Haunted Mystery
review 1: This third installment of Chris Grabenstein's "Haunted Mystery" series, starring ghost-seer Zack Jennings, is an awesomely exciting, suspenseful story of adventure and mystery set at a haunted middle school, with ghosts, murders, zombies, voodoo, and a great assortment of fascinating characters, both good and evil. All this sounds pretty scary, but it's also really funny, a tale obviously written by someone with a terrific sense of humor. I found this book to be enthralling, very hard to put down, and I'd recommend it to readers age 9 and up (and, yes, that includes adults) who enjoy a good supernatural mystery/thriller.
review 2: As far as I'm concerned, Chris Grabenstein can just keep writing as many books starring Zack Jennings as he wants, & I'll gladly kee
... morep reading them - & recommending them, especially to middle-grade kids who like their reading creepy. Zack's new house has been repaired from the damage sustained in some earlier adventures, & now he's going to be starting 6th grade at the school his dad went to. He's hoping to make a lot of new friends & have a fresh start - but the friends he had in mind weren't dead. Unfortunately, this is one very haunted middle school. But Zack does make some new (living) friends to help him out in solving what has caused the awakening of a zombie on school property, as well as his beloved stepmother & some old (non-living) friends. The scary is well-tinged with humor, & the characters are great. It's impossible not to like Zack. less

Well, if you like zombies and killing people this is the book for you!
Wasn't as good as the first one, but still intriguing.
Another great Zack and Zipper story. Lots of fun.
A little too graphic for me...
A wonderful book for children.
