Derek is an eleven-year-old ghost who haunts the classrooms and hallways of Scary School, writing down all the spine-tingling often hilarious things that go on there. Despite his ghostly state, Derek still enjoys reading comic books and hopes to one day become a master ninja. If that doesn’t work out, he will continue to share the fun of this very special, very secret school, so all kids can experience the scariest school on earth. Derek the Ghost communicates through the first-time ghost whisperer Derek Taylor Kent, who is a writer and performer in Los Angeles, California.

Hey everyone! Scary School #2 Monsters on the March comes out next week on June 26!

Can't for you all to read it!

message 2: by Derek

Derek The Wow! Thanks so much! That's really great to hear! Well, Book 2 comes out this June, so it's hopefully not TOO long a wait... there's also some other fun books of mine they can check out on the website in the Scary Store!

I'm doing tons of school visits right now, so maybe I'll be able to visit you guys one day. What part of the country are you in?

Derek

Lindis Russell Hey there Derek! Remember me? I won one of your books a while ago. I wanted to share something with you. I work part time for our city's elementary after school program. I work there full time in the summer, but only on Wednesdays during the school year. I decided to start reading Scary School to the kids in October for a Halloween treat. Well, I am now their favorite person. They absolutely loved it! They couldn't wait for me to get started on Wednesdays, and were dissapointed when I had to stop. When we finished we went right to the website to read the secret chapter. And they almost can't wait until the next one comes out! Even if I'm not at that school next year, I'll have to arrange to go there and read it to them. All the kids loved it from kindergarten to 5th grade. Hope you are enjoying great success, and plan to keep the school open! Thanks again! Lindis Russell : ) P.S. Jason is my fave!
