    This was so great! Fun to have a horror book for beginning chapter book readers. Spanish is included throughout, lots of fun video game references, spooky without being too intense for younger readers. I think this would appeal to a wide range of readers really. Malia, Ivan and Dante are highly entertaining characters with distinct personalities. What fun to have cousins teaming up like this! I love the way Harper includes end of chapter notes to celebrate how far you've read. I'm so pleased the This was so great! Fun to have a horror book for beginning chapter book readers.

It's wonderful to see Bowles writing for this age group as well. Really well done and fun. I'd read more of these for sure!

    A slightly spooky, action-packed adventure with Latinx protagonists in an early chapter book? Sign me up! There is a definite need for these stories with diverse representation (particularly #ownvoices stories) and I know it will be super popular with my kiddos, especially those who already love Eerie Elementary and the Notebook of Doom. *Thank you to Edelweiss+ and the publisher for the digital copy*

    culturally sensitive though funny book. for middle school readers wanting a bit more in a story . the most sensitive readers might find it a bit scary, but that shouldn't stop the majority of youngsters.

    A good, adventurous beginner chapter book. Malia, Dante, and Ivan are three cousins staying with their Aunt for the summer. They head to the water park on the first day, but take a wrong turn (after some bad advice) and end up on 13th street, in another dimension. They must work together to figure out how to get back. I would definitely recommend to fans of Eerie Elementary and Notebook of Doom fans. I like that the girl is the leader, and the POC representation.

Al the Harper Chapters books count down the chapters, which can be good for some readers. I like that this book celebrates the progress instead of making it seem like reading is a chore.

    Cousins Malia, Dante, and Ivan are excited to spend the summer at Aunt Lucy's house. Little do they know that an ordinary trip to the water park is about to get exciting when they take shortcut recommended to them by a suspicious old lady... Smart and diverse characters, a cool video gamesque premise for defeating the villains, good secondary characters like Omi, and cute illustrations make this a winning new chapter book series. Perfect for October and spooky season!

    I don't love it, but I know a lot of kids who will. Some of the analogies in it were abrupt and I didn't love the pacing, however for its reading level it's on par with other similar series. Will definitely be recommending the rest of the series for the library collection, but I won't be reading the rest of them myself.

    Our 2nd and 3rd grade readers are always looking for spooky books - and this is perfectly not-too-scary! Also loved the little dots motivating kids to see how many chapters they’d finished at the end of each chapter, and at the end of the book it even declares how many words they read total once they finished. Super cool and unique - reluctant readers will love this feature!

    September 2020 - short chapters, lots of excitement, and frequent illustrations. This made a fun real-aloud over the course of a few nights, and Ben was excited to get the next one in the series. A touch scary, but not too much for my 2nd grader. Main characters are all Latinx.

    Ridiculous premise and characters that are a bit flat (although that's just an early chapter book for you), but this does have some diversity and a bit of spooky action. It seemed kind of stilted, but would probably appeal to kids who want something fast-paced and like The Notebook of Doom.

    Reviewing an ARC from Harper Chapters. My 8 year old nephew will freakin love this. It's about kids, who battle bats, whose weapon is bad breath. What's not to like? Since it's the introductory volume of a series, some of the book is about setting up the characters and location. That's done fairly efficiently and then they're off to the races. It's a quick story, but the kids are all quite different from each other. So it's entertaining to see them interact. The action is a good balance of scary a Reviewing an ARC from Harper Chapters. My 8 year old nephew will freakin love this. It's about kids, who battle bats, whose weapon is bad breath. What's not to like? Since it's the introductory volume of a series, some of the book is about setting up the characters and location. That's done fairly efficiently and then they're off to the races. It's a quick story, but the kids are all quite different from each other. So it's entertaining to see them interact. The action is a good balance of scary and silly. And there's plenty of mystery set up for future volumes. Harper Chapters also has their eye on formatting the books to encourage new chapter book readers. In particular (I think) readers who may be struggling. There's a progress bar at the end of every chapter, 4th wall breaking encouragement from characters and a page of metrics at the end. Apparently this book has 5118 words. I think for some kids this may foster feelings of accomplishment. (I, for one, do love checking off a task finished.) I do fear others might "know what you're up to" and feel patronized. So the lesson here would be know the reader you are buying for. If these features work for them, I suspect they will work well.

    Closer to a 3.5 or 3.75 *I read the Advanced Readers Copy, thanks to HarperCollins. The simplistic style was a little lost on me but I loved the creativity. The best part of this book is the representation! David Bowles includes Mexican traditions, cultural items, and even some Spanish. This is perfect for my students in Texas!
