Review for The Happy and Heinous Halloween of Classroom 13

Matthew J. Gilbert, Joëlle Dreidemy, Orange, Halloween, Humour, Children's Books, Revenge, Costumes, Mummy, Pumpkin, Cobwebs, Children, Horses, Wolves, The Happy and Heinous Halloween of Classroom 13, Honest Lee,Classroom 13 is finally getting its revenge in this halloweentastic hilarious book!

Now I got to wait for a bit longer as I am all through the books I got. I just LOVE this series so much and I am happy I discovered it. I am glad I picked up those two Dutch translated books of this series.

Remember how in each of the books the Classroom swore to have his revenge? Well, in this one that happens! In a wonderful and delightful way that had me laughing. How does he get his revenge? Well, it is time for Halloween in the world of Classroom 13 and everyone is dressed up (oh Emma, why did you have to go as that?), there is candy on the desk of their teacher. Yum yum… and then, POOF you are your costume, which has many people probably wishing for a better costume. I mean a hotdog? A toilet roll? I think that some people will be thinking more carefully about their costume next Halloween. I would recommend it, just in case this happens again. 😛

I loved that while we did get to see everyone’s POV we also saw what happened in the classroom itself and we saw two characters who had to save the day. It made the story come more together and made it feel together than the other books. Don’t get me wrong, I loved how it was done in the other stories, and in those we at times also saw what happened elsewhere, it is just great fun to give each character a chance to shine. But in this one it just fits better to also have two characters stand out. Someone has to save the day.

The chaos in the classroom was just fabulous and I had a lot of fun seeing the kids change into their costumes. Someone who dressed as a wolf became a werewolf, someone dressed as a cowboy became a cowboy inclusive the accent and the excellent lasso skills.

I loved the ending and what happened there. That is a perfect plan, and I am delighted to see how Classroom 13 reacted and what happened next. I am definitely looking forward to the next book in the series and seeing that person again.

Again the illustrations are just fabulous and tons of fun. They make everything even more fun and even sillier.

All in all, recommended. Perfect for Halloween so I am looking forward to doing a re-read of this book then.
