The Bailey School Kids books are awesome! They are funny with a just hint of scary and always offer a good mystery for young readers. These books are good for children who are just beginning with chapter books as well as those who just enjoy a good mystery. This one in particular was a favorite of mine because it was about soccer (which I love), but the series covers a wide range of topics that could appeal to any young reader.
My daugter LOVES the Bailey School Kids series. This is the only book from the series that I, personally, have read. It was cute, and definitely humorous, although some of the humor was lost on my 7 year old. Definitely not the same quality literature as "The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane" or "Ella Enchanted". But, this is a fun series of books for elementary age kids, and worth letting them enjoy.

The Bailey School Kids is a best-selling children's book series by Marcia Thornton Jones and Debbie Dadey. Its main characters are a group of four children (Eddie, Howie, Liza, Melody) who suspect some persons in the stories are popular folk lore or fairy tale characters. They are appealing because they mix a familiar story in with this group of kids. Mid-grammar school

Very intresting story! It talks about a football team of a certain school that turnrd out to be a zombie! I liked it becuase it was fun to read how the kids suffered with this zombie and how they knew it was one!
I liked this book because it was really good and fun to read. I like the characters and they make me laugh. I like how the author decided to make the coach a zombie.

The collection of "The adventures of the Bailey School Kids" stories are among my all-time favorite children's books. Witty, mischievous and fun, these short and silly books continue to bring giggles to the young and old. Just as I have enjoyed them as a kid, my own children also love them today. I even catch myself re-reading them (alone) from time to time. What can I say? I guess I'll always be a BSK kid at heart.

A great early grades reader. Brings back fond memories from my childhood. I really enjoyed reading it to my son. Story is simple and fun. Awesome for kids.

Debbie Dadey and Marcia Thornton Jones co-authored the fifteenth book in the series. The dialogue is excellent.
Illustrator John Steven Gurney employs his signature close-up style that was absent in early books.

I found this book today while visiting my niece and it looked interesting so I sat down and read it. It was a cute little book with a simple plot. Not a bad use of 20 minutes.

it is about a zombie wanting to play soccer but he can't, so the children is trying to help the zombie but it is hard.
I now learn that there is no such thing as zombies...but I still think there is..if you belive me that is
