It’s an icky, sticky situation…

Look out for ghost goo! Dripping sticky green slime wherever it goes, an “ASG” (that’s Averagely Spooky Ghost) is hiding out in Tom’s cellar. Why? Because it’s being haunted, too — by a much bigger, way badder Incredibly Revolting Ghost (“IRG,” for anyone new to ghouls). And the IRG is the kind of ghost that uses its head — as a ginormous bellowing bowling ball, gross!
Good thing for Tom his grandma’s best friend just happens to be a world-famous ghosthunter…

    " Funke's Inkheart series is very good - the Ghosthunters series is for kids and I didn't get into the first book much at all. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Trina | 1/26/2014

    " Silly. Which is probably great for its intended audience of 8-11 year-olds. Made it a little hard for me to get through, though. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer | 12/27/2013

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Eoin | 12/22/2013

    " A nice little book. I got the second one as a small Halloween present so I bought this one on my Nook. It only took me a about three hours to read. I liked it. The characters were humorous and imaginative. I can't say much about it. It was a pretty basic story. time to crack open book two. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brandi Rae | 12/21/2013

    " Fun and not too spooky, perfect for a kid looking for a not so scary Halloween book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chloe | 10/29/2013

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Matthew | 10/28/2013

    " This was another book by Cornelia Funke that I enjoyed quite a bit. What was different about this one was the lack of a lot of complications that can derail a book like that. Great for middle grade readers. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joyce | 10/27/2013

    " Considering this a young adult book it was really good. It was a different type for the younger kids, clean and not too scary. I'm going to recommend this to my niece. "

    " I read this book because I love Cornelia Funke, and I couldn't find any other books by her. I had already read The Inkheart Trilogy, Dragon Rider, and Igraine the Brave. For a children's book, I found this extremely entertaining. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Terry | 9/14/2013

    " what can I say, my daughter loves scary stories... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nan | 9/10/2013

    " J. K. Rowling has nothing on Cornelia Funke. This is another good series from the creator of Inkheart. It has a predictable plot (good for early readers) and some very original characters. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mikaela | 6/15/2013

    " read this book a while ago, i liked it alot, but not enough to complete the series, tom is afraid of his basement, and when he finds that there is a ghost down there he freaks! but him and the ghost become friends when they both have an even bigger ghost problem on their hands. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kelly Nielsen | 3/25/2013

    " Probably great for the target audience. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brenda | 7/9/2012

    " Overall a fun read. I was a little hesitant at first. Not sure where she was going to go with the story line but pleasantly surprised and loved the dynamics between Tom and his older sister. A definite read for children who enjoy stories that are a bit spooky but not over the top. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Oliver | 5/8/2012

    " I liked that this book was scary. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Hannah | 5/3/2012

    " I read this sometime in 5th grade during my battle of the books. It was pretty good. The author managed to make a story about a ghost catcher creative and very funny. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jill | 4/28/2012

    " I just felt so-so about this one, so I quit listening to it. Had some impressive vocab words in it, though. I didn't like the whiney ghost and the other characters, either, but I think that kids would probably get it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marty Miracky | 3/29/2012

    " This was a cute book. It's a quick read and is entertaining all the way thru. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ranell | 12/2/2011

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Emily | 3/22/2011

    " Started reading this aloud to my 5 year old, but he lost interest (more appropriate for upper grades for sure). Anyway, my 9 year old grabbed it out of the library bag and proceeded to read it cover to cover, and has since finished the second one.

    Cute idea. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Camille | 10/30/2010

    " Boy helps a misplaced ghost recover his home. Shades of Eva Ibbotson. A sweet story but with out Ibbotson's canny humor. Nice narration and character voices. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Paige | 3/8/2010

    " A really fun book for those mid-elementary kids. As clever and well-crafted as I would expect from Cornelia Funke, but aimed at a younger audience than the "Ink books." "
