Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Maria Lamattina EdD.
Thirteen year old Grant Gardner has somehow talked his mother into letting him attend a midnight showing of a classic horror movie, one for which he received a personal invitation. As soon as he gets to the theater, however, Grant feels something is not quite right—no one else seems to be around—not even in the ticket booth! Once inside, Grant sees just one other person in the theater, Ruthie, a young girl about his age, who seems to be quite familiar with the movie they begin to watch. In fact, Ruthie says that the movie has been her favorite since the day it opened. That strikes Grant as rather strange since the movie came out in the 1930s, "long before even their parents were alive." With an RL of 2.6 (Guided Reading Level N), this brief, intriguing ghost story is an easy read, even for reluctant readers, and will make a good addition to a study of the horror/ghost story genre. Illustrated sparingly with simple, realistic, black and white sketches, the book is also a good example of a multi-genre work for younger readers. At the end of the book there is a police report and case notes, shedding additional light on Grant's experience, as well as a "Dear Reader" letter from the author, Jason Strange (an obvious pseudonym). As an additional aid for use in Guided Reading groups or book clubs, the book also includes a glossary, discussion questions, and writing prompts, allowing for its readers to work cooperatively and independently. Reviewer: Maria Lamattina, EdD.
