It’s winter and what could be better than a ghostly holler-day by the sea? But how are Tabitha Tumbly, Charlie Vapour, Humphrey Bump and the other ghosties going to decide between Frighten-on-Sea and Scare-borough?
A postcard from their friend Headless Leslie decides for them: Headless is in Frighten and cannot remember how to get home. He wrote the address on the postcard, then he forgot what the address was.
So the friends descend on Frighten and set off on an exciting ghosty caper, involving a haunted Frighten pier, a mysterious phantom magician, a fun fair, and an extremely infuriating Headless Leslie.
Now and then I like to review children’s books and I grabbed this one up a while back because it sounded funny. Darren King has a series called Frightfully Friendly Ghosties and they are not the pretties bunch of ghost you have ever seen but they are interesting. I haven’t read any of the other books in this series but I bet they are just as fun as Ghostly Holler-day.
The ghostly gang has decided they want to take a holler day but can’t make up their minds where they want to go. There are two choices and some one to go to one place and some to the other place. Then they notice that Wither is hiding something from them and they go and find out what it is. They see that Headless Leslie has sent them a postcard from Frighten and he says that he is lost and cant find his way home.
So this decides for the gang where they are going to go as they must go and find their friend. While they are there they hear about a scary ghost that has people scared and they think it’s headless Leslie, but maybe it’s not. In their search for Leslie they run into something strange and frightening.
Will they ever get to enjoy their holler-day?
Frightfully Friendly Ghosties is full of cute fun filled ghosties and not the scary kind. I think that young readers will have a lot of fun reading about their Ghostly Holler-day adventure. The illustrations are different and give these ghost some character. Over all I thought it was a cute chapter book that young readers would like.
