Ghosts of Greenglass House
By Kate Milford
Hi! Have you ever wanted to be alone for the holidays? Well, Milo did. If you haven’t read my book review on Greenglass House, you’ll need to read that one first. If you have, well, you know who Milo is. And Sirin, Negret, and all the others.
It all started with Emmett Syebuck. He was staying at Greenglass House because he was fascinated in the paintings inside. Milo just wanted to spend the holiday alone. A few days later, Georgie and Clem showed up and decided to stay at Greenglass House. They had some items that they thought were Violet Cross’, a famous smuggler. But they knew two other people were after the items they recovered. They were Gilawfer and Cantelbone. Next, the Waits showed up (a group of people who visit the Greenglass House every year). The people in the group are different each year. Then, Georgie and Clem’s stuff went missing. Their best assumption was that Gilawfer or Cantelbone had stolen the items and that one of them was secretly in the Waits group.
Then, Meddy appeared. She said that Negret wasn’t a good character for Milo at this particular time. He needed to be something different. Milo came up with a new character. He was half Ecstatic and half Monk of the Air. His name was Tengfei. Suddenly, crazy things started happening with the Waits. Rob, a Wait, messed up the fireplace. He was supposed to be a sweep but wasn’t doing it correctly. Mr. Larven got knocked out cold by a poisoned drink. And Mrs. Hereward, another Wait, and Marzana got knocked out cold because somebody conked them.
Once everyone had recovered, Tengfei tried to get everyone telling stories like last time. He succeed and they got a lot of information from Lucky’s tale. In the end it all led up to figuring out that Lucky isn’t the thief. They made a lot of assumptions after that, but they only got the real answer to who was stealing things.
Will they find the stolen items before it’s too late? Will they figure out who has done it? Or will everyone fail? As I always say, read the book to find out!
I recommend this book to readers who like books with conversation, because that’s what this book is. It’s a nice cozy mystery with lots of adventure along the way. Hope you enjoy!
A few helpful things I like to say about the books I read:
“Run and Get Mom” (how I describe the scariness factor): There were just a few scary parts in this book. Not that I’m going to mention anything, because they would give the whole book away.
“Yucky-Lovey Stuff” (how I describe the romance factor): There was no yucky-lovey stuff in this book.
I give this book 4 ½ wands.
It took me awhile to get into this book, but once I did, it was a very fun, exciting tale! But, I have to say, I did put it down a few times. But that doesn’t mean that this book isn’t good.
