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.

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."
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
