Monster Busters

Publisher: Barrington Stoke

Review

Rosa loves ghost trains so she is very excited when the fair comes to town. Her friend Ivan doesn't want to go on the ghost train with her because he is scared. This is very lucky for Rosa as the ghost train turns out to be even more scary than she expected and Ivan has to save her!

When Rosa and Ivan return to school they think things will be safe but things do not go as planned. The head teacher introduces them to their new teacher Mr Troll. The children laugh when they hear their new teacher's name but they soon realise that they shouldn't be laughing and their teacher is an unusual creature. The school trip the children are taken on also has some unexpected excitement in store!

Four stories featuring the friends Rosa and Ivan are told in an interesting way using accessible language. The carefully spaced text and dyslexia friendly font mean that this book is accessibly to a wide range of readers.
