“It Creeps!” is book one in Dotti Enderle’s “Ghost Detectors” series. This short chapter book with black-and-white illustrations is intended for young children, and as such it is slightly immature and silly. Reminiscent of Jimmy Neutron, Malcolm—the main character—is a junior inventor and scientist with his rather clueless sidekick, Dandy. When he isn’t busy fending off his older sister Cocoa, Malcolm enjoys discovering new devices. Of course he is unable to resist an ad for the Ecto-Handheld-Automatic-Heat-Sensitive-Laser-Enhanced Specter Detector, which entices him to check out the local haunted house in search of ghosts. He and Dandy may end up finding more than they bargain for, however, in this fun and mildly frightening story, the last page of which is dedicated to the “Top Five Ways to Detect a Ghost, Spirit, or Poltergeist.” Young children who are fond of silly antics with a slightly ghostly theme will likely enjoy this book with its short length and quick ending.Was this review helpful?
