Dying to Meet You: 43 Old Cemetery Road, Bk1 : Kate Klise :
Can Grumply make friends with his housemates, and write his book?? I think this is one of the most charming and fun children's stories I've ever read!
The concept is creative and cute. The illustrations are just as much a part of the story as the text itself. This was fun to read!! There are seven books in this series and I will definitely be reading them all. I think the cutest thing about the story is that all the names are puns: Beans private Investigator and I. Definitely 5 star rating from me Told exclusively through written communications, this book features letters, newspaper articles, and drawings. Each character This is a quick, breezy read that will appeal to children of all ages, particularly reluctant readers or those struggling with a lack of illustrations.
Each character is given their own type font so it is easy to keep the characters separate.
Grumply types his letters on his computer, Seymour writes his by hand and Olive uses a breezy, light font that is lovely, but still formal. The illustrations are simple pen-and-ink drawings that could have been drawn by a child as Seymour is supposed to have drawn themas well as small drawings accompanying the newspaper articles in the book.
The story is short and you should find yourself rapidly turning pages as there is not a great deal to read on each page barring the newspaper articles, which contain more information and a smaller type. So Iggy, Olive, and Seymour pack their suitcases. She also finds that the movie studio has written her out of the story. But what kind of card do you send to an ex-girlfriend who threatens to publish the love letters of Ignatius B.
And what do you send when the town of Ghastly is rocked by its first crime wave and two escaped convicts are on the loose? Spence, you send for your old butler, T. Leeves, who arrives just in time for tea—and trouble!
