My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Moving to a new town is never all too easy. It’s something that Andres has gotten used to though since his scientist parents have a top-secret job working for the government. They move all the time! Andres just wants life to be normal. The town of Kersville is no ordinary place though. When some rather strange, unexplained things begin to happen in his new home, Andres realizes that he just might need the services of the kooky kid he met who lives next door, Desmond Cole of Ghost Patrol. The two become fast friends as they begin their first ghostly adventure. Who said things had to be normal?

This first book in the Desmond Cole Ghost Patrol series is sure to be a hit with my students. It is the perfect introduction to a book that is just a little bit spooky, mixed with a healthy dose of humor and just enough ick, slime, and goo to please every reader. I really appreciate the balance of text and illustrations and am confident that this will be popular among our emergent chapter book readers and veterans alike. The illustrations are awesomely appealing and I can see even my most reluctant readers being drawn to it. I liken this series to another favorite of ours, The Notebook of Doom by Troy Cummings. I can’t wait to add each one of the Desmond Cole Ghost Patrol books to my library for my students to enjoy. It’s just what we’ve been looking for.
