Ghosts roam among the living on Earth, and it's up to Frank Gallows to go and catch them. However, Frank isn't exactly the best guy for the task - he's lazy and messy and usually eats food in people's fridges after a successful catch. Nevertheless, he still gets the job done. That is, until he accidentally transports his ghost horse AND a human boy named Garth to Ghostopolis. Now, it's up to Frank and his mysterious ex-fiance, Claire, to go back and return Garth to Earth. There's one small problem: Master Vaugner controls Ghostopolis and won't let Garth - a boy who seems to have as much power as himself - go. So, not only does Garth have to get through mummies, zombies, and skeletons alongside his loyal bone-horse, Skinny, but he also has to fight a powerful dark master in order to return to his mother. Doug TenNapel writes an intriguing story about the afterlife and where ghosts come from. His graphic novel is full of eye-catching illustrations and witty jokes that pull the reader in from the first line. GHOSTOPOLIS is recommended for anyone who's up for a quick and fun read; this book won't disappoint.

This novel was very very good. I was hooked on the book after only two pages. It seemed like the more I read the better it got.The artwork is nice and the plot was great.also the book was very entertaining. Someof my favorite parts was when Garth was able to ride the unrideable horse who he called Skinny. I liked it because out of all the people in ghostopolis who lived there for years could never ride the horse.Then Garth,some newbie comes and is able to ride it the first day he comes.Another part I liked was the end when Garth faught vaugner.I like it because a little boy like Garth faught a man twice as old as him and he still won.I was disapointed that Garth had to go throgh all that and be scared just because of some lazy gost hunter.Other than that I would definitely recomend this book to outhers. Also im looking forward to reading more books by Doug TenNael such as Bad Island, and Power Up.

    Really good book..

    I liked this book, its a really interesting reading book i would recommend this book to a friend because of the mystery and its great plot. Also the book looked a bit freaky because of its cover and its Title "Ghostoplis" i thought it was going to be a book about freaking (like i said) but it turns out it had a twist to it its sad also because the boy Garth went to the spirit world and met his Grandfather, a man his mom never wanted to talk about. that was a really good twist to the book in after all i loved the book and i would recommend it to a friend
