st chapter book
The level 2 readers were too easy and a little boring for her, said her mom. Instead of moving her up to level 3, I wanted something that wasn't too difficult and that was exciting so she would actually like reading, and this book is perfect! The first day, she read 20 pages without me even having to tell her to keep reading. She's obsessed with goosebumps, even though she hasn't read them and can't watch the shows yet because they were too scary when we tried. The story is fast-paced and the pacing of the exchanges between the two women was also fast.
   Undercover hall monitor books
A lot of good things have happened with this series, too, Tip said. The series is simple and good way to get young readers involved in a chapter book, he said. We just got the newest book in the mail and we are still loving it! The books are relatively easy to read with only a few sentences on each page, so the reader doesn't get discouraged with pages and pages of words.
