Grade 5-7-- Frederick "Nutty" Nutsell is starring in what he describes as the worst movie ever made. The dreadful script and eccentric director are terrible enough, but when he is blamed for a series of near-disasters on the set, Nutty realizes that something does not want the film to be completed. He discovers the ghost of a disgruntled actor who is seeking revenge on the director for ruining his career. The story features crisp dialogue, a touch of scariness, and some truly classic bad movie scripting. Readers will appreciate this lively, humorously haunting tale. --Elaine E.

On the heels of his triumphant acting debut (Nutty the Movie Star, 1989), Nutty Nutsell--now known as ``Parker House''-- captures the lead in The Tae Kwon Do Guy, a bad movie that (he realizes) is perfectly suited to his lack of talent. Worse, a disgruntled ghost is out to sabotage the flick and bring an end to the career of mercurial director Damian Deveraux. Can Nutty survive the ghost-hunting schemes of his brainy friend William Bilks, and also bow gracefully out of the film project? Yes--especially once he discovers that the ghost is willing to make a deal. Nutty displays both common sense and a stout heart in this seventh episode in a lightweight, popular series.
