I won a book from Goodreads, entitled “The Scariest Haunted House Project Ever!” by Gary M. Nelson.
It is very, very entertaining. The plot may seem childish, but I loved it. It’s a book best shared with your little one. My son and I promised that we would read a chapter each night. But we cheated and read two to three chapters each night. This was a great bonding activity for us which allowed us to laugh together, practice reading, make faces at some character’s dialogues, and even get scared together!
The book is the second part of the Project Kids Adventure Series by the same author. The characters are in Middle School, facing the usual dilemma of kids- trying to belong, managing their studies, building friendships, facing their fears, the usual. Now they have a school project and it is to build the scariest Haunted House – Ever!
There are some really exciting parts, and some funny parts too. Really nice!
It’s a good read for kids ages, 6 to 60. But you have to be young-at-heart to really appreciate this. If you are grouchy, you better read this too so you can have a smile on your face.
It’s available at Smashwords, if you want to buy an e-copy, which I strongly suggest. Mailing is quite costly if you opt to buy a hardcopy and it would take about two months for it to be delivered from the US. Believe me, I’ve tried, many times. And it will be sent by post, you’d have to still pick it up at the Post Office nearest you and pay a tax (about P50).
By the way, I got my copy from Mr. Gary M. Nelson, through Goodreads, for an honest review of the book.
