So as a fan of the older Wimpy Kid series (up to 6-7 I really enjoyed the series) I just had to grab this one along when I saw it at the library. Plus, I was looking for some books for Halloween and this one sounded pretty good!
This book is formatted just like the Wimpy Kid series. Plenty of illustrations, round font, textbook (with lines) feel. I really loved that the author kept that which I loved in Wimpy Kid for this one as well.
In this one we get many spooky (or spoopy as they aren’t really that scary) stories. There are 14 stories in total, and all very fun. We have a little girl with vampire teeth who likes to bite people and things (which causes some problems), we have a ghost friend, a science project that may or may not have been a good idea, skeletons, a stain that reacts to lies, and a lot more. Each story is original and fun to read. I definitely wasn’t scared reading the stories, maybe I got a bit of goosebumps as I read, but that was it. Still, I enjoyed it and flew through the book, before I knew it I was done reading. And I wanted more. I hope that Rowley Jefferson finds some new spoopy stories and gets a new book filled with them.
I loved how much humour there was and unexpected paths a story would take. Some endings made me pause as I hadn’t expected to go in that way. XD
My favourite stories would be the girl who bites and the story about the grandma (which was sad, but I also really liked reading it).
The art fitted with the stories and I like the style.
All in all, if you are in for some humorous silly spoopy stories for Halloween, then be sure to check out this book.
