Eerie Elementary is having a science fair. Sam, Antonio, and Lucy are hard at work on their projects when they find a strange, old book. Suddenly, the school comes alive! The ground shakes, science projects explode, and the school gym turns into a giant volcano! How will Sam and his friends fight hot lava? And what is hidden in that strange, old book?

{My thoughts} – Sam, Antonio and Lucy are about to take part in the science fair. This is the first science fair that the school has hosted in seven years. It is said that something bad had happened then and now something bad seems to be happening now. The three children go to the library to find a book so that they can decide on what they want as their science fair project. It turns out that they end up finding a very special book and all three choose their projects from within the pages of the book.

This book seemed a little more faced paced to me then the previous books in this series did, which helped in keeping me reading until the end. Sometimes, I end up putting down a book for a bit and then picking it back up later in the day. That wasn’t the case this time. This time I read the entire thing in one sitting, which didn’t take long at all, and I wasn’t interrupted much either. Emma my seven month old seemed to enjoy being read too. She was rather interested in the book and kept trying to turn the pages while I was reading.

I enjoyed this book and I think it added a little more to the continuing storyline. I also think that the characters are very likable as is the language etc in which they communicate with one another. I enjoyed reading this book and am looking forward to reading the next in the series so that I can learn even more about Orson Eerie and see what it is that he is up too and what is end plan is going to be when it comes to the completion of the series.

Final Conclusion: 5 Star Rating.
