Overview


The hugely popular early chapter book series re-emerges with a new look! Brand-new eye-catching cover art brings a modern feel to this classic monster series for young readers.

Eddie's Great-aunt Mathilda is sick and he has to help take care of her. But when Eddie and his friends visit Mathilda's house, strange things start to happen. Howie sees someone staring at him from the attic window and, when his back is turned, his garlic potato chips are used to spell the word ATTIC on the ground. During later visits the kids hear noises from the attic, but Great-aunt Mathilda swears there's nothing up there. Could the ghost of Eddie's Great-uncle Jasper, who died years ago, be haunting his aunt's home? The Bailey School kids will find out!

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Heidi Quist
Cranky Great Aunt Mathilda has the flu, and poor Eddie's been asked to bring her dinner and help out around the house, but he seems to have caught the cranky bug himself. Eddie's friend Howie comes the first afternoon to help and notices a strange shadow in the attic window of the old house, rumored to be haunted, where Great Aunt Mathilda lives alone. Then Howie finds his potato chips spilled, and spelling "attic" on the ground. But Eddie stubbornly refuses to believe anything is out of the ordinary, even when Liza and Melody get in on the action and notice more mysterious coincidences. Because all of the mysterious clues point the children to the attic, Eddie's friends try to convince him that he needs to check the attic for the ghost of his Great Uncle Jasper for fear that whoever was haunting the house might attack his Great Aunt Mathilda. John Steven Gurney's line drawing illustrations add nicely to the story, while still leaving room for imagination as readers transition from picture books to chapter books. Eddie's whining and stubbornness can get a little tiresome, but otherwise, this ghost story moves along at a steady pace with mostly likeable and believable characters and a plot that will easily maintain the young reader's interest. This is the fifth book in "The Adventures of the Bailey School Kids."
