Goofy little story. It has unbelieveable characters, but a fun set of dialog. A good read for children. Not really scarry, just goofy.

I tend to grab up any books I can find with Cornelia Funke’s name on them. I’m glad I did this one, although Ghosthunters and the Gruesome Invincible Lightning Ghost! is noticeably different from what I usually expect of her books (Inkheart, The Thief Lord, and Reckless, for instance). Ghosthunters is lighter, an easier read–really more what you would expect from middle-grade serial novels. But for that genre, it’s a high quality example with an interesting plot, good characters, and quality wri ...more

Well that was interesting. The book was most certainly written for the audiences of those who have yet to have devolved body parts and have voiced drop. But still, I remember seeing these books in scholastic magazine, back in the day when my family used to actually order from it. I had always wanted to read them but was "too young" for them.
None the less, these books are incredibly inventive and new, using old and done before ideas. Good piece of work.

In this particular story, I liked the idea o

I like this book because it states why the boy is a Ghosthunter, also it states why he hunts ghost, for example: Hetty Hyssopos is the main ghosthunter and he has a team of ghost that help him fight them off. (page 1), another example: is that Hetty really has fun hunting ghost and loves to fight the bad one.(page 4)
My cousin Jaylin will like this book because it talks about how fun ghosthunting is, Also it talks about how it is active for young kids like myself and it takes you on an adventure.

After reading Cornelia Funke’s first Ghosthunter’s book, we purchased the other three books in audiobook form from Audible.com. This book continues the adventures of eleven-year old Tom and Hetty Hyssop, with the addition of Hugo, an ASG (Averagely Spooky Ghost), to their team. Alvin Bigshot calls them to his seaside resort to deal with, what turns out to be, a Gruesome Invincible Lightning Ghost (GILG). Any seven to ten-year old Ghostbusters fan will appreciate their suspenseful escapades. As i ...more

Funke's talent as a writer and illustrator bring this mad-cap adventure a sense of child-thrilling doom and delight with our brave and resourceful characters fighting ghosts of every shape and size using surprising methods.
The author, kindly, provides the reader with a guide at the end of each book regarding how to prepare and best combat any of the otherworldly creatures should they be encountered.

Al fin, no he podido pillarlos y leer en orden la saga de "Hugo" pero estoy feliz de haber encontrado en Filsa este tomo que no tenía (el tercero de mi colección). Me encanta como todo puede resultar muy infantil y gracioso y de pronto... tengo miedo!! estas seguro serán lecturas que les haré a mis futuros hijos! :)
