Kid Review: Ghost Pirate Treasure

Kid Review: Ghost Pirate Treasure

Creepella Von Cacklefur Ghost Pirate Treasure

Creepella investigates mysterious holes around Squeakspeare’s mansion – could legendary pirate Morgan Blackwhisker be searching for his lost buried treasure?

Lily says:

I really like it! The Creepella books are WAY funny!

Personally, I’m a fan of “WAY funny!” so I’m going to give this one a try. I’ve read Geronimo Stilton’s books about himself and his sister Thea, but have not read any about Creepella von Cacklefur, a journalist just like Geronimo…but creepy! Author: Geronimo Stilton

Geronimo Stilton. He’s an author. He’s a mouse. He solves mysteries. If you like Geronimo and Creepella, try Hermux Tantamoq, a watchmaker mouse who also stumbles into mysteries and solves them.

Jasmine says:

I love this story bcause it tells a story about a little girl that loses her mother. This is not the good. This is the good part – her father finds true love again and he gets married. his daugher was kind of happy for him. I love this story so much I read like 20 times already. I hope one day you will read and love it just like me. i hoped you enjoyed it. Author: Kate DiCamillo
