"(Review of digital arc from EdelweissPlus) This new David Lubar series will be just the right thing for those 3rd-5th grade students who want to read a ghost story, but don't really want to be scared. The font, spacing and easy flowing sentences make this series particularly useful for the reluctant to read crowd. As for the story, book 1 is definitely more of a mystery than a ghost story and provides an introduction to Alex and Sarah who, I believe, will be the protagonists throughout this series. The cousins behave more like siblings and come across as very likable and typical upper elementary school students, but with Alex having one trait that makes him stand out--he breaks into a rash whenever ghosts are near. And the nearer the ghosts are, the worse the rash gets. That's a problem when your grandparents live in a house haunted by ghost done wrong in life and you are sent to stay there for a week. If I buy this series for my library, it will likely be read by those who enjoy Lubar's Looniverse series and less by those who are fans of his "Weenies" scary story collection books." said.

" What a cute book! Loved all the characters and the writing was very engaging. Also love the fact that it was a mystery. Highly recommended. " said.

" Cute, but much simpler than the other SSYRA books I’ve read. Good for kiddos who like fantasy and ghosts, but not very scary. Boy and girl cousins, but no diversity. " said.

" Funny and easy...a good book for struggling readers and/or those beginning to read chapter books. " said.

" Kid breaks out in hives whenever he encounters a ghost. Dumb and forgettable, but I'm sure it will find an audience :) " said.

" A boy and his cousin visit his grandparent's new house which has a ghost. The boy has severe allergies, which are triggered when he is near the ghost. They help clear the ghost's name and solve the town's mystery too. A really quick read, cute, but not amazing. Might be good for third graders. " said.

" I loved this short tale. Again, another series for young readers to jump on. I thought it was engaging and somewhat funny at times. A young boy who breaks out in a rash every time a ghost is around spends his time trying to solve the mystery...and get rid of the rash. QUICK read...took only about 30 minutes for an adult. Great starter series. Highly recommend. " said.

"Well, this book was simply adorable! I loved that it was a little mystery and ghost story rolled into one. The plot was really well done. Even though this was a children's book, it was still a very sophisticated story. It was long enough to really tell a full, good tale -- but short enough to hold a child's attention. I would definitely recommend this one for your children...as long as they're not afraid of ghosts!
