REVIEW: Took: A Ghost Story

As we creep closer to Halloween, it seems only fitting that we take a look at a ghost story from the Elementary and Middle-Grade Speculative Fiction category. (And isn’t that cover art SUPER creepy? Yipes.) Today’s review of Took: A Ghost Story by Mary Downing Hahn is brought to you by Round 1 judge Mark Buxton, aka sixth-grade language arts teacher Mr. Buxton of Buxton’s Fantasy and Science Fiction Novels. On his blog, he also posts about adventure novels and realistic fiction. In his review of Took, he says:

“I love this author’s books! Her ghost stories are eerie and spooky, but they can easily be read ย and enjoyed by middle grade students. She allows readers to know what the evil character is thinking, as Erica falls into her trap.”
