during Halloween season

My Rating:
4.8/5

My Thoughts:
Christina and her friends want something new and fun to do on Halloween. They go to a haunted house. There they meet a genie, a witch, a ballerina, and a cheerleader who need help finding things. They help them find them. Before leaving, they all get their picture taken.
This was a cute story and I liked how the witch was a nice witch and not a mean witch. It was also in both Spanish and English, and I loved that. It's not only a children's book, but a beginners book for people trying to learn either Spanish or English. It was a good book. And the pictures were extremely good for being done by someone who was self-taught.
