When Araminta throws cold water over her best friend, Wanda, to disperse a crowd of panicked bats, it s decided Araminta has been helpful one too many times, and she is packed off to boarding school. On arrival, Araminta is surprised to discover that Gargoyle Hall makes her home, Spook House, seems positively cosy. Strange moans and clanks echo down the corridors and the two head girls are equally creepy. Most of the other pupils have been scared away, but Araminta senses that something or someone is behind the menace.With the help of best friend Wanda and Uncle Drac s prize bat, she is going to do something about it!”
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
In usual Araminta Spookie style, this book is full of silly laughs and an entertaining story that children and parents are sure to like. I’ve enjoyed watching the progression of these stories since the first one, and look forward to see what is going to happen in the future.
Hoping for more books.
I thought this one had a bit slower start than some of the others, but the antics soon caught up, making the kids smile and holding their attention. I love books that can make kids curious about what is going to happen next.
If you haven’t checked out this series yet, you should, especially if you have little ones in your life.
Another fun book, another recommendation.
