Publisher's Summary

Nine-year-old Tom Tomsky can't catch a break. He's a klutz, his sister Lola pretty much hates his guts, and (this is a big "and") he just found a ghost camping out in his cellar. Lucky for Tom, his grandma's best friend just happens to be the world's foremost ghosthunter. Under her expert tutelage, Tom learns the tools of the trade, which just happen to include buckets of graveyard dirt, and soon finds he has to face down not just the ASG (Averagely Spooky Ghost) in the basement, but the IRG (Incredibly Revolting Ghost) in town...all while keeping the nettlesome Lola off his trail.

My daughter's first review...

So I did not get to listen to this book as my 6 year old daughter finished it in one sitting. SHE wants to review it though so what follows is her words, I am merely the typist.
" I liked the book because I really like ghosts and because I liked the A.S.G. (Averagely Spooky Ghosts) and I liked the I.R.G. (Incredebly Revolting Ghost). I liked the song the I.R.G. sang when he was playin on the piano. The I.R.G. was really funny. I liked the A.S.G.'s name because it sounded neat. And I liked how the A.S.G. scared the mean sister."

(translation by Dad)
My daughter LOVED this book, it really caught her imagination and she is dying to get the second in the series. I could hear her laughing and squealing from her room the entire time she listened to the book. She thought the characters were really funny and she became quite invested in their lives and story. Note to parents: while in the end everything turned out well, there were points in the book that worked her imagination to the point that she got a little scared. The next night she said that she was too scared to sleep alone, but when I told her that if the book scared her that much she could not get the second...that ended that thought...but I do think that there were points in the book that were a little scary, so I suggest not letting young children listen to it at night. :)

We love the narration puts you right in the story.

We love this series. Perfect narration and definitely a listen for young ones to banish their fear of ASGs.
