 Dear Penny

I read your book 'The Weekend Ghost' and I finished it when my brother was playing rugby. I really enjoyed it. My favourite bit was right at the end because it was a happy ending to a brilliant story. Yours faithfully

Esther (Yr 3/4 Foulds School, Barnet)

P.S. Please keep writing ghost stories because they're really interesting.


A review by Jennifer, aged 11, Yorkshire

This is a perfect book about five children. Their names are ZoŽ, Lauren, Jake, Sara and Robert. My favourite character was Sara because she believed ZoŽ and tried to communicate with the ghost. I think Robert should be a little more friendly. Other than that the book was great.

As soon as I started this book I could not put it down. I was up in bed till half past eleven reading when I fell asleep with the book in my hands. When I woke up I started reading again. At nine I put the book down, got dressed and picked it up again. I read it walking down the stairs to the kitchen for breakfast. That shows how good the book is.


A review by Rozena, age 11+1/6

I really liked this book because it showed the love that families have for one another.

I thought that the vocabulary that was used was a very wide range and that it had an equal balance of narrative, dialogue and description. I really like stories that have a horror theme, and although this book wasn't the type where your best friend tries to kill you, I found it really good and I shall recommend it to all my friends.

'You can't put it down!'
