The two authors, Debbie Dadey and Marcia Thornton Jones, got into the spirit of writing books when they worked at the same school in Kentucky.

Ghost Class

Have you ever heard or even seen a ghost class? Well if not, then know that it is possible especially in Ghostville Elementary. In this first installment, the authors Debbie and Marcia introduce the three most famous protagonists, Cassidy, Nina, and Jeff. The trios are third graders at Sleepy Hollow Elementary School, nicknamed Ghostville Elementary due to its numerous haunting activities in the school.

Everyone in Sleepy Hollow Elementary School things that the basement of the school is haunted; however no one has ever been downstairs to prove the rumors. Until now, this year when Jeff’s and Cassidy classroom is in the basement, but they are not scared because they believe that there is no such thing as a ghost, but is it true?

Unfortunately, what they encounter is quite the opposite, and the truth is that ghost truly exists. The school basement belongs to another particular class- a ghost class. The ghosts do not want to share, and they will haunt Jeff and Cassidy until they get their classroom back!

The first installment is a fantastic read; you will love how brevity of these two third graders and how they handle the situation at hand.

A tragedy at the Sleepy Hollow Elementary led to the existence of the ghost class. The way the author censors some information such as “the tragedy” makes the series a good read for kids between 6 and 10 or probably 11 years. The ghost class is similar to the normal class such that there exists some mean ghost, bullies and also some nice ghosts.

Ghost Game

Ghost game is the second installment of Ghostville Elementary series by Debbie Dadey. The first novel saw the Mrs. Morton third graders set up a classroom in their basement and invited their friend and family. However, the ghosts were neither friendly nor did they like any visitor in the basement. Now in the second book, the basement becomes tedious, and it is no longer a fun place for the ghosts, and the ghosts want to come out from the basement and have some good play times with the whole school.

However, the ghosts soon start haunting pupils as well as the teachers. Additionally, they set one condition which they will only stop their horrible hunt only if Cassidy, Jeff, and Nina can beat them in a basketball tournament. The trio is ready to play, but the problem is that these ghosts play to win and they do not adhere to the game rules.

Will the three third graders, Cassidy, Jeff and Nina beat the ghosts in a game that no one sticks to the rule? Alternatively, will they fail terribly and the ghost continue in their haunting activities?

The second novel installment is an amazing read. The conversations between the characters are great while the whole story will grip your attention from the start to the very end.

New Ghoul in School

The third installment New Ghoul in School by Debbie Dadey was published on January 1st, 2004 by Scholastic Paperbacks. The book is about three students, Nina, Jeff and Cassidy who attend Sleepy Hollow Elementary School. The school is haunted while their classroom is located down in the basement. Then a new boy enrolls in Nina, Cassidy and Jeff class. The boy seems strange; he floats above his chair, he is see-through and never seems to leave his classroom.

Could the new boy be a ghost? It is upon Nina and her friends to find out the truth about this boy, and so are the other ghosts! Could this enrollment mean more fun for the basement class or more haunting?

Happy Haunting

This is the fourth installment in Ghostville Elementary series by Debbie Dadey. It features a ghost class with a mind for serious mischief.

The third graders in Ghostville Elementary have invited their friends and families to visit their classrooms. Cassidy, Nina, and Jeff are all set to turn the class basement into a haunted house for the upcoming festival. However what the kids do not know is that the basement is already occupied by ghosts and the ghost in the basement are not friendly and do not like visitors at all. Can Cassidy and her classmates stop these ghosts before they can crash the planned party? Alternatively, will their friends and family discover that their school is haunted for real?

Stage Fright

It is show time; Cassidy, Nina, and Cassidy find some amazing credits for their class play when they get to visit a sale at Blackburn Mansion. However, on their return, they bring more than pet dish and antique fiddle. They bring with them more ghosts, and the ghosts love to sing all the time. However, the problem is that the Ghostville ghosts want to steal the spotlight and ruin the entire class play. The show must continue but cannot go on like this, unless someone intervenes.

Debbie Dadey, Ghostville Elementary series is one of its kinds. The author showcases her writing skills in a way that the reader is left thirsty for more and more drama.
