Description du produit

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 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.

I am a teacher and I bought this book for one of my reading groups. They loved the book and asked if I could order the second story in the series. The book is witty and done in a fun fashion that allows for a lot of teachable moments.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 The Klise sisters are amazing! 5 mars 2014
Par Southern reader - Publié sur Amazon.com

Years ago I found Regarding the Fountain at a library sale and was amazed at the inventiveness of the Klise sisters (one is the writer, one is the illustrator and they are definitely both doing the heavy lifting). This is book one in a separate series but it mirrors the "Regarding the..." books as illustrated epistolary mysteries for kids - I'm just surprised they aren't more highly regarded (maybe they are but I don't know that I've ever heard anything about them anywhere). Anyway, for children who like mysteries and/or for children who prefer comics to books these would be perfect. I liked this a bit less than the best of the "Regarding the..." series, but still well worth reading and I'll find the others. Congratulations to the Klises on another winner!

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.

I got my entire class hooked on the series. Each student ended up writing a sequel by creating a new character and problem. : )

The best series and always good for a laugh. Def can be read over and over again. We all enjoy them from 9-adult ages. Love the play on words and kids get the biggest kick out of them. This is one of my personal favorites.
