Book Description

The Annoying Ghost Kid is a funny story about Corky, a ten year old boy, who is tormented by Duke, a younger boy who happens to be a ghost. Duke loves to play practical jokes on Corky. It’s like having a pesky little brother with special powers. The fun begins when Corky, and his friend Jill, are challenged to find imaginative ways to stop the ghost kid’s tricks! In the beginning, the ghost kid clearly has the advantage, but eventually, Corky and Jill finally figure out how to turn things around on their transparent tormenter. Then, it’s back and forth, and the pranks get funnier and funnier as the supernatural nuisance goes head to head with two increasingly clever kids.

5.0 out of 5 stars Clever & Entertaining November 11, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
Every young kid loves ghost stories and this one is most clever and entertaining. An easy read that is hard to walk away from; more than likely a story that kids will request over and over.

5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderfully easy read December 20, 2011
The Annoying Ghost Kid is one of the few books that my six year old son
could not wait to read each evening. Usually, we read one chapter of a book
each night, however; we read at least 3 chapters of the Annoying Ghost Kid
each night. Once we were finished, he asked his first grade teacher if I
could come in and read the book to the class. The students look forward to
learning what will happen next to Corky & Jill (or Duke). I have found that
boys and girls like this book equally well. I would recommend this book to
parents or teachers of elementary school age kids.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Anti-Bullying Message January 6, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
What a wonderful read with a powerful message for children! Should be a must read in our schools!

I was looking for a book that my nieces would both enjoy and that would help with their reading. "The Annoying Ghost Kid" delivered in more ways than I expected. It is a delightful book that encourages children to find creative solutions to problems, and presents an Anti-Bullying message in a fun and enjoyable story. Other themes and positive messages I found in the book are: encouraging non-violence, personal responsibility, honesty, and friendship.

I agree with educators that the only solution to bullying is to educate and empower our children to stop bullying before it starts. I believe this book is a terrific start in educating our children how to be "first responders" at the onset of bullying.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Annoying Ghost Kid December 26, 2011
The Annoying Ghost Kid is a great tale for children of all ages. The story centers on Corky, a child who is discouraged by life because his best friend has moved away. With the encouragement of his mom he seeks to find a new BFF, but, in the process finds a ghost kid who is more than irritating because of his continual exhibition of mean, practical jokes. The antics of the ghost kid coupled with the way Corky and his friend Jill set out to sabotage the pranks pose interesting thought and conversation about life. It's a must read for families everywhere and would be a great addition to school media centers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for kids everywhere! December 22, 2011
The Annoying Ghost Kid is a wonderfully funny and entertaining read. Dukey is the anti-Casper. He throws acorns, pulls ponytails, and ruins basketball practice. He meets his match with two very resourceful and clever children, who are also the only ones who can see him. When they decide they've had enough of his pranks, that's when the fun starts! Throw in haunted houses and magical tree-dwelling elves, and you've got all the ingredients for a first rate children's book. I can't wait until Volume 2, and see what kind of mischief Dukey can get himself into next.

5.0 out of 5 stars Annoying and Entertaining January 4, 2012
Imagine being annoyed by someone you can't see, hear or touch (except when he wants you to). That's Corky's dilemma in "The Annoying Ghost Kid", a book your youngster will enjoy and you will enjoy reading to him. Corky and his friend Jill are haunted by Duke, a ghost boy with dead aim (pun intended) with acorns, a mischievous smile, and more mischief in his heart. The battle sways back and forth as Corky and Jill attempt to turn the tables. You never know what's going to happen next, but the most important event happens on the very last page...

5.0 out of 5 stars A friendly ghost story for the younger set December 21, 2011
Kids want to read what's cool, including ghost stories. Parents want kids to love reading, but be able to sleep at night! Rob Wilson has the perfect solution in The Annoying Ghost Kid. Duke, the ghost kid, isn't really scary; instead, he is into pesky pranks. A bonus of the book is that the other characters model the benefits of being resourceful and creative when they come up with solutions to outsmart the ghost kid. A fun and quick read!
