Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Krisan Murphy
This addition to the “Calendar Mysteries” series takes place in the Shangri-la Hotel in the community of Green Lawn on Halloween night. Four friends, Bradley, Brian, Nate, and Lucy, gather in their creative costumes to attend the haunted house event in the hotel. When a giant, scary ogre stands at the entrance of the hotel, Nate is too scared to rush into the suspicious-looking building. The group of friends admirably stick together (without bullying the youngest in the group) and wait until Nate is ready to brave the event. When the friends eventually enter the hotel, they are in for a series of frightening scenes, although they realize (as they often declare) that the spiders, snakes, skeletons, and such are fake. Mysteriously, although the foursome enters the building after their classmates have arrived, there is no sign of the others inside the hotel. Nate’s imagination runs wild. The goal of the haunted house is to reach the ogre’s treasure and get a big surprise, and that is exactly what happens in the end. This short chapter book is a delightful read for the Halloween holiday without being gory. It includes commendable attributes of friendship. Reviewer: Krisan Murphy AGERANGE: Ages 6 to 9.
