I am beyond excited to welcome a special guest blogger to Jenn’s Bookshelves: The Girl, daughter of Anna, Diary of an Eccentric!
Do you like to play cards? Yes? Then pick a card. Uh-oh. Brittany picked a joker. And it’s no laughing matter. Because these jokers are deadly.
On your way home from school – riding your bike – even in your hall closet – they attack! Each time, they stamp a card suit on your arm – first a club, then a diamond, then a heart – then a spade. That’s when the game really starts … when you get all four suits. Because that’s when the joker plays for keeps!
**The Girl’s review:
The book, Spell of the Screaming Jokers, is about 4 kids, Brittany, Frankie, Louisa, and Jeff. Their principal tells them that they have to visit this sick kid named Max. His mother, Mrs. Davidson, takes them to his room. Max wants to play cards. Frankie draws a joker. On the way home, a kid hurts him and gives him a bruise shaped like a club. Then weird things start happening.
I recommend this book for age 8 and up for kids who like creepy stories. I loved this book and hope to read more from the series.
Thank you, The Girl! Be sure to check out her mom/Anna’s blog where The Girl occasionally reviews!
