I very much enjoyed the first two books in this series and was curious to see if this third volume was as enjoyable as its predecessors. I am happy to report that the series has lost none of its charm and ripping thrills.

In the first volume of this series we met Stanley Buggles, who is a smart, courageous, inquisitive, and clever young hero. The setting, the isolated island of Crampton Rock, is just right, with lots of odd residents and hidden secrets. The supporting characters are sometimes cra
Stanley Buggles is back at Crampton Rock and something BIG is coming to Candlestick Hall. Can Stanley and Daisy once again save the day?

The third entry in the Something Wickedly Weird series brings Stanley and Daisy face to face with the undead. The Ibis, a magical token that had been concealed in the belly of a mounted pike, has been exposed to water and triggered the Awakening, a call to all the pirate undead. Hoardes of pirate corpses rise from their graves, be they on land or at sea, and all
I was excited for the Awakening to be in full swing and Angel Cuzco was intimidating. His character could have been utilized a lot more to enliven the story. I was disappointed towards the end. I felt it was anti-climactic. Without giving up spoilers I will say that the anticipation was mounting and then it flopped, ending too quickly to enjoy it. I was amused by how clever Stanley was. Some significant events took place that I enjoyed because they were surprising.

I'm really starting to love these books! The writing is fantastic, the dialogue is witty, the illustrations are great! All around, the high quality of these books make wonderful children's books. Thank you, Chris Mould, for writing WELL WRITTEN literature for children! You are awesome!
Malcolm says, "I liked it because I really like caskets. Whatever was pirates, I liked. I liked Angel Cuzco, who was the fiercest of all pirates. Now I need to eat some pie. I'll do more interviews later."
for Something Wickedly Weird: The Silver Casket by Chris Mould.
Stanley and Daisy meet ghosts and have to protect The Ibis from the threat of hoards of undead treasure seekers.
Could have done with a little more action, but there were plenty of surprises in the story that kept Seth and I turning pages.

A good example of "show, don't tell", or rather, a bad example. This is more "tell lots and don't show".
Love all of them i read 3 of them so far
