Mixing colourful, descriptive imagery with plentiful dialogue, Dowding creates an excitingly spooky tale. Add Daigle's ghostly drawings, and readers will be enthralled with this second novel in the Weird Stories Gone Wrong series.
Dowding’s second Weird Stories Gone Wrong is a . . . carefully written Goosebumps from north of the border.
A ghost dog (and owner), a monster made of fog, and a desolate stretch of road on a dark and stormy night are good set ups for some genuinely spooky storytelling.
Quill & Quire
An effective bridge for readers who are new to the genre or who aren’t yet ready to transition to the wider body of supernatural and speculative fiction.
The “Weird Stories Gone Wrong” series is a good series for reluctant readers. They are the book equivalent of a tame campfire ghost story, with vivid imagery, simple presentation and fast pacing.
This book is a delicious, spine-chilling treat for middle grade readers.
