#2 Spooksville.

Segunda entrega de la serie Fantasville, en el nos encontramos a los mismos protagonistas que la novela anterior, y esta vez se unen a la aventura dos hermanos mas (Cindy y Neil)
El libro es entretenido, y los personajes claramente definen sus personalidades, que pase el siguiente señorita Laura.

I was reading The Serpent's shadow just now, and I read the word "jetty" and suddenly, I remembered this book. I remembered how scared I was when I read this as a kid and how I loved it and how i reread it lots of times. :D
Re-reading this series as an adult... well not a very mature adult, but still... older than the recommended age. I love this series when I was younger and, having seen some of the Hub's television version, felt the need to reread these books.

The Howling Ghost is one of my all time favourite Spooksville stories. The introduction of Cindy to balance out Sally's character is excellent (I find Sally overbearing at times!). The boy's meeting Cindy was pretty cute ("Or a rose that's been crushed" Adam
I liked the story. It actually kept me guessing who the ghost was and that was something I didn't expect. Unfortunately, Sally becomes less quirky and more of a jealous stereotype in this book. She also became slightly annoying with all of the shark warnings.
