Mystery of the Ballerina Ghost Reviews
(I received this book for free as part of Goodreads First Reads giveaways).(This review may contain spoilers).I found this book to be a really quick, easy read. I think it's a really good one for young children to read and learn about Austria.The series is a pretty neat idea. This is the sort of book I probably would have loved as a child. The girls were easy to engage with and there was nothing really scary about the book. It was nice to see Brooke and Eva become friends.I felt that the author did a really good job of imparting information about Austria without it feeling like an info-dump. There were some bits that made me smile in this book - and I liked the fact that, at the end, there's more information about Austria, including some of the language to learn and a recipe to try out so a child can see what the food is like there.I'm going to pass this book on to my niece, because I'm pretty sure she'll like it and it should help her with her reading. If she does like it, well, that's some birthday or Christmas presents figured out.
Mystery of the Ballerina Ghost is set in a castle in Austria. Grandfather has the best in mind for his granddaughter who is tutored and has private lessons of all kinds. They are happy to have visitors from Colorado, USA, who find a mystery in progress. Events get tense with a possible ghost in the castle, and the visitors pack to leave. However, all works out for the best as the mystery is solved. Horseback riding is part of this story which is perfect for the girls who love travel, adventure, and horses. Quite a fun read!Pack-n-Go Girls are Lexile rated as high second grade for schools that use AR (Accelerated Reader) and rated O with F&P (Fountas & Pinnell).I purchased my copy on Amazon.
3.5/5 starsBrooke and her mother are headed to a castle in Austria for her mom's job. Eva and her grandfather live in the castle and so does, says Eva, a ballerina ghost. Brooke and Eva have a great time playing and exploring and, finally, finding out just what the ghost wants.The latter portion of the book is an informational guide about traveling in Austria. It gives general information, German phrases, and, best of all, several blank pages for kids to dream about what they'd pack and where they'd go if they were going to Austria.I would have loved books like this as a kid. It's a great idea and I hope to see more from the Pack-n-Go Girls.
I was given an early copy of this to read for a fair review. I love the use of history and geography in this great story for young girls. The mystery is intriguing and spooky (in a fun way). The illustrations are really excellent and add to the story. That Herr Mueller is one creepy dude! I can see third grade girls eating this up.
I love that these books really take kids on a travel adventure--the reader can see the area, smell the aromas, taste the food. And the illustrations are incredible. The fact that this series is a mystery is a big bonus.
A very cute book of a girl who makes up a story about a ghost because she is lonely and looking for attention and a few friends her age. A nice bit of history on Austria and even a little on Colorado. I plan to give my copy to a friend who has a 10 year old daughter.
