Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Principal Walter Russ just wanted a simple proposal to trim the overgrown trees outside Geyser Creek Middle School. So how did he end up with a wedding (rather than a weeding) proposal from designer Florence Waters? And that's not all . . . Angelo, the new cafeteria chef from Italy, has taken up residence in Mr. N.'s classroom. A sixth-grader has moved into the weeping willow tree behind school. And all the girls in Geyser Creek are boycotting the boys. As Chef Angelo would say: Aye-yi-yi.

Sisters Kate and Sarah Klise have created an uproarious third book in their award-winning Regarding the . . . series. Told in newspaper articles, letters, and secret notes, Regarding the Trees has all the elements of everyone's favorite Klise books--including lots of surprises.

Includes tips on planting a tree and creating a family tree.

Synopsis:

The hilarious third book in the REGARDING series will LEAF you begging for more!

Synopsis:

In Ghastly, Illinois, the news is grave, indeed. Dick Tater from the International Movement for the Safety & Protection Of Our Kids & Youth (IMSPOOKY) is concerned that 11-year-old Seymour Hope is living in the Spence Mansion "without the benefit of parents." Ignatius B. Grumply tries to explain that Seymours in a lovely living arrangement with himself and the ghost of Olive C. Spence. But Dick Tater is not convinced. He commits Grumply to the Illinois Home for the Deranged, sends Seymour to the Ghastly Orphanage, and announces his plan to exhume the body of Olive C. Spence. And just in time for Halloween! In this second volume from 43 Old Cemetery Road, the Klise sisters take readers on a riotous romp through a hilariously haunted town that, in the end, feels just like home sweet home.
