This fresh, funny launch of the 43 Old Cemetery Road series introduces I.B. Grumply, a cranky children's book author with writer's block, rents a. But 43 Old Cemetery Road is already occupied by eleven-year-old Seymour, his cat written by Kate Klise with illustrations by M. Sarah Klise. 43 Old Cemetery Road 01 Dying To Meet You by Kate Klise available in Hope and the vivacious, “old as dirt” writer-ghost Olive C. Spence.
And the boy and ghost are grumpy that they have to share with Grumply. This book is filled with letters written between all the characters over that magical summer. Can Grumply make friends with his housemates, and write his book?? I think this is one of the most charming and fun children's stories I've ever read!
The concept is creative and cute. The illustrations are just as much a part of the story as the text itself. This was fun to read!! There are seven books in this series and I will definitely be reading them all. I think the cutest thing about the story is that all the names are puns: Beans private Investigator and I. Definitely 5 star rating from me Told exclusively through written communications, this book features letters, newspaper articles, and drawings.
Each character This is a quick, breezy read that will appeal to children of all ages, particularly reluctant readers or those struggling with a lack of illustrations. Each character is given their own type font so it is easy to keep the characters separate.
Grumply types his letters on his computer, Seymour writes his by hand and Olive uses a breezy, light font that is lovely, but still formal. The illustrations are simple pen-and-ink drawings that could have been drawn by a child as Seymour is supposed to have drawn themas well as small drawings accompanying the newspaper articles in the book.
