    I love old books Any sort And there are few places better to troll for great old books than thriftshops A couple times a month I set out with 5 or so in my pocket to visit all the local thriftshops looking for interesting books Some of my best finds are old often out of print middle grade booksthe type I used to beg my parents to buy for me from those book order forms in elementary school I am in total nostalgic bliss when I find a bunch of old Scholastic books I bring them home and read them then donate the books to my local library They resell them at their book sales I'm surethen someone else gets to enjoy them The library makes money to buy new books and someone else gets to enjoy a great kid's book Win winMy latest find is a Scholastic book Ghosts Who Went to School first printed in 1966 with a reprint in 1989 I checked and although the book is currently out of print it is readily available to purchase online I found prices ranging from 33 cents plus postage to 549 with free shipping So not expensive My copy was well loved with three children's names scrawled on the inside of the front cover dutifully crossed out when the book passed to a new owner I hope they all enjoyed the story as much as I didGhosts Who Went to School was written by Judith Spearing The book has a follow up The Museum House Ghosts The Author just passed away in January 2017 and is fondly remembered for her two children's booksThe basics Wilbur and Mortimer Temple are ghosts They live in the old Temple House the abandoned old house that everyone says is haunted because it is Their mother and father live there tooa happy ghost family But the boys are bored Haunting the same house day after day can get a little tiresoome They decide to go to school Wilber joins Mrs Hartley's third grade class While he means well having an invisible student in class can be disruptive When Mrs Hartley grades Wilbur's first spelling test she finds his spelling is atrocious so she knows even ghost boys need to be in school They reach an agreement Wilbur must be visible for roll call and while he is answering uestions in classbut he can be invisible the rest of the time as long as it isn't disruptive to the other students So Wilbur and Mortimer blend right in despite the fact that they're ghosts Can they also solve the problem of the local bank that wants to sell their house?The story is well written and incredibly cute Wilbur's classmates accept him and like having him as part of their class Mortimer enjoys school as well They get into a bit of trouble but never for being mean spirited They help non athletic kids make points in basketball assist classmates with math and do a bit of invisible gardening to scare bankers Nothing mean or destructive It's just a happy age appropriate story This would be a great book for kids in 2nd to 5th grade Lots of humor and great lessons The book has cute illustrations as wellThis is a book I think Scholastic should reprint again Kids at my son's elementary would love this story Now that I've reviewed it my copy is going to our local library I hope that soon it has a 4th name scrawled on the inside of the front cover and gets many readings before it wears out It definitely gave me a couple hours of joy There's nothing like a happy entertaining children's book A fun happy readI'm now on the look out for the second book The Museum House Ghosts I want to read about the other adventures of Wilbur and Mortimer

    The story is very entertaining and wonderful for children from grades third to fifth The ghost Wilbur attends school and all kinds of interesting things happenI own the original version published in 1966 I bought the book because I thought the story would be fun to read The catch? I lived in Puerto Rico and my English skills were very very limited So I actually didn't read the book until years later after I had moved to the United StatesI am a collector of children's books

    This is one of my favorite books from my own childhood it was published in 1966 and I remember being uite touched by Wilbur and his adventures but my kids were not interested at all I think too many other wonderful books to compete with Off to the new school library because I don't want to forget it

    This was one of my favorite books growing up and also was one of my Mom's favorite books growing up I read this book so many times cause it was just so imaginative playful and laugh out loud funny Mortimer and Wilbur try so hard to fit in at their school and yet time and time again they cause scenes I'm an author now but this book inspired me at a young age to start writing paranormal

    Fun book to read to your childrenOne of my husband's favorite books from his childhood He read it out loud to our children and I was very surprised at how much they loved it They could follow the storyline and even tell me what I had missed on the evenings that I worked late

    I won't talk about the plot of this book because other people have done so also I don't want to ruin the suspense for people who have not read itI will just say that I first read this book when I was about 10 years old and I really enjoyed it Just very funny and very cute

    LOVED this book It was amusing had good characters and action overall super fun The Temple family kept their house nice and everyone still knew it was haunted The boys got bored so they went to school Oh the fun they had there This story is basically timeless The ghosts have witnessed their town grow over the years and know everyone They even set a few things straight with the town's historyThis is book one in a series and I may have to search for

    My Rating System not worth finishing wouldn’t recommend would recommend would highly recommend havewould read againAnd as I’m fond of saying“Even better than giving a book to a child to read; read it with them aloud After all it’s never to early to help a child discover the love of reading and the power of a good story”
