Praise for The Locker Ate Lucy! (Eerie Elementary #2): "A good fit for readers not quite ready for... Goosebumps." -- Booklist
Praise for The School Is Alive! (Eerie Elementary #1): "The plot and twisted storyline will serve the beginning chapter book reader well. Word choice, action, and crisp sketches support the story, allowing early readers to develop ideas and easily follow the plot." -- Library Media Connection "Give this early chapter book to readers who want something scary but aren't ready for the 'Goosebumps' or 'Scream Street' series." -- School Library Journal "Readers who relish the action of Dav Pilkey's Ricky Ricotta series and... R.L. Stine's Rotten School titles may want to enroll at Eerie Elementary." -- Booklist
