As far as kids books go, can't go wrong with this book or any other book in this series.

Short children's book about a cranky/sic Great-Aunt and a ghost. Very simplistic, would probably be good for an Elementary school aged child.

A silly series that creates more questions than it answers. It's great for formulating theories as well as predictions. The class dynamics should be very familiar to those of the Magic School Bus generation.

Eddie's Great-aunt Mathilda is sick and he has to help take care of her. But when Eddie and his friends visit Mathilda's house, strange things start to happen. Howie sees someone staring at him from the attic window and, when his back is turned, his garlic potato chips are used to spell the word ATTIC on the ground. During later visits the kids hear noises from the attic, but Great-aunt Mathilda swears there's nothing up there. Could the ghost of Eddie's Great-uncle Jasper, who died years ago, be haunting his aunt's home? The Bailey School kids will find out!… (more)

When potato chips begin forming secret messages on the floor of Aunt Matilda's house, there must be a ghost behind this spooky business
