Alexander’s class is going on a field trip to an amusement park. Everyone is excited — until they find out they’re going to SAFETY Land! Before the students take a ride on the Slow and Steady Teacups, a weird magician tells them there’s a haunted roller coaster at the park. And Alexander starts seeing odd scratch marks all over the place. Is there REALLY a ghost at Safety Land? The S.S.M.P. is about to find out!

{My thoughts} – Alexander, Rip and Nikki get to go on a field trip. They are going to an amusement park. They are incredibly happy and excited and can’t wait to get there. I mean, if I were them at their age, I’d have been pretty excited too!

Once they get there though they learn they are at a place called Safety Land and that there is really nothing fun about it at all. It is literally boosted to be the safest place ever. Alexander starts noticing small things going on though that makes him think a monster is involved.

He starts to voice his concern to all his friends and they think he is making things up, but they aren’t completely sure though. Eventually, they all end up on the same page and realize that something is going on and that things really don’t make sense without the explanation of a monster being involved.

I enjoyed reading this book and getting to know about Alexander and his friends. I also like that the author has added a new character into the class that will now have the opportunity to be a part of the crew. I am fairly certain that she is going to be a part of the monster hunting group!

I look forward to reading the next book in the series very soon!

Final Conclusion: 5 Star Rating.
