About the Book: Imagine Garth Hale's surprise when he's accidentally zapped to the spirit world by Frank Gallows, a washed-out ghost wrangler. Suddenly Garth finds he has powers the ghosts don't have, and he's stuck in a world run by the evil ruler of Ghostopolis, who would use Garth's newfound abilities to rule the ghostly kingdom. When Garth meets Cecil, his grandfather's ghost, the two search for a way to get Garth back home, and nearly lose hope until Frank Gallows shows up to fix his mistake.
Our Take: When I got this title in the mail I immediately gave it over to my 7-year old son. He read through it in one night! Straight through. He was really into it. This graphic novel gives us a paranormal story of a Ghostworld and a fantastic tale that deals with matters life and death. He couldn't stop glowing about the artwork and the story. I found the title to be very enjoyable and certainly one that is worth purchasing. Graphic novels are a great way to get kids to read, even if they're hesitant to do so. The visual aspect of the medium is a wonderful bonus and Ghostopolis is tops in our book!
