{Synopsis} – 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!

{My thoughts} – Araminta Spookie Lives in her very own haunted house with her Aunt Tabby and her Uncle Drac. She is an unusual girl that appears to have a different room in the house for a bedroom each day of the week. Since she is the only child that lives there she finds different ways to occupy her time. A lot of the things she likes to do, though end up getting her in trouble with her Aunt Tabby.

One morning her Aunt Tabby is in a mood and decides that she is fed up with the house they live in and want to sell it and move into an apartment. Every time her Aunt Tabby has someone come to look at the house Araminta {Minty} does what she can to make them leave or scare them off or sway them into not being interested in the house.

Eventually a family called The Wizzard’s come to look at the house. Minty has a plan to scare them off, but they just end up falling in love with the house more and more. Eventually, the table’s turn in Minty’s favor.

If you’d like to know what happens you need to read the book. I think that this is a wonderful book that could make a great addition to a bedtime ritual. It also sort of gives me the feel of Hotel Transylvania {The Movie Series} because of the way the characters are written and the way in which the story is unwound. I look forward to reading more books in this series in the very near future.

Final Conclusion: 5 Star Rating.
