A nice story for earlier middle grade readers. Lots of word play, with fun spellings and creative names for the characters such as Dr. Izzy Dedyet, Postmaster Sue Perstisus, and a host of others. This book continues the adventures of Seymour Hope an eleven year-old boy who lives in the town of Ghastly in an old mansion at 43 Old Cemetery Road, without a telephone, television, or any computer gaming devices. The townspeople have to find a way to keep the post office from being closed down and replaced with a new system of communication called VEXT-mail. The book has many entertaining drawings which enhance the story. The fourth in a series that started with, Dying to Meet You (43 Old Cemetery Road). Provided for review by the well read folks at Amazon Vine.
