When five fifth graders from Shawmont Elementary are assigned the entertainment section of their school's fall festival, the children decide to put on a play that will be remembered for generations. But putting on the play will come with more challenges than expected. The children must take on the task of preparing the school's old abandoned auditorium for the play.
With an auditorium that looks like something out of a horror movie, filled with decades of ghostly tales and years of disuse, the children have their hands tied. But when strange things start taking place inside the auditorium and their friends disappear one by one, they must get to the bottom of the mystery surrounding the auditorium, if they wish to put on their play in time for the Fall Festival. Will they solve the mystery in time, or will it be too late and their friends claimed by the strange happenings inside the auditorium?
What made the experience of listening to The Ghost of Shawmont the most enjoyable?
The details inthe descriptions. I could actually visualize what the characters looked like and what was going on.
Who was your favorite character and why?
I liked them all. Each one had an important piece to the puzzle.
Any additional comments?
I love how at the beginning of the book, we got a description of all the characters. It actually gave me a visual of each one and I could picture. In fact all the descriptive words used in the story made me feel like I was actually watching the story live. Listening to the story, I felt like I went back in time. It reminded me of a modern day Scooby Doo carton ( I loooovvveee Scooby Doo). I think these mystery stories are a great genre for kids today. It wasn’t too scary and it peaked my interest throughout the story. I couldn’t wait to find out what the end turnout was going to be.
