Book Three of the Babysitter Out of Control! Series
From the Critics:
"In keeping with the other two books in the series, this is a quick-paced, plot-driven novel aimed at children new to the world of chapter books. The illustrations are bright and colourful, with the right amount of spookiness for a young reader. Recommended." CM: Canadian Review of Materials, Feb. 17, 2012
Selected one of the Spooky Young CanLit Reads for Halloween.
