Ghostsitters by Angie Sage

Ghostsitters by Angie Sage
Published: London : Bloomsbury Children's, 2008
Series: Book 5, Araminta Spook

Araminta's Aunt Tabby has won a Transylvanian holiday for four so she and all the adults of Spook House are going for a much-needed break but it just so happens to be Araminta's birthday, too. So who will keep an eye on Araminta and her friend Wanda? Mathilda, Araminta's 'grown up' cousin, arrives to babysit, along with two rowdy teenage ghosts.

Ghostsitters is a neat little story that is a very light, fast-paced read.  I really like the Araminta Spook series by Angie Sage.  They are for younger readers but the storyline is interesting enough to keep me entertained.
I find Araminta to be such a funny character.  She is clueless about so many things like in this book she had no idea what a pizza was.  It was so cute.
The illustrations are really cool too.  I find the way the people are drawn to be similar to Arnold of Hey Arnold, with the football shaped heads.
There were a couple of things that were meant to be a surprise but I guessed them part way through the story but that didn't stop me from enjoying it.
Overall, Ghostsitters is a neat little story that is entertaining and a very light and fast read that is mostly good for younger readers but it is a delightful story for anyone who is interested.
I'd recommend this one to anyone who likes ghosts and little mysteries.
My Rating: φφφφ

  1. I'm a big fan of the Middle Grade type books myself. Next time I'm in the store I'm going to look for this one.
