Dixie O'Day and the Haunted House

Publisher: Red Fox

Review

When Dixie O'Day and his friend Percy decide to go on a camping trip, they have rather different ideas about where they should go and what they need to take with them.

After a shaky start, things seem to be going well for the pair until an unexpected storm leaves them without shelter and they have to resort to seeking help in a rather creepy-looking, old house.

Presented as a small-format paperback ideal for little hands, this first 'chapters' book is a good place to start building confidence with independent reading. Plentiful illustrations complement the text and provide atmosphere and humour as well as assisting with comprehension of the story. Additional activities, quizzes and author interviews also add interest.
