{Synopsis} – Is there a ghost in Treetopolis? Eva sure thinks so!

This series is part of Scholastic’s early chapter book line called Branches, which is aimed at newly independent readers. With easy-to-read text, high-interest content, fast-paced plots, and illustrations on every page, these books will boost reading confidence and stamina. Branches books help readers grow!

In this second book in the series, Eva sees a ghost! Or at least, she thinks she does . . . With her friend Lucy by her side, Eva goes in search of the ghost. Eek! This owl-dorable series will appeal to girls who love stories about animals and friendship!

{My thoughts} – This book started out like the first telling all about Eva. The things she likes and dislikes and where she lives. It’s always nice when the author takes the time to help remind readers of previous world building in previous books.

In this book Eva claims she’s seeing a ghost after her teacher had told the class a scary story. She goes out to hunt the ghost, but had problems proving that it’s real. She tries to take a picture but is so scared that the picture ends up blurry.

Eventually one night at school her class here’s a loud sound on the roof. They then look out the window and come to the conclusion that the ghosts are real. She manages to get her whole class to go on a ghost hunt with her.

I like how this book takes something scary for many children and helps to show them that things aren’t always as they may first appear. Eva thought she’d been seeing ghost but really it was just more owls like her. She learned that sometimes your mind and brain can play tricks on you, but it’s always a good idea to keep an open mind to other interpretations.

I really like this book series. The illustrations are colorful, it’s simple to read and is written in a childlike diary formation. I think any child that wants to read will easily fall in love with these books.

Final Conclusion: 5 Star Rating.
