Présentation de l'éditeur

The news from Ghastly, Illinois, is grave—and that’s something to laugh about!

The International Movement for the Safety & Protection Of Our Kids & Youth (IMSPOOKY) dictates that Seymour cannot live in the mansion at 43 Old Cemetery Road “without the benefit of parents.” Ignatius B. Grumply tries to explain to Dick Tater, the head of IMSPOOKY, that he and Seymour are in a lovely living arrangement with the ghost of Olive C. Spence. Dick Tater is not convinced. But this clever trio can’t be broken up as easily as he imagines . . .

After being abandoned by his parents, 11-year-old Seymour Hope took to living at the old Spence Mansion with the cranky author, Ignatius B. Grumply, and the ghost of Olive C. Spence, a failed author who has vowed to haunt the mansion at 43 Old Cemetery Road until one of her mysteries is published. Together, the trio has published the first three chapters of a ghost story (aptly entitled 43 OLD CEMETERY ROAD), and are busily working on the following three, which they hope to have ready for their subscribers by Halloween.

At least, they were until the arrival of a letter from Dick Tater, director of the International Movement for the Safety and Protection of Our Kids and Youth (aka IM SPOOKY)...

According to Mr. Tater, Grumply cannot be the legal guardian of Seymour, and neither of them can be living with Olive, since she died in 1911. Tater promptly removes Seymour and places him in the orphanage, and has Grumply committed to an insane asylum. As if that wasn't bad enough, Tater announces that the book was a hoax all along. Outraged fans of 43 OLD CEMETERY ROAD begin demanding refunds and jumping on board Tater's plan to burn all of the ghost stories in the world instead of celebrating Halloween. It's up to the illustrator Seymour to come up with a clever plan to save the reputations of his coauthors and, ultimately, Halloween.

Told through a series of letters, transcripts, and newspaper clippings, this second book in the series makes for an enjoyable read, especially for the reluctant reader who likes to laugh.

Kate and Sarah Klise Do It Again 24 octobre 2011
Par Michele Kingery - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Ghostly Olive, grumpy Ignatius and their adopted son, Seymour, have to work hard to keep their little family together in this sequel to Dying to Meet You, book one of the 43 Cemetery Road series. This time, they're up against "Dick Tater", the creepy, megalomaniac director of the International Movement for the Safety & Protection Of Our Kids & Youth (IMSPOOKY). Tater sends Seymour to an orphanage, has Ignatius committed and tries to do away with Halloween - turning it, instead, into a Dick Tater Day Celebration.

As in the first book, the story is creatively structured through a succession of letters, drawings and newspaper articles that make this an entertaining read. In this book we find out just how awful Seymour's birth parents really are and what became of Olive's manuscripts. In fact, books, and a bookmobile may save the day, hopefully in enough time for Olive, Ignatius and Seymour to create the next installment of their ghostly tales.

This story of three "lost" and lonely people who find their way to each other is as charming as the first. And with Seymour and Ignatius in danger, the stakes are higher. Will Seymour's real parents come back to claim him? Will Olive's manuscripts resurface in time to do any good? Will Seymour, Ignatius and Olive continue their writing career? Will Dick Tater succeed with his evil plan to banish Halloween forever?

The delightful drawings, quirky character names and spooky-fun setting of the Spence mansion all add up to another enjoyable book with a message about family at the heart of it. Hurrah for Kate and Sarah Klise. I look forward to the next book in the series.

Over My Dead Body! 1 août 2009
Par Barbara Sharpe - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Commentaire client Vine pour produit gratuit ( De quoi s'agit-il? )
I love children's books and ghosts stories, so I was excited to get Over My Dead Body. When I got it ... well, I was alarmed by the format of the book and was prepared to dislike it. It's entirely written as a graphic novel or as letters between various people, along with excerpts from the local newspaper. It sounds confusing, and I thought it would be, but it wasn't. It was easy to follow and fun to read.

The story is essentially this: Seymour Hope is living with Ignatius Grumply and Olive C. Spence in a mansion that Seymore bought from his parents, after his parents left him alone to go to Paris. Seymour, Ignatius and Olive, who happens to be the ghost of a woman who died more than 100 years ago, write ghost stories and sell them to the townspeople of Ghastly, IL. Dick Tater, of IMSPOOKY (International Movement for the Saftey and Protection of Our Kids & Youth), receives an anonymous letter that Seymour is living in nebuluous circumstances and steps in. Grumply is committed to the Illinois Home for the Deranged and Seymour is taken the Ghastly Orphanage. No one believes that Olive exists, so she's left alone in the mansion. How do Olive, Seymour and Igantius reunite? That's the story here.

While I enjoyed the book, and I think younger children will, it might be "too young" for 11-12 year olds. However, younger children will very likely enjoy not only the story, but the format as well.

Coffeechug Book Review - www.coffeeforthebrain.blogspot.com 9 janvier 2011
Par A. Maurer - Publié sur Amazon.com

I like this book a whole bunch. Sounds corny, but I do. The approach was refreshing and just a fun, enjoyable read. The book format is unique as you follow the storyline through a series of letters between the old ghost lady, the author, and Seymour, they boy. The visuals and graphics really enhances the storyline as well. I found myself just looking and having fun reading. This did not feel like work. I have the first book as well from the library and I plan on reading this one as well even though it is not a Cybils. The character names, addresses, and other little details were a pleasure as well as many of them were play on words as suggested above in the review. Perfect for any age level and one that I think I need to help promote in my school. I left reading the final pages with a smile on my face which is always a sign of a good old fashion story. Like so many that I read for the Cybils, this is another book that I never would have read if not for this tournament. Thank you Cybils for including me.

Over My Dead Body: 43 Old Cemetery Rd. Book2 10 février 2011
Par Diane Dowding - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
My 9 yr. old daughter just loved this book and the first one. She's waiting for the next one to come in a couple more months and it's driving her crazy to have to wait so long. She loved them so much she read them each in 2 days. She was so sad when she finished because she wanted more pages to read! They are really fun books, I read them after her and it was really fun to talk with her about them afterwards. We highly recommend these!
