Horn Book Review

In Canceled, a planned demolition of Eerie Elementary could spread the spirit Orson Eerie's power through the whole town. In Fired, the school's resident ghost gets the hall-monitor protagonists fired from their duties in an attempt to devour students at the Kickball Showdown. Mild frights abound in these seventh and eighth installments; the creepy atmosphere is bolstered by black-and-white illustrations throughout.
