My recommendations for Operation Story Share the next two weeks should get us all in the mood for Halloween. This week’s story isn’t very scary, but it is set in a haunted house and that’s enough to get my whiskers tingling.
My Haunted House by Angie Sage is a fun story written for the younger side of middle grade. Here’s what the back of the book says:
This house is not for sale!
Araminta Spookie lives in a wonderful old haunted house, but her crabby aunt Tabby wants to move. Aunt Tabby is determined to sell their house—Araminta has to stop her!
With the help of a haunted suit of armor named Sir Horace, a ghost named Edmund, and a lot of imagination, Araminta hatches a plot for an Awful Ambush that is so ghoulish, it just might work!
I loved the haunted suit of armor and the ghost, but my favorite part of My Haunted House was the house itself. Of course it has a super-cool secret passage. Not to mention its size—Araminta has a bedroom for every day of the week! This is just the type of house a curious cat like me would love to explore.
And I think you might like to explore the Araminta Spookie series by Angie Sage, beginning with My Haunted House.
Stay tuned for next week, when I’ll recommend an even spookier story!
