The story itself was geared to the YA age group, but could be enjoyed by adults as well. As I said, it was a bit deeper, darker, and more thoughtful than the first book. While this was by no means a serious book, it might be a good book for a parent to read with a YA and discuss afterwards some of the moral and ethical dilemmas that Milrose and his friends faced. Definitely recommended for anyone, of any age, with a very quirky sense of humor!
Note on Kindle formatting: Very good, but not perfect. Most of the book had several lines between paragraphs, most obviously during conversations. That gave the feel that there were incredible pauses between responses. There was one section where there were no spaces between paragraphs at all, and that didn't strike me as 'quite right' either. Neither of those actually impacted reading, and if I remember correctly, the "Den of Professional Help" also had the multiple spaces between paragraphs, so that may be intentional. Either way, it's non-standard but only takes a minute or two to get used to.
The few who don't find this dynamic duo odd? Well they're dead. They're the air that the two are talking to. Okay, maybe they are even a few wise (or not so wise) among the living who know the truth and/or accept them as they are. Kitty Muell, for example, Arabella's biggest fan (besides Milrose, of course). Caroline Corduroy, the principal.
When the usual cast starts to notice something odd - like the fact that the chalkboards are no longer green for the normal reason, but instead because plants are growing from them, Milrose gets a little concerned. More so when Arabella starts acting odd(er). The principal goes missing. And the evil Loosten is suddenly smack dab in the middle of everything... again. And that's just the beginning... I wouldn't want to spoil too much for you, now would I?
Can Milrose and his dead buddies save the school and come out of this one alive (and dead as the case may be?).
This book is listed in children's books - and it is. But even if you don't love those or "YA" books (which I do), you'd probably still find this one a bit different. It's smarter than the usual children's series. Yes it uses the occasional big word.Read more ›

I liked the first book in this series better than this one, but this one isn’t bad at all. It has a twisted kind of humor, and uses some big words, so I’d recommend it for the... Read morePublished 10 months ago by Silvara Wilde

As some others have noted, this book is a lot darker than the first and actually took me a bit to fully digest it. Present are the rapid fire dialogue that we all know and love. Read morePublished on April 3, 2011 by Labrynth
