Children's Literature - Maria Lamattina, EdD.
"With an RL of 2.6 (Guided Reading Level N), this strange, entertaining tale is an easy read, even for reluctant readers, and will make a good addition to a study of the horror/ghost story genre. Illustrated sparingly with simple, realistic, black and white sketches, the book is also a good example of a multi-genre work for younger readers. At the end of the book there is a police report and case notes, shedding additional light on Grant’s experience, as well as a “Dear Reader” letter from the author, Jason Strange (an obvious pseudonym). As an additional aid for use in Guided Reading groups or book clubs, the book also includes a glossary, discussion questions, and writing prompts, allowing for its readers to work cooperatively and independently." - Children's Literature
