Dying to Meet You by Kate Klise

Klise, Kate Dying to Meet You, illustrated by M. Sarah Klise, 154 p. Harcourt (Houghton), 2009. $15.00. Content: G. Ignatius B. Grumply needs to finish the 13th book in his Ghost Tamer series, but it has been 20 years of writer’s block instead. He moves to a Victorian house for some peace in quiet, but finds it already occupied by a boy, a cat and maybe a real ghost. And Grumply is responsible, unless the boy’s parents ask for him back at the end of the summer. Now his writing process is not only interrupted by the boy, but also by all kinds of mysterious thumpings and a very annoying someone who has commandeered his computer. If your students like the Klise sisters’ Regarding The... series, they will enjoy this new series even more! EL – ESSENTIAL. Cindy, Library-Teacher.
