Reviews
Praise for Eerie Elementary #1: "The plot and twisted storyline will serve the beginning chapter book reader well. Word choice, action, and crisp sketches support the story, allowing early readers to develop ideas and easily follow the plot." -- Library Media Connection"Give this early chapter book to readers who want something scary but aren't ready for the 'Goosebumps' or 'Scream Street' series." -- School Library Journal"Dynamic, cartoonish illustrations amp up the action, and fun onomatopoeia provides atmosphere....Readers who relish the action of Dav Pilkey's Ricky Ricotta series and the just-beyond-safe scares of R.L. Stine's Rotten School titles may want to enroll at Eerie Elementary." -- Booklist"Chabert hits just the right horror note for transitional readers, with thrills that include a dash of absurd humor and fall tactfully short of being truly frightening....Simple sentence structure, some repetitive (but not tedious) vocabulary and a direct storytelling style make this a worthy and creepy addition to the Branches series, and the scary story aspect will likely pull in a few reluctant readers. Ricks' illustrations add an appropriately gloomy but playful touch." -- Bulletin of the Center for Children's BooksPraise for Eerie Elementary #2: "Plenty of action words and direct sentences make this suitable for emerging readers....it will be a good fit for readers not quite ready for Lovecraft Middle School or Goosebumps." -- Booklist
