Scooby-Doo! and the Groovy Ghost is an excellent mystery read. This chapter book gives the right amount of suspense for students. During this read, each chapter leads to another clue which makes you want to keep reading. The surrealistic characters such as Scooby-Doo and the groovy ghost, create an exciting environment for students so they wont feel as spooked out as it would be if it were played by realistic characters. The question that leaves readers asking is, is the groovy ghost friendly or ...more

This is a chapter book, so if you are looking for a smaller 'storybook' for younger readers-listeners this isn't your book. However, my special needs teenage son and I really enjoyed reading this book and following 'the Gang' through this adventure. Like some of the other SD chapter books we've read, this one wasn't overly boring. Had enough descriptions and details that you as a reader wasn't sure 'who' did the 'crime' until almost the end. (Where as some of the others a quarter into the book y ...more

This book is one of my childhood favorites. I'm a huge Scooby Doo fan, always will be, and this was the first, and for a long time the only, Scooby Doo book I had. I've read it multiple times. This book is done in classic Scooby Doo fashion. Even if your child isn't a Scooby fan, it's still a book that they would enjoy. It's a fun mystery filled adventure in a who-don-it style. And even though it has a Groovy Ghost it's not scary at all. Nobody but Shaggy and Scooby will tell you otherwise!

We love all things Scooby-Doo, so whenever we find a Scooby-Doo book we haven't read yet at our local library, we just have to borrow it. The stories in the Scooby-Doo! Mysteries series are simple, fun, and we enjoy reading them together. Right now, our girls really like these short chapter books, but they also like the shorter picture books too. We've read over thirty of these stories, but there are so many more out there...I think we'll be having fun with these stories for years to come.

Yet another Scooby book under out belts. :) This one wasn't one of my favorites but Julia liked it well enough. (There hasn't been one she hasn't liked - either the Mysteries or the Collect-the-Clues.)
I did notice with this one that Julia's getting more adept at pulling the clues out and apart. She's starting to notice smaller things and connect them with the bigger picture which is fun to watch. It's also a lovely thing to finish reading and hear her beg me for "one more chapter".

My favourite character is Scooby Dooby Doo because I like the things he does when he is solving a mystery like when he runs away and acts really funny. My least favourite character is the Groovy Ghost because he is a bad guy.
I think that other people should read this book because its really funny and cool.
