Title: St Grizzle's School for Girls, Ghosts and Runaway Grannies
Author: Karen McCombie
Stars: 5 out of 5
I sat down with my daughters age 8 and 6. Now My 8 year old reads at a 6th grade level so she wanted to read this to herself. Instead I made it our nightly reading setting aside Nancy Drew while she was dealing with a murder.
This book had my girls and I laughing so hard at night that we all wanted to finish it the same day. This book is chaotic, fun, so many laughs and my daughter wants to read it again and again.
Thank you Netgalley for the advance Copy. My girls loved it and we plan to read more by this author.
When local schools are asked to make a film showcasing the surrounding area, Dani and the rest of St Grizzle’s set to work. But Spencer and his mates at the village school are determined to sabotage the work of the smelly Grizzlers.
To Dani’s surprise, help comes in the form of Granny Viv who has secretly taken up residence in the school’s tree house with Downboy the dog. Together they come up with the perfect ghostly video ... but will Granny Viv be able to stay once the competition’s over?
