Grade 3-5–In this sequel to Ghosthunters and the Incredibly Revolting Ghost (Scholastic, 2006), the phantom-fighting team is summoned to the remote Seafront Hotel to deal with another case of otherworldly mischief. The clues–hot water, steam, and sulfurous odors–seem to indicate the presence of a harmless Fire Ghost, but when Tom and Hetty Hyssop try to tackle the sizzling spook, they discover that there is a much more dangerous entity involved. Then Seafront guests begin disappearing, and the duo realize that they are outmatched. Only the third member of the crew, Hugo, an ASG (Averagely Spooky Ghost), has the occult skills to battle the sinister Lightning Ghost before it incinerates the hotel–and everybody in it. The Ghosthunters are delightfully diverse: nine-year-old Tom is a cool-headed, cautious type; Hetty is a feisty, no-nonsense senior citizen; and complaining, pouting, ego-tripping Hugo is a reluctant contributor but always comes through in the end. Much of the humor is conveyed through crisp, lively dialogue and dramatic scene descriptions. While the team's off-the-wall techniques are generally played for laughs, there are also some genuinely scary moments. Black-and-white cartoon illustrations add to the fun. A winning combination of chills and chuckles.–Elaine E. Knight, Lincoln Elementary Schools, IL

The latest in a series of humorous adventures about expert ghost hunter Hetty, her sidekick Tom, and their affiliate ghost, Hugo, this novel offers some unusual characterizations along with nonstop action. Hetty and her crew are called to help solve a haunting problem at a seaside hotel, which requires them to employ everything from crafty detective skills to ghostly slime. Hetty is the brains of the outfit, Tom the spunk, and mischievous Hugo comes through in a pinch. More silly that scary. Francisca Goldsmith

(More dangerous than most)
Now Hetty Hyssop and her crew
Must tackle a new ghost
They go to a seaside hotel
(The staff are agitated)
And find the manager's report
Was badly understated
Equipped to fight a fire ghost
They find something much stronger
They use the tools they have on hand
(I won't go on much longer)
The moral of this Funke-y tale
Is simple and sublime
A well placed gob of slime"

Ghosthunters And The Muddy Monster Of Doom! (Ghosthunters)
I enjoyed this one as much as the first in the series...I mean what's not to love about an eccentric ghost hunter lady, a 9 year old apprentice and their very own ASG? I think that Ghosthunters and the Gruesome Invincible Lightening Ghost has genuine hair-raising moments mixed with just the right about of absurd humor, making this ideal for young readers! Who couldn't love a story where the main human characters don protective suits of tin foil coated in sugar and who tote icing guns! It's FANTASTIC fun...with genuine scares worked in. We all love these stories and we're anxiously awaiting the next volume! I give it a sold A, a fine read for 6-12 year old with the idea reading range probably at 8-10. This format is great for newer chapter book readers and still has illustrations (black and white, rather cartoonish) to help bring the story to life for young readers!
