Well that was interesting. The book was most certainly written for the audiences of those who have yet to have devolved body parts and have voiced drop. But still, I remember seeing these books in scholastic magazine, back in the day when my family used to actually order from it. I had always wanted to read them but was "too young" for them.
None the less, these books are incredibly inventive and new, using old and done before ideas. Good piece of work.

In this particular story, I liked the idea o

Al fin, no he podido pillarlos y leer en orden la saga de "Hugo" pero estoy feliz de haber encontrado en Filsa este tomo que no tenía (el tercero de mi colección). Me encanta como todo puede resultar muy infantil y gracioso y de pronto... tengo miedo!! estas seguro serán lecturas que les haré a mis futuros hijos! :)
I like this book because it states why the boy is a Ghosthunter, also it states why he hunts ghost, for example: Hetty Hyssopos is the main ghosthunter and he has a team of ghost that help him fight them off. (page 1), another example: is that Hetty really has fun hunting ghost and loves to fight the bad one.(page 4)
My cousin Jaylin will like this book because it talks about how fun ghosthunting is, Also it talks about how it is active for young kids like myself and it takes you on an adventure.
Silly story- but good for little kids. Audio.
Funke's talent as a writer and illustrator bring this mad-cap adventure a sense of child-thrilling doom and delight with our brave and resourceful characters fighting ghosts of every shape and size using surprising methods.
The author, kindly, provides the reader with a guide at the end of each book regarding how to prepare and best combat any of the otherworldly creatures should they be encountered.
Always wear red and keep a mirror handy!

this book was given only two stars because it is not a good book at all. it has very little detail and is not very real. even though it is a fiction book it still so unreal that it is bad. the characters are to unreal, one of the ghost hunters is a ghost him self. the ghost hunters are old and one is young and the book said it is a job filled with danger to y is he only 10 or 11.
I liked this one even better than the first. It was funny and creative. The type of ghost that was battled in this story had a lot more complications than the ghost in the first book which made for a more complex and generally better story.

This book was better than the first one. It had some funnier parts taking place in a hotel and with the hotel manager. I think part of the description of some parts of this book were lost in the translation, but still a fun read.

you should read this book because I want you to know about the whole thing because it is real]y good.

The scariest part is when the hand comes out of the elevator.
What a fun book for children beginning to read chapter books. Ghosts are a fun subject, slightly scary. This book, and the series, are fun, funny, and fast-paced.
it is well writtten
A fun series about a boy, his grandmother's friend who hunts ghosts, and their not-so-scary ghost friend who helps them. Very fun and imaginative.
Lovely! My children and I LOVED listening to this book. The narrator is great, and it's a well written story. We've already dove into book 3.
J loves this series. It is just silliness and fun and all things light while still having a little bit of a scary edge to make it thrilling!

Read this years ago..
Good for kids in early teens....

Also for adults who wanna take a break from serious reading and chillax...
My 10 year old really likes this series. The language can be a little beyond his reading level at times, but the plots have him hooked.
This book is good for young elementary students who enjoy a good laugh at a book and don't want to be too scared.
Hetty Heslop and company fight fire ghosts and lightning ghosts with icing and spit.
I liked it because there wasn't just one ghost, there were a lot of little ghosts.
I liked this one even better than the first one. Again a fun book for me to read.
Book #2 in a cute, funny series for elementary school kids. Mine loved it!
I was disappointed with this book. It was really quite boring.
Very fun romp from an excellent author :)
Another great book to listen to.
Fun and campy ghosthunting romp!
Ethan gives it two thumbs up!
