The Story Pirates Present
Ghosts? A mysterious plant? Something even more sinister? This spooky mystery (inspired by a real kid's idea) doubles as a creative writing guide for young writers!Eliza loves hunting ghosts -- too bad she's spending the summer helping her scientist mother study weird plants instead. But when a mysterious plant goes missing, things go from strange to downright spooky. Eliza is convinced something--or someone--is haunting the plant shop. Is she digging into dangerous ground? Like Stuck in the Stone Age, the first in the Story Pirates Present series, this spine-tingling mystery doubles as an introduction to the basics of creative writing. With the help of Story Pirate Captain Vincent Rolo and the Mystery Creation Zone, kids can use this kid-generated story as inspiration to create their OWN great mysteries!

    This book should be on every shelf in a library and in every elementary school classroom. This book was interactive, fun and interesting through and through. Students and children will not even know that they are learning because they will be so focused on the activities throughout the story plus find out what happens to Eliza and find out if there are really ghosts or has something gone wrong with her mother's crazy plants.Thank you Netgalley and Random House Children's for the ARC in exchange This book should be on every shelf in a library and in every elementary school classroom.

    Copy provided by the publisherI love West's work, and the basic story of this is okay, but the inclusion of information on how to write a story is a bit odd. Informative, sure, but having to turn to another page (as instructed-- I can't ignore the instructions!) took me out of the story time and again.If I were more familiar with the Story Pirates organization, this would have made more sense. I will see what my language arts teachers think about this one.

    Holy moly is this book a ton of fun. The story is just the right mix of spooky, tense, and hilarious. Throw in the writing guide in the back and you've got a lovely book for kids and the kid-at-heart.
