The author came to Singapore recently during a writer’s festival. His books are usually best-sellers. This book is about boy who grows up in a graveyard and is raised and educated by ghosts and how he tries to find the murderer of his family later on. It sounds morbid but it is not gory or scary, the ghosts are more like friendly motherly kind of ghosts. The vocabulary used is good as well.
His use of sentence structure is very varied and the vocabulary can be used to help your child write better, especially for chase, fire and explosion scenes. The plot is about a 14 year old boy solving mysteries, like a cooler version of hardy boys. Boys really love his books.
