book 5 in the 43 Old Cemetery Road series

I just thought I'd share how much I am still loving this series. Each book is just as delightful as the last. The illustrations and the format just make these such quick and enjoyable reads. If you like quirky middle grade fiction, these are books for you. I highly recommend these for reluctant readers or kids who enjoy graphic novels. There's lots to keep the attention of kids who aren't huge fans of reading (and ones who love to devour stories).

In this novel they are casting the movie of 43 Old Cemetery Road and the family is excited, because they figure now they will be famous. Unfortunately Hollywood thinks that the family isn't quite right for the parts of themselves and some of them need huge makeovers. They do get to meet someone very interesting though, that turns out to be a great edition to their family. This was a fun and fast and delightful read. 

First Line:
"Welcome to 43 Old Cemetery Road!"

Favorite Line:
"Look at Olive cut your long hair with her death claws."
