    • This rating isn't really mine, per se (though I also thought it was entertaining). Both my fifth and sixth grade students loved this book and for their age, it's the most hilarious thing ever. The humor is exactly right for them. I had to lock up the book so students wouldn't try to take it and read ahead of our class read aloud. I mean, what a great thing to have to lock up though. I think that speaks volumes.


    • One of my favorite books as a young kid was Sideway Stories from Wayside School and Scary School reminded me a lot of that book!! It was similar in layout and style but completely different in content! In Scary School by Derek the Ghost you have chapters pretty much dedicated to getting to know the characters!! Each one is about someone Derek is talking about but then they flow easily in to the next chapter!! I had a really great time reading this book!! The characters are all fun, unique and bi [...]

    • Scary School by Derek The Ghost, author Derek Taylor Kent and Illustrated by Scott M. Fisher, is the story of a year in a truly unusual school. I know of no other school that has a moat and a drawbridge. It is a place where a T. rex who wears a blue dress is both the librarian and detention room monitor. Another staff member, Mr Turtlesnaps claims to have been a friend of Darwin as well as being the recipient of his books. The book is narrated by Derek. an eleven year old ghost who is unable to [...]


    • Lately I’ve been wanting to read humorous books and I was lucky enough to have a copy of Scary School to read through. Not only was this highly entertaining but I got quite a few laughs from it too.I really loved the illustrations in Scary School. It added in that extra layer of awesomeness but at the same time it was really funny. I particularly enjoyed the first picture of Charles Nukid. There were of course many other brilliant images throughout the book.Most of the book was introducing the [...]


    • Amazing book that I am sure elementary and middle aged kids will love and even some of us that are still children at heart. Fun and entertaining this book will have you laughing from the first chapter. The characters are very fun and unique and had me smiling at their humorous antics at every turn of the page. My favorite character has to be Penny Possum and Charles Nukid their little adventure together was very cute and of course filled with lots of chuckles. Give your kids a great book that wi [...]


    • There's so much good material in this school that the author created! I would say that I didn't so much care about the plot of the school competition so much as I enjoyed hearing about all the different stories and their histories. Very silly and spooky. Definitely a fun one to read aloud to my 7-year-old!

    • There was a T-rex with a blue dress. It's about a bunch of scary teachers and scary kids that are trying to make the school scarier by winning a competition. I liked that it was funny and scary. (age 7)


    • READ THE ORIGINAL AND COMPLETE REVIEW (AND MANY MORE) AT WORD SPELUNKINGI dove right into Scary School as soon as it arrived in the mail! I mean, I couldn’t resist that fun cover and that wicked cool trailer and song! As you can tell, I LOVED this book! It’s pretty much made of awesome. Written and narrated by Derek the Ghost, an 11 year old former attendee at Scary School who died a year ago in a science lab accident…but don’t worry, he’s kinda cool with it. Derek the Ghost recounts t [...]


    • Scary School achieves a new level of awesome!! Ghost-kid Derek is looking for peace in halls filled with goons, ghouls, and monsters of every kind. This school is Topsy-turvy, where the uniform is not wearing the uniform and you're taught by vampires and zombies, nearly eaten by a giant squid on your first day, and detained in detention by an old-lady T-Rex that you certainly don't want to be dining with. How could you not want to attend? This book is totally my little brothers' humor, and I tho [...]


    • Do you remember your first day at a new school? It was a scary experience, wasn’t it? You didn’t know anybody, you didn’t know where anything is at, and just your luck you had the really mean teacher with the hairy wart on her nose. Well, welcome to Scary School where a hairy wart is the least of your worries. That’s because at Scary School regular boys and girls attend class with scary kids, and those classes are taught by scary teachers.Yeah, you heard me…head crushing, blood sucking [...]


    • In the last several months, I’ve been on an exhaustive search for age-appropriate books to read to my seven-year-old son. I love to read aloud to him, but so many of the books that are age-appropriate bore me to tears and don’t really keep his attention as well as they should. As a result, I’ve done an exhaustive search of Google, the library and the big book stores to find something that would capture his imaginationd maybe a little of my own imagination, too.Scary School by Derek the Gho [...]

(1-don't bother; 2-satisfactory; 3-overall good; 4-highly recommend; 5-a must read)5, a must read!What do you like and not like about the book?I liked that the author used very descriptive words so I can really see the pictures in my head.  The thing I didn't like about it was absolutely nothing!What's your favorite part?When Frank N. Stein showed up, that was very surprising.  I [...]


    • Have you ever wondered what it would be like to have a vampire or a dragon for a teacher? Or a hungry T. Rex for a detention monitor? Or maybe a principal who held the Ghoul Games and had the students get eaten by monster if they didn't win? OR your fellow classmates were werewolves and ghouls?Well, Charles Nukid is about to find out.Derek the Ghost's Scary School is a hilarious scholastic twist. It's a fun light read for all ages that will definitely make you smile throughout the day. The book [...]


    • Now you might be thinking that a book for Middle Grade isn't for you. That you're too old to enjoy a book entitled Scary School. That, my friends, is where you'd be wrong. I have no qualms at all with telling you straight out that I adored this book! Yes, I'm in my late twenties. You know what though? Derek the Ghost is one heck of a narrator, and the stories in this book are pure awesome. Fan girl ramblings shall now ensue. You've been warned.From page one Scary School is pure madness in the be [...]


    • Scary School is a variety of tales all told from the perspective Derek the Ghost. There is a cast of main characters including Charles Nukid, who just happens to be the "New Kid."

