I recently read the book Scary School by Derek the Ghost and illustrated by Scott M. Fischer which was mentioned on The Picnic Basket. This is the review that I gave the book (I am not being paid to give this review):
I would give this book 5 out of 5. I thought it was a great book for upper elementary school and middle school. This would be a perfect book for October book clubs in the classroom. I think it would also be a fun book to read aloud to a class. It also is a book full of great vocabulary and puns to use for a language arts lesson. Social skills can be discussed when talking about differences in the world (as shown by the different children and their abilities in the book). I would highly recommend this for classrooms and libraries.
