"One of the best books I have ever read is 'The Trickster Ghost,' by Ellen Showell. It's about a boy named Stephen who just moved into his Grandma and Grandpa's house with his family. His grandparents moved out. They got settled in and things started to disappear one by one. Rachael blamed it on Stephen but it wasn't Stephen. IT WAS A GHOST. Rachael finally DTC believed Stephen because she saw the ghost. Then they get their things back."

" 'I Hate Camping' by P.J. Peterson is one of the best books I have ever read. It is about a boy named Dan who is forced to go camping with his mother's boyfriend, Mike, and his two kids. The tent keeps falling down, the canoe tips over, and weird nighttime noises give Dan the creeps. Will Dan go crazy? If he doesn't, will he make it home in one piece? I think you will like this story. It is a very good book."

"My favorite book is 'Beware of the Snowman.' This is a Goosebumps book. The author is R.L. Stine. I like this book because when I start reading the book it makes me want to write my own scary book. This is why I like 'Beware of the Snowman.' "
