Reader Reviews

The Midnight Ghosts
I am 7 years old, I really like this book becuse it was exciting to read and it was very scary too. Now I think ghosts are there in this world. I like the character, Archibald Midnight as I liked the way he had hidden the blue stone.

The Midnight Ghosts
I've just finished reading the book it was really great book and is a bit scary. I like this book because it was adventurous in some parts of the book! I recommend this book to young readers because this book is not too lengthy like what I have read in the past few years and its a picture book, so if you don't feel like reading books that are lengthy THIS BOOK IS YOURS! E N J O Y!!!

I liked the Midnight Ghosts because it had lots of adventures. My favourite character was the maid Marcia because she helped Adam and Sally get the Midnight Stone in the urn.
