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.

It's just a normal day for the Bailey School kids. That's until they head to their favorite ice cream shop and meet Scout, the new girl working the counter. Clad in dark clothing and with a hollow and forlorn look on her face, Scout tells the kids that she's in town to find a house for the family she works for. When she adds that she's interested in finding a home that's made of stone and has no windows near the cemetery, the kids realize Scout must be a ghoul looking for a home for a family of vampires. Will the kids be able to stop Scout from bringing a new family of monsters to Bailey City?

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Jean Boreen
This is book #31 of "The Adventures of the Bailey School Kids" series. As in the previous 30 books, Eddie, Howie, Lisa, and Melody grapple with their concerns and fears about the existence of vampires, ghouls, werewolves, monsters and zombies living in Bailey City. In this installment, the kids are suspicious of Scout, the new girl who works at the Burger Doodle. With her pale skin, red-rimmed eyes and unsmiling face, Scout seems a sure bet as a ghoul, especially when she tells the kids that she is helping a family find a house in Bailey City. Their suspicions are heightened when Mrs. Jeepers, whom they are sure is a vampire, seems to know Scout, too. Convinced that Scout is a spy for vampires, the kids decide on a daring plan that will help them figure out once and for all if Scout is a ghoul or if she is a girl who really needs to get out in the sunshine. Without question, this story follows the formula set up and followed from book 1, but that will not matter to the Bailey School Kids' devoted readers; my daughter is standing beside me waiting for me to finish this review so that she can read this book!

'Ghouls Don't Scoop Ice Cream' by Debbie Dadey is a book about a girl named Scout. Scout is a sad character who never laughs. This book is about how Scout laughed for the first time ever. Do you think she will keep laughing or will Scout will keep on being sad? I like mystery books. Everytime I read mystery books it keeps me thinking. I like how they put another scary or funny character in the book. When I read the scary parts of the story, my heart always pumps so fast!
