It is all Orson Eerie's doing! The mad scientist is planning to strike once again -- at the annual Kickball Showdown! And he wants the hall monitors out of his way FOR GOOD. Will the principal fire them?! They need to come up with a plan FAST -- before the big game! This will be the friends' biggest, baddest, dustiest battle yet!
About the Author
Matt Loveridge likes to draw subjects that expose the lighter side of life, so he loves illustrating children's books! Looniverse was the first children's book series he illustrated. Matt lives in Utah with his beautiful, supportive wife and their three rambunctious kids (who are a constant source of inspiration!).
"A good fit for readers not quite ready for... Goosebumps." -- Booklist
Praise for The School Is Alive! (Eerie Elementary #1):
"The plot and twisted storyline will serve the beginning chapter book reader well. Word choice, action, and crisp sketches support the story, allowing early readers to develop ideas and easily follow the plot." -- Library Media Connection
"Give this early chapter book to readers who want something scary but aren't ready for the 'Goosebumps' or 'Scream Street' series." -- School Library Journal
"Readers who relish the action of Dav Pilkey's Ricky Ricotta series and... R.L. Stine's Rotten School titles may want to enroll at Eerie Elementary." -- Booklist
"Chabert hits just the right horror note for transitional readers... This [is] a worthy and creepy addition to the Branches series." -- Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
