Dying to Meet You by Kate Klise January 22, 2011

IB Grumply is overdue on a deadline for the latest book in his series. In order to get some writing done, he decides to move into a rickety old house that is already inhabited by a mischievous boy, his cat, and…possibly…a ghost named Olive.

The puns that fill the book are very cool, and not cheesy at all! I liked the format because it was not just plain text, the puns in names and items and the message about what makes up a family. However, the ‘detective’ guy was not really needed to make the story work.

My favorite elements were: Characters, Plot, Conflict, Resolution, Literary Devices, and the format (articles, letters, etc.). I’d recommend it for readers in 4th – 6th grade.

Overall: I loved it!