The teachers themselves are scary monsters, like Mr. Dragonbreath who is a dragon, and Ms. Fang the Vampire.In Scary School, the principal is a human with giant hands, and just happens to be called Principal Headcrush [...]


    • Scary School by Derek The Ghost is a wonderfully spooktacular book about middle grade students who attend an unusual school run by the things that go bump in the night. Not all the students are human themselves, some are very extraordinary. The school is run by Principal Headcrusher whose dream is to unite regular students with scary students. Derek The Ghost is the tour guide or narrator for this novel. He gives an up close and personal tour of not only the grounds at scary school but also the [...]


    • I knew this would be an "easy" read, being written for kids in the 3rd to 6th grade range, but I didn't expect it to be completely delightful! I started reading it and couldn't put it down. I read most of it at work. I work in a middle school and I plan on spreading the news about this clever, funny, and charming book about kids, monsters and humans attending school together. They learn valuable life lessons and learn most importantly, not to judge a book by it's cover. Don't judge a person by t [...]


    • Originally posted at my blog Chasing Empty PavementsThe Good: What a great book for Middle Graders!! If I had a kid in Middle School, this would surely be a book I would buy for them. It’s fun, creative and written at the perfect level for those kids who span several different levels of reading. I thought the illustrations were super cute and added so much to the book. I love that the author maintained the whole “Derek the Ghost” mentality throughout the book and I thought the creativeness [...]


    • It's probably impossible to describe how awesome this book is? So what if it's for kids and has illustrations in? That makes it even better!! It totally made my day :)Sample Illustrations by Scott FischerScary School is a book written by Derek the Ghost. After he died, he decided to write a book about Scary School.

    • Scary School sure is a crazy place! Poor "New Kid" Charles has no idea what's coming to him on the morning he first steps in front of Scary School, only to be greeted by the crazy giant squid living in the moat surrounding the building. Author Derek Kent (also known as Derek the Ghost) creates a fully imaginative world where the most mundane details become twisted and spooky, luring readers in to see just what will happen next at Scary School. This debut novel introduces us to all that Scary Sch [...]


    • Scary School would be the perfect book to read aloud to the class at the beginning of the new school year. As a teacher I’m always looking for that book that will hook my reluctant readers. This is that book. Imagine a school where monsters and humans go to school together. Imagine that all of your teachers are monsters. Hey, the students already think teachers are monsters for giving homework so this isn’t a far stretch of the imagination. Imagine you are on a tour of the school with your t [...]


    • Review done by Book Monster's Mom, Joanne. :-)Scary School, by Derek the Ghost, is one of the funniest, craziest books I have ever read. My grandson and I read every day as part of his homework and since my grandson is not an avid reader, I try to find books that will catch his attention. Well, catch his attention it did! We laughed through every page and he actually remembered everything that happened from one end of the book to the other! This is a testament in itself in how entertaining this [...]


    • My review as appeared on my blog, boystobooksFrom the moment you walk into Scary School, you know it may be the scariest year of your life. That is, if you make it through the first day without being eaten by your teacher, Mr. Dragonbreath, for not obeying all of his nearly impossible class rules. Even if you don't make it through alive, there's always the chance you might come back as a zombie or even a ghost. Being a ghost does have it's advantages, like being able to float around and write ab [...]


    • Overall Thoughts:This book was extremely funny!Scary School is a middle grade read, told by an 11 year old ghost named Derek the Ghost, who used to go to Scary school until he died but in a kid-friendly way. He talks about what goes on in Scary School, in a silly, comical way.The school is named Scary School for a reason, it's scary! It's filled with werewolves, vampires, zombies, giants, and even humans. There's: Ms. Fang (the vampire with one fang), Principal Headcrusher (lady with super stron [...]


    • Beneath the Moon and Stars ReviewThis was seriously the most hilarious book ever. It wasn't what I was expecting at all. At first I wasn't sure how I was gonna feel about this. It's middle grade. I rarely read middle grade. But I'm very glad I got a chance to read this. The storyline was fast paced and very unique . The characters were super cute and the pictures were great. When I first saw that there were pictures I thought that this book wasn't' for me. In the end I wanted to go find a ton of [...]


    • Every once in a while I like to go back to being a twelve-year-old again, when books like How to Eat Fried Worms and Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing were at the top of my reading list. It’s fun to just let go of the seriousness and bury yourself in a little nonsense. Scary School is exactly the type of book my twelve-year-old self would have devoured over and over.In this fun romp, eleven-year-old Derek the Ghost introduces us to Scary School, focusing on the new kid, aptly named Charles Nukid [...]


    • I don't think it is possible for me to adore this book any more. Faithful readers of my blog will now how much I adore Groosham Grange by Anthony Horowitz - Lord knows, I go on about it enough. If there are any fellow Groosham lovers out there, this book is for you. You'll certainly enjoy this! Many make the mistake - yes, I say mistake when there are books like this available - of completely dismissing middle-grade fiction and that's a real shame. I've read Shakespeare (more I've tried to), I'v [...]


    • My thoughts:Original, witty, clever, creative, silly, and a little twisted - all wrapped up in a great little story about what it means to be friends. It's filled with scary monsters, crazy humans, terrifying teachers, a bunch of dead kids and a load of life lessons. The kids will be laughing from the very start.I enjoyed the story. It's a bit silly for the adult in me, a bit twisted for the parent in me, and wonderful for the kid in me. I am sure that this book will be a huge hit with middle sc [...]
