When one is taken by a book, sharing it with others is a pleasure. Ann Beach's exuberance for the adventures of intrepid Amy and her bird-watching friend, Hannah, pulls the listener quickly into Mary Hooper's SPOOK SPOTTING and SPOOKS AHOY! As Beach narrates and indulges Amy's vivid imagination, one enjoys the visit to the mysterious castle. In SPOOKS AHOY!, Hannah and Amy accompany Amy's mother on a week-long boating outing. Beach is again masterful in heightening the tension between Amy and her mom and stretching the suspense around the food contest and the phantom boat. The excitement of the mysterious and spooky will attract young listeners in any locale. While castles are easier for Americans to imagine than canal boating, Hooper's spook stories provide an enticing and easy way to assimilate British English and culture.
