Revue de presse

"Kate Klise fleshes out the plot with back stories on the house, Seymour’s catastrophic, absent parents and Olive’s haunting of the house. Suspense intrudes when Seymour’s parents reappear and decide to demolish it. Everywhere they look, readers will find comedy, even in the headers on the letters and character names. Of course it’s all going to come out magnificently in the end, thereby setting up the next book in the planned series. A quirky, comedic romp."--Kirkus

"This epistolary graphic mystery may take genre-bending into the realm of genre-pretzeling, but it still delivers an unlikely story with a great deal of likability."--Booklist
"The fun here is in the narrative equipment—letters, e-mails, newspaper extracts, floor plan, cast list, etc., and in the embedded jokes, such as Cliff Hanger (the editor of The Ghastly Times) and Frank N. Beans (the private investigator) . . . young mock-gothic fans will nonetheless be eager to revisit 43 Old Cemetery Road in the anticipated sequels."--Horn Book
"This first title in a new series will appeal to readers, especially reluctant ones, as it moves quickly and leaves its audience eager for book two, which is announced in this ghastly and fun tale."--School Library Journal
"This fresh, funny launch of the 43 Old Cemetery Road series introduces an eccentric cast with pun-tastic names . . . the story is light enough for more tentative readers, with many humorous details to reward those who look closer."--Publishers Weekly
". . . a frothy little confection, whose enjoyability comes as much, if not more, from the format and side jokes . . . as from the main plot. The story is a pleasant example of the supernatural sitcom . . . an engaging and easy-going read. Illustrations, mostly vigorous line portraits drawn by ‘Seymour,’ add additional invitation to the accessible pages.”--The Bulletin

Présentation de l'éditeur

Ignatius B. Grumply moves into the Victorian mansion at 43 Old Cemetery Road hoping to find some peace and quiet so he can crack a wicked case of writer's block. But 43 Old Cemetery Road is already occupied by eleven-year-old Seymour, his cat Shadow, and an irritable ghost named Olive. It's hard to say who is more outraged. But a grumpy old ghost just might inspire this grumpy old man--and the abandoned kid? Well, let's just say his last name's Hope.

Sisters Kate and M. Sarah Klise, the creators of the award-winning Regarding the . . . series, offer up this debut volume in a clever epistolary series told in letters, drawings, newspaper articles, a work-in-progress manuscript, and even an occasional tombstone engraving.

When Ignatius B. Grumply rented out the house on Cemetery Road for the summer to finish his book, he agreed to keep an eye on the owner's son, Seymour Hope. He got a surprise he wasn't expecting: a live-in ghost who used to write books and who loves to cause trouble.

With the noise, his writer's block, and the late night goings-on throughout the house disrupting him, Ignatius is having a hard time finishing his book. A non-believer in ghosts, he instead believes that it is the boy who is making all of the noise and threatens to kick him out.

With his parents nowhere to be found and his home at stake, Seymour is determined to show the cranky writer that he is not a disruptive influence and that ghosts really do exist. With the help of his ghost friend, Olive C. Spence, they'll fight to break down the walls of Ignatius' disbelief. Will they succeed? And will Ignatius ever finish his book?

A humorous tale filled with adventure and a grumpy but lovable ghost. The story is entertaining and unique. The characters are memorable, likable, and well-developed. Readers who like ghost stories, realistic fiction, and adventure will enjoy reading DYING TO MEET YOU.

Better for grown-ups 9 juin 2009
Par Jane M. Schmidt - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
I read a recent review of this book in the Stamford Advocate and was prompted to look it over for my grandchildren. The review said it was for ages 8 - 12. I'm 74 and I absolutely loved it. However, I really don't think a child in that age group would get too much out of it. There are some wonderful plays on words with proper names such as Mr. M. Balm or the book editor, Paige Turner, a detective, Frank N. Beans and our young hero, Seymour Hope. I'm really not sure children would fully appreciate all of the nuances. Further, the whole book is written as a series of letters among Mr. Grumply, an author of children's books who has had writer's block for 20 years, our young hero, a real estate agent, Anita Sale, an attorney (E. Gadd) and the ghost who haunts the house. I'm not sure the average child would have the patience to follow it. Better check it out yourself first. And, if you're as adult as I am or in your second childhood, it's a hoot.

Witty and fun read! 28 avril 2009
Par Z Hayes - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
"Dying to Meet You" is an easy and fun read - and though the target age group is 9-12, this will even appeal to older readers. I loved the story and the creative use of language. Ignatius B. Grumply is a writer in crisis, he has a severe case of writer's block. So what does he do? He rents a spooky old house on Old Cemetery Road in Ghastly, Illinois [don't you just love the name?] but his troubles are far from over as other characters are introduced to complicate matters in the most delightful way, and with witty names like the publisher [Paige Turner], the realtor [Anita Sale], the mischievous ghost [Olive C Spence], the young houseguest and many more.

The story itself is told through a series of letters exchanged between the various main characters. The book is delightfully illustrated with sketches, newspaper reports, notes etc. This is a fast-paced, easy and fun read, and hopefully the first installment in a series. The Klise sisters are immensely talented and I look forward to their future collaborative works.

Delightful Book with a Sweet Message for All Ages 9 octobre 2011
Par Michele Kingery - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
"Dear Olive,

When I moved into your house, I thought I'd made a terrible mistake. The last thing I wanted was an 11-year-old boy and his cat to babysit for the summer.

But Olive, you showed me what it means to care for someone again...."

This book had me at the cover. I couldn't resist the whimsical drawing of the haunted old house or the character standing in front of it dressed in a plaid coat with a messenger bag draped across his shoulder. His name is Ignatius B. Grumply. He is a writer with a "wicked case of writer's block". He has rented the house at number 43 for the summer to work on a long overdue novel.

Ignatius doesn't count on the house being occupied by Seymour, his cat, Shadow and a resident ghost, Olive. Will Seymour drive Ignatius crazy? Will Olive scare him out of the house? Will the novel ever get written?

Kate and Sarah Klise have written and illustrated a wonderful story told in letters, drawings and newspaper articles. On the surface, it's a children's book about a haunted house and the people who inhabit it. On a deeper level, it's a story of three lonely people and how they connect to themselves and, each other.

I loved this book. Good news - there are two more in the series and book four comes out in May of 2012!!

Another Winner for the Klise Sisters 18 avril 2009
Par Duckwalker - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
The Klise sisters have done it again. This quick reading book, written in the "Klise style" of letters, newspapers and notes, tells the story of a grumpy children's author trying to produce his 13th book. It all takes place in an old mansion which is home to a young boy, his cat, and a ghost named Olive. But Olive is not just any ghost. She was once a children's author who never got published. It's all great fun. Now, younger children will be able to enjoy the sisters with this easy to read story. The characters have names that will help but put a smile on your face. My personal favorite was the book editor, Paige Turner.

Dying to Meet You 5 mars 2011

I read the regarding series and really loved they way books were written and the style of telling a story through correspondence letters and new clippings. So I thought I would try other books that these sisters have done together.

This is the first book of their newest series, I hope the rest of it comes out on paper back so I can read it but might just give up and buy the hardbacks, anyways this was a very enjoyable read too.

It's about a writter that has had writers block for 20 years and needs somewhere quite to work, he picks a rental home to rent for the summer, little did he know what he signed up for. The home already had a child and a cat living there, but since he did not read his rental agreement and he's flat broke, he is stuck there. Also along with that there is a ghost in the house too!

How will he write his newest book with all these distractions? Well I'll let you read for yourself.

Very enjoyable, took me about 2 hours to read. I would highly recommend it to the recommend age group and older.
